A Book Lover Listicle from BuzzFeed

Another three weeks have flown by since I last blogged! This past week I was in San Diego for a big data conference, and there will definitely be more business traveling in the near future.

But in the nearer future (4 days to be exact!), I’m heading out to Las Vegas again for another much-needed girls trip! I realize that my love for Sin City may be obsessive, since this will be my 5th visit in about two years (!!!), but what can I say? Nothing like partying night after night with your some of your best friends!

As for catching up on reading, I’m more than half-way into my latest book–Nerds Like It Hot by Vicki Lewis Thompson–which I hope to finish while recuperating during the Labor Day weekend.

Until then, let me share a fun listicle from that site I love to hate, BuzzFeed. BuzzFeed is the online equivalent of cotton candy to me: it’s sweet but with absolutely no substance. I can only read it in small doses (because honestly, how much ’90s nostaglia does one need?), but this post made me smile.

Titled, “17 Problems Only Book Lovers Will Understand,” it highlights the emotions of a die-hard reader. Below I’ve reproduced some of my favorite gifs:

And feel free to share your own book lover problems in the comments!
