If we all think long and hard enough (some of us might not even have to ponder the matter too much), we can all come up with a dirty little secret about our reading habits that we”ve been hiding in the bookshelves of our brains. Mine would be that I haven’t read any of the Harry Potter or Lord of The Rings series’ (not so much a secret, just something that has caused a few people to stare at me in utter disbelief when I have uttered it).
One bibliophile has given us the courage to come clean by compiling a range of Bookfessions – a list of confessions and candid thoughts that plague lovers of literature. And it seems as a collective, we have a lot on our minds (perhaps rather unsurprising) – there are now 900 ‘bookfessions’ listed, amongst which include judging a book by its cover, investing far too much emotion in fictional characters (I confess to being guilty of that also) and – particularly apt for this love-themed week and very sweet indeed – one book lover who confesses to ‘having’ a book rather than a song with their significant other (altogether: awwww).
We’re sure there’s plenty more bookfessions to be shared – why not let us know about yours?
