I don’t know if I’ve already mentioned this before but my very first set of book ends, were red and Dr. Seuss themed. And boy, did I love them. I dug them out of the memorabilia boxes in the garage and seeing them made me do a massive search on Pinterest, subject: book ends. Here are some of the coolest ones I found

Dreaming Novel Things: Bookworms– Glamorized in Fiction, Crazed in Reality

There’s hundreds of bookworms scattered throughout fiction and many of us love these characters because they depict our deepest love: books. We bookworms can relate to the character who can’t put down the book, but are these characters an accurate representation? Not by a long shot. You see, writers glamorize bookworms to cast them in a better light because we bookworms like to think of ourselves equivalent to the likes of Belle. But my fellow bookworms, its time to be honest. No more will we lie to ourselves! We bookworms are much more wild than our fictional counterparts. We are absolutely CRAZED. Need some proof? Keep on reading buddy, but prepare yourself. Otherwise I have to get into my whole “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!” lecture and no one likes a long blog post.

You wake up and it’s a normal day. You eat breakfast, brush your teeth and go on with your day like any other. You’re just coming back from your lunch hour (a little late because the line at Subway was ridiculously long) when the guy who sits in the cubicle behind you asks for the date.

You look at the calendar on your desk to check, slightly annoyed because no matter how many times you tell that guy to get a calendar he insists he doesn’t need one. Your finger searches the calendar and lands on today’s date and suddenly you freeze. No, it can’t be today. Did a whole year really go by that fast? You sit in your desk chair with poor back support stunned. You aren’t ready, you need more time. This isn’t fair you think, as you start to get teary eyed, time couldn’t possibly have gone by that fast. But alas, the day is here. The day the last book in a beloved series comes out has arrived and with it sorrow.

Okay guys, my hand is up, I’ll admit there are a few books I don’t read in public. These books are hidden in the deepest corners of my room, only brought out in the times when I am entirely alone. These poor books have never seen the light of day and never known the sound of a child’s laughter. They’ve never smelled the wonderful aroma of bacon or tasted the salty air at the beach.

When my friends rant about these books, I half-heartedly agree, not wanting to give away my secret. I pretend to laugh at the clichés, I pretend to scoff at the sappiness, but in my heart I cringe.
