I love the Book Nerd Problems videos created by Epic Reads because they could literally be a biography for my entire life. Almost all of the problems bookworms experience are encapsulated in these videos, from accidently reading the second book of a series first to dealing with the death of a favorite character to getting over a book hangover. I love these videos, so here are a few personal suggestions of bookworm problems that Epic Reads still needs to make videos for:
- The old flashlight-under-the-blanket trick: When I was a kid and my parents sent me to bed right when I reading the climax of a story, I would take my purple flashlight and read under the covers for several more hours. I may or may not still do this.
- Which book to read first: Do you ever get a bunch of great books from the library and can’t decided which one you should start on first, even after you read the inside flap descriptions, take a look at the author bios, and compare covers?
- The Great Book-Mixing Debate: Are you okay with clashing plots and characters by greedily reading several books at once, or do heroically preserve the integrity of these stories by reading one book at a time (guess which side of this debate I fall on).
- Buckle-up books: Do you ever pick up so many books from the library that your book bag registers as a person when you put it on the passenger seat of the car? I once buckled up my books, as you can see from the photo below to turn off that blinking passenger light (and also because the books were in danger of tipping).
