2. Pride and Prejudice is NOT every person's favourite book.

Though many of us do enjoy rereading and picturing Colin Firth forever and always.

Sorry, but no one is worth killing yourself over. There are too many books in the world left to read.

Bow down to the book queen.


12. There will be books all over the house...

We like to be surrounded by our favourite things, aka books and you.

14. Sometimes we will read at the dinner table.

No offense.


18. So you should probably add Zadie Smith, Flannery O'Conner, Junot Diaz, et al to your shelf.

You can find some pretty excellent reccomendations for diversifying your reading list here, here, here, and here.

21. Good book withdrawal is a real thing.

Bring chocolate. And more books.
