I think we bookworms share many things aside from our obsessive love for books. And here I am presenting you some of them. (This data is purely from my observation only and meant to be just for fun!)


And while I told you before that I rarely use it because I read on one sitting, many bookworms showcase their wide range of bookmarks. From fancy glittery ones to cute animal illustration, it is without a doubt nice to have these things. Heck, I admit I bought bookmarks even for the heck of it.

Post it Notes

Because every important dialogue, scene, moment should be forever marked for easy access, post it notes is also a must for some readers. I don’t do this myself (I don’t like any kind of distractions) but I’m always amazed how diligent they are marking pages while reading.


Whether it’s from Starbucks or just from your kitchen, I always see beverage + books combination on Instagram which led me to a conclusion that drinks and book is a good blend (did you see the pun there, all hail to Haise as his puns are rubbing on me).


My poor eyesight is not because of reading, it is because of too much exposure from the computer. I have you know that up until first/second year of university my eyesight is 20/20. It deteriorates when I was in my later years in college after sleepless night typing a lot of case studies, report, and the thesis. I don’t know but I noticed some bookworms also wear glasses—is it prescription glasses like mine? I’m not sure; it’s a trend we do share.


I’m not going to include myself in this because my photography skills? Zero! So I don’t even want to buy those fancy cameras. But some bookish folks do have some amazing knack on photography and I’m legit jealous of their IG feed. It’s like they have everything. T.T


I confessed before that I can now read book while listening to music. It’s a talent I had acquired recently. Many book lovers however create playlist for their favorite books. I think I saw an abundant of posts about playlist to reach this conclusion.

Never ending TBR pile.

Pffft!!!! Do I need to elaborate this? It’s both joy and sorrow to have many books to read yet no time to do so.

Book Blog

Because we need to share the feels that books give us, right?

  1. Bookmarks! Goodness me, I have HUNDREDS of them! But I love them ^.^

    I don’t use post-its, either! But I think its awesome that some people can. Sometimes I will be reading a book and I will want some way of highlighting a line or passage but because I refuse to mark my books in any way, I have to just let it go >.<

    And I don't drink whilst reading! I don't like eating whilst reading, either. I always have to pull myself out of the book to eat and drink, and I don't like doing that.

    I have glasses, too. I've had them since I was about 5 years old, but originally they weren't for my crappy vision. I took years to get new ones, and my eyesight deteriorated because of that :/

    I wish I had photography skills! I really want to get into it, so maybe I should buy one of those fancy cameras!

    I can sometimes listen to music when reading but I'm finding that I want to less and less now. I don't know what's happened to me XD

    And yes of course to the never-ending TBR and book blog!

      I think should be getting a new pair been using mine for two years and it feels like it’s not the right prescription anymore. I don’t drink, too. Too scared to spill something. xD

  2. Haha my photography skills are ZERO as well! I use my phone to take a quick snap of what I’m reading though, but it’s not like a fancy picture with a nice background etc. I just want to show people what I’m reading and ask them what they’re reading. I also need to have a bookmark with me (unless I’m using my Kindle to read). I can’t finish a book in one sitting no matter how good it is. LOL I think a lot of avid readers have a never ending TBR pile.

    I’ve always wanted a Wreck This Journal! But I don’t think I would ever write/use/wreck it! But yeah, there are a lot of bloggers that have all of these in instagram photos. I personally don’t have any bookmarks though. It’s pretty sad 😛

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I saw someone from tumblr photos after he/she finished it and it looks fun! No bookmarks you say, they are pretty even if they are for me just an eye-candy. 😛 You should get one!

  4. 1. I have bookmarks… But then I end up losing most of them. :/ I’m trying to take better care of them, but after I use it around twice or thrice, it magically gets eaten up by our house elves.

    2. It isn’t until recently that I began using post its, but they’re useful for reviewers and if you’re huge on rereading (which I’m not).

    3. I don’t drink coffee. Or tea. 🙁 It’s usually just iced tea for me!

    4. Yup. Eyeglasses. Mine’s probably from using the computer, too. Luckily I don’t really need to use my glasses unless I’m on the computer. My vision’s still 25/50 for now!

    5. What! I love your photos, girl. 😉 I don’t have a camera, either. I really want one, though. Especially a Polaroid, but those are expensive, plus you still have to buy film.

    6. Whoops. Not a music person, so I don’t have a reading playlist… I have a playlist for studying which includes a bit of textbook reading, if that counts. xD

    7. YEP. It neverrrrr ends.

    8. Gotcha. 😉

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Lol, I know, sometimes I lost things around the house. Jealous that you can still see w/o glasses. I need glasses or I might end up bumping on walls. No playlist, you’re kinda novelty, many people have playlist and saw dozens of it from other blogs.

      And yes, it never ends.

  5. Alice says:

    Ha! This is brilliant, and oh so true.

  6. Alysia says:

    I used to have a big bookmark collection but they went missing in the process of me moving a couple years ago. 🙁 I need to build up my collection again. I also need to go to the eye doctor I’m 100% sure I need glasses! 😛 Great post!

  7. I have glasses too and I have no idea if it comes from looking at the screen of just because it’s in the family. Almost everyone has glasses. I looooove bookmarks and I always use them, because if there is one thing I hate it’s dog-earing. A never-ending TBR pile, haha, guilty (and also never-ending wishlists)

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Really? In my case, except for my brother, we’re all wearing prescribed eyeglasses (maybe mine, too). Eeeep, wishlist, yeah!

  9. I wish reading non-stop wouldn’t affect my eyes so much! I wear night contacts since that’s easier for me but pretty much everyone I know who reads wears glasses or day contacts. 😛

  10. Annie says:

    I don’t have post-it notes but I think they’d be so cute! Especially those little post it flags. I don’t know if I’d actually use them unless I’m reading a book for school but in theory, they’d be really nice!

    I usually just drink water when I read or nothing at all but coffee/tea would be great! I’ve always wanted to just take a book to a coffeeshop and read. Weird that I live walking distance to 6+ Starbucks and a bunch of other coffeeshops and I have never done that!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I have post-it notes just because haha. But they are so cute, so I want one, haha.

      I’m surrounded by malls and there are like Starbucks in there but i never tried reading in public place, I find it uncomfortable some how.

    Sounds like university is dangerous 😉 I’m in my third year and my eyes were already bad but I could totally see why yours would go downhill after all that work you did. You know, I have TONS of post it notes going unused, this totally just reminded me that I should use them more xD

    I’m jealous of fancy cameras as well, especially on IG. But then I realize how much work that probably is and I’m like eh, I’ll stick with my iPad 😛 I’m probably a disgrace to book lovers everywhere, I only have two bookmarks to my name haha.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      You totally should. I kinda like this colorful page spine. Haha, I try making my photos fancy but no luck. Guess, photography isn’t really for me.

  13. christine says:

    Oh, goodness, bookmarks xD I think I have too many of them; it’s kind of a problem, actually. But then it’s funny because I have a box-full of bookmarks, and then also I have this habit of just grabbing whatever’s nearest to me that can pass as a bookmark (money, receipts, flyers, and the like) to stick in my book instead.

    I actually don’t use post-it notes as often! But I think they’re so cute – they sell these little animal ones in a stationery store near my house that makes it look like there’s kittens and puppies peeking out from their pages. And they had these adorable chibi Haikyuu and KNB ones at one point.

    My photography skills are terrible xD I’m jealous of all those pretty pictures as well. *hides IG feed under the carpet*

    • Mitchii G. says:

      TBD keep on sending me bookmarks. I’m digital reader though so I hardly use them (plus, I read on one sitting so, there’s that!).

      Eeeep, me wants that Haikyuu ones! >.< Hides with you (my skills are zero!)

  14. Shannelle C. says:

    I only have a few handful of bookmarks, because I don’t use them a lot. I even won a whole pack of them, and I would only ever use them if I had the book for the bookmark. Otherwise, my standard bookmarks will serve nicely. I don’t do post-its either. It would be troublesome to keep buying them, and I just read continuously like a train. No post its in my future.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Me too, I find it really distracting to label pages I like. And for some reason, I can easily find the page so I deemed unnecessary.
