Common Bookish Thoughts:
"Just a couple more pages!"
"One more chapter! That's it! Then I will shut my book."
"I need to know why that happened... Um, maybe just a tiny, tiny bit more?"
We all have those times when we are reading a really, really good book and tell ourselves "I'll just read to the end of this chapter..." As you probably know, this never works. I can almost guarantee you will end up reading, well, nearly the whole book. Also, you will get nothing useful done.
Most of the time, this isn't such a bad trait. However, there are times when my mom pops her head into my room and reminds me I have to sweep before ballet. My response is, "Just one more chapter! Then I will sweep." Needless to say, the sweeping gets done very hurriedly at the last second.
Now, you may be wondering why I chose to write about this topic today. Well, I was actually planning on writing a review today. The key word in that sentence was planning... Anyway, I started reading Crash Into You by Katie McGarry and, instead of penning up a review like a good little book blogger, I read the whole entire book. Now, I am doing a discussion post because they are quicker and I tend to spend a lot of time on my reviews.
Other "Just One More Page" Books.
Another time I read the entire sixth Harry Potter book. Yeah, there was no sleep that night, no matter how hard I tried to convince myself to put the book down and get some shut-eye.
Also, one weekend I spent an entire day reading Through the Zombie Glass. I was a sad excuse for a blogger that Saturday too, just like today.
How could I have almost forgotten Fangirl? I stayed up 'till two am reading that jewel. I fell asleep on a pile of laundry that I probably should have hung up and I was still in my jeans.
Do you have the same habits? Have you had the same experience?
