Welcome to another #ReaderProblems post! This is inspired by my previous post- ‘Library Books for Summer Holidays 2015’. So thank you, earlier-today-me!
The sound of the protective cover-thingy. You know how they put that clear plastic thing over the cover to protect it? Yeah, I hate the texture, the look, the feel and most of all the sound of that thing. I love that the classics don’t have them in my library!!!!
Unless I am really anticipating a book, I have to force myself to read the books and not just take them back unread. I have so many other books I want to read as well and I can’t just ‘take those back’. I just don’t have as much motivation for reading library books.
They are always hardback. Except for the classics in my library, again yay! I don’t typically mind hardbacks but unless they are smaller than the normal ones I find them too large for my hands (my hands are tiny). They’re just not comfortable to hold.
There’s a time limit. I don’t like being rushed which is one of the reasons I often end up hating books that I have to read for school- not always, but sometimes. I am a huge mood reader (although I do commit to a TBR but I always make sure it holds a great variety) and I don’t like only having 3 weeks to read a book…. because that means that unless it is at the end of the month I a) might not want to read it but also b) It won’t be on my TBR and I won’t necessarily get to read all of the books that I committed to reading!
And that’s about it! Do you like libraries? The librarians at my library (not all of them, just some) aren’t particularly nice. I often end up taking back half of the books I check out. What about you?
