13 of the hardest things about being a book lover

Do you read a lot? Come be with your people.

NOT EVERYONE IS into books, which is something that is virtually impossible for a book lover to understand.

For them, the joy of getting into a good book is almost impossible to compete with.

However, it’s not all easy, in fact, being a book lover comes with its challenges.

Challenges like these.
