Dreaming Novel Things: You Might Be a Bookworm if You…

dreamingnovelthingsDreaming Novel Things is a feature in which I discuss book related subjects, but in a creative way. I’ll use interviews, narratives and lists to talk about book trends, book opinion and bookish matters. If you have any book related subjects you’d like to see me discuss just leave me a comment below!

Ever hear of Jeff Foxworthy? If not then surely you’ve heard the famous line “you might be a redneck if you…”? If you haven’t then you should check it out because Jeff Foxworthy is hilarious. I started thinking though that this line could be applied to all us bookworms.

Just tell me if I’m wrong.
