Being a reader through the course of time and especially when on a reading streak, one had spoken out lies that your family and friends got their eyes rolling. Right? I have here seven lies that mostly we readers tried to convince ourselves but still ended up doing, the inevitability of it all.
Things listed in here are solely based from my personal experience and observations upon the bookish community and bookish friends.
1. The classic “just one more page”, “or chapter”.
Please, we all know how instances like this end up. It ends up pulling an all-nighter, a set of new eye-bags, and a finished book. Or in a worst case, a sob-fest suffering from all that feels may it be pure joy or rage.
And do, admit, it’s still something we try to avoid but cluelessly finds out when we are already fallen into the pit of excitement. And girl, was #worthit? Probably.
2. My To-Be-Read pile is completely “under control”.
Ha-ha-ha, but really though is it really?
