My name is Patricia and I am a book junkie.

I got this blog post idea from The Belgian Reviewer (via Jade over @ Drink Coffee and Read Books and Eve @ Eve Messenger’s Otherworldly Endeavors).

Reading/taking this Addiction diagnostic test made me laugh out loud.

Directions: Mark each statement that applies to you.

tick 1. I have dropped a book on my face. More than once.  (Wow!  I didn’t realize this was a thing!)

tick 2. On social media, I follow writers, not singers and movie stars. #jojomoyes 🙂

tick 3. “Unputdownable” IS a word.

tick 4. My idea of a great weekend is starting a new book on Friday at 5 p.m.

tick 5. My fingers type “Google” into the web address bar but somehow I keeping winding up at Goodreads.

tick 6. If I leave the house without a book I feel naked   I have a mini-panic attack. I never leave the house without a book.

tick7. I freely admit I’ve hugged, kissed and/or lovingly patted a book.

red-cross-2 8. My favorite thing in my wallet is my library card. (It’s actually on my keychain…)

red-cross-2 9. I plan road trips just to listen to audio books. (It’s bike rides, in my case.)

tick 10. While reading a book I am oblivious to the outside world. People can shout my name, gesture rudely, but short of bodily injury, I will not notice them.

tick11. I’m happy if there’s a long wait at the mechanic/doctor’s office/airport because it means I get to read.

tick12. When putting together a travel checklist, my first item is always: “books to read.”

tick13. In lines or at doctor’s offices, when everyone else around me is tapping out messages on their cell phones, my face is buried in a book. (Kindle….)

tick14. If a novel I’m reading has a plot twist I wholeheartedly disagree with, I will complain, out loud, to my book.

tick15. When I discover a new book I’d like to read, the first thing I do is to list it as “want to read” on Goodreads. Then I blog about it. (I tweet about it.  My to-read list has more than 1,500 books on it.)

red-cross-2 16. If I reach for a book, my household pets jump onto my favourite reading chair. (My fish doesn’t jump.  Oh, Mr. Ruffles…)

red-cross-217. My favourite historical figure is Booker T. Washington.

tick 18. When I meet new people, the first question I ask is, “What kinds of books do you like to read?”  (I definitely do this.  Is it strange?  No, right?)

tick19. The only thing better than buying new books is when someone reads—and likes—a book I’ve recommended to them.

tick20. I read posts entitled “How to Tell if You’re a Book Junkie.”



  1. #3 = I’m so glad to know, it’s a struggle I’ve not had a name for Lolol
