So why should books should be one of the 7 deadly sins? Actually, I think the 7 deadly sins should just be renamed 'feelings about books' or 'symptoms of being a book lover'.
How it relates to books: Give me all the books, and then give me some more. I have over 200 books on my kindle waiting to be read, and about 100 physical books around the house that also need to be read, but if I go into a bookstore / goodreads / amazon, suddenly I need all the books.
How it relates to books: Any book lover knows what it's like to 'waste' a day (or five) away by reading, but it's not wasted is it? Course not. Also, choosing reading over doing something productive (but reading is productive! Right?) could be considered sloth like as well.
How it relates to books: Us book lovers are proud to be so, am I right? It is the reason we recommend books, defend them and choose them.
How it relates to books: 50 Shades is popular for a reason, just saying.
How it relates to books: Envious of a character's life, chances and choices, or envious of the fact that someone else was approved / sent an ARC that you were denied.. envious of other people's fancy bookshelves, sigh. and yes, this includes the Beauty & the Beast library.
How it relates to books: Actually, this might be the only one I can't justify because there is no such thing as an excess when it comes to reading! Like too many books is a thing?! I don't think so.
ps. this post is a joke. If you are religious, I do apologise if it offends you.
Okay, so am I alone here or do other book lovers feel the same?
