writing_prompt_bookBook Nerd and Proud!

You’d rather finish your book than watch TV. You drop food on your book because reading and eating dinner at the same time is challenging (my sincere apologies to the Pleasant Hills Public Library!). Your mom tells you you’re going to Disney World, but you just look up from your book and say . . . “Huh?” Admit it – you’re a book nerd, and proud of it!

Today’s Writing Prompt is for you. Finish this sentence. . .

booknerd We can’t wait to hear what you guys say in the Comments below! Be proud and read ON!

    Im a book nerd because i love books. I have a book case full of books and i dont read the book only once. Every book on my book shelf has been read at least five times. I love mythology books especially. Next in line is romance novels although most of them don’t appeal to me. Finally its fiction stories. Especially if its about a princess. My quote is “once a kid always a kid”

    Every book makes me like like a nerd or a dork. like Nikki Maxell says in Dork Diaries, ” Let your inner dork shine through.”

    You can tell you’re a book a bookworm when kids in your class call you an open dictionary, kids are always asking you for help in classwork, and you’ve read majority of the books in your teacher’s classroom library. And also you had a library in your house.

    when you can’t go to sleep unless you know how the story ends
    when you know longer and harder words than your friends
    when you know what book is going to end even though its not out yet at your bookstore or library
    when you bring a book into the washroom and read while you do your business

    You know you’re a book nerd when you lose touch with reality and imagination fills your senses as the pages and words become one with your life in which you cannot feel or think to return to the real. You become infatuated with the existence of being an imaginary character that is yourself – to the point wherein you realize – you are a book nerd & you may never return to the real world of this so called ‘life’.

    You know you are a book nerd when you get upset when a book ends, stay up to all hours to finish a book, read like there is no tomorrow, your parents get mad because you read all the time, read instead of eating dinner, when someone calls you a “nerd” because you can’t put a book down, and a million other reasons! :)

    You do ANYTHING (anything at all) to read every second of your life, or at least keep track of books each day, when they’re coming out, how you’re going to get enough money to get those books, and when your mom is asking what you want for dinner, you have exactly NO IDEA what’s she’s saying, and just say yes not knowing what you’re talking about in her face while you have your nose in a book.

    I’m a BOOK NERD!! And I’m really proud of being obsessed with it. I read The Hunger Games trilogy in less than three days and I’m obsessed with Harry Potter. I know I’m book nerd, when I realize my best friend is a book, when I prefer books, instead of TV or video games or when I wait to do something else right after a finish a page and it becomes a whole chapter or the whole book.

    Yes it happens to everyone. When you are refusing to do anything or to eat anything. Like you rather read than watch television or you rather read than eat food. I do that sometimes. When the book so good that you can’t do anything else but read.

    You know when your a book nerd when you read a new book you never heard of before, loved it, and wished you had more books just like it! You don’t want to get out of the book. You just keep reading! When I first read a How I Survived Middle School book I could not stop reading it!

    You know you are a book nerd when you get an “A+” in reading, say no to getting a bunch of money because you are reading your newly finished, self written book, when you have a HUGE collection of bookmarks and books that you’ve read more than twice, and, when you can’t sleep surrounded by books!

    You plan ahead when you’re going to read. You judge your friends by what they read. You generally have a pile of unread books, possibly beside the bed, and you buy them at a faster rate than you can read them. You’re reading this and thinking you could actually be reading a good book instead………
