You can’t put it down. You know you should. Your family tells you to. Your teachers tell you to. But. You. Just. Can’t. Because you are so addicted to “the book!!!”

Today’s Writing Prompt is dedicated to all of you who’ve been there. You’ve done crazy stuff. You’ve forgotten to eat. You’ve worn your brother or sister’s clothes by accident.  You’ve snuck “the book” into the bathroom. (Shhhh!). Gross but true.  You’ve ignored a call from your BFF because you were with “the book.”

You’ve done it. We want to hear it. Today’s Writing Prompt dares you to complete the following:

Have you ever been so addicted to a book that you . . . 

Come clean! Leave your confessions in the Comments below.

  6. treehousechocolate25

    I have been so addicted to a book that I would read it on the car ride to school, while listening to my fav. song, and I would read it during lunch and when I get home I would read it during dinner. I would take the book to the bathroom if I had too!!!!!!!!! That’s how addicted I have been to a book before! :-)

  7. The thing in the back of your fridge (AKA the unknown land of evil)

    One time I read Harry Potter for what seemed like five hours,and also I am 100%ADDICTED to the warriors book series by Erin hunter and also if you want to leave reality and live in a book then reply to this with the name of the book,the author who wrote the book and why you want to be in the book

  8. Vismaad

    Once I was so into a book I brought it everywhere I couldn’t put it down I even brought it to the Bathroom!

  9. Joey

    I would choose books but it would be a close call.I probably love books because they bring me into a awesome new world that is different and more interesting and exciting than our own(at least for my life)also my life is boring and not anything you find in a good book.

  10. Alethea M.

    I am so addicted to the Dork Dairies books because they teach you a lesson and they talk

    about cool stuff .

    I would say this book is a chocalate because I love love chocalate.

  11. Ally

    I’ve gotten a punishment for cleaning out the chicken coop because I didn’t put the book down at supper.

  12. Jada B.

    I’d most likely chose food over “the book” because it’s like better than being hungry and spend like hours getting off track cause your hungry

    Comment below if it’s

  13. Keira

    Why would parents groundANY kid for reading because isn’t it a good thing that your reading i have not had any experience with this stuff because i don’t get chores or home work BUT STILL!!!! Because kids who don’t read get rewarded kids that read normally get in trouble.

  14. LONEDOG7

    ME too in the shower, my dreams, and as i’m reading the book (i put down the book make up an ending than start reading again.

  17. Zy

    I liked reading the Warriors series, very addicting, Percy Jackson, I liked the 2nd book AND Wings of Fire. I misjudged that series.

  18. Anonymous

    Well, I’ve gone inside the bathroom with a book under my shirt with the guise of needing to use the restroom, but instead I read on the toilet (not actually doing any business!) and when I’m done, I flush the toilet so people don’t get suspicious. And if my parents asked me why I had been gone so long, all I replied with was, “It was a big one!”

  19. K

    Depends… Give me Hunger Games (age 12 and up), Divergent (grade 9 and up), Gallagher Girls (Teens), or Legend series (age 12 and up) and totally books! I so need to find a new series to read…I’ve already read each of those at least five times.

  20. K

    Allegiant (grade 9 and up) was awesome!!! I cried at the end…Then reread the series like three times! I hate when the series ends or the author hasn’t finished writing all of the books yet.
    I totally stayed up till 8am (was up all night) reading the books. So good. Especially love the books with suspense, action, and romance.

  43. midnightkitten133

  46. kaileigh

    I think harry potter and whatever every book will help a kid will help you become a better reader

  47. Pringle143

    I Would Choose Books Over Food Any Day (I Hate To Eat) I Love To Read, Reading Is My Favorite Thing To Do. Even If I Don’t Like A Book I Won’t Put It Down And Say “I’m Done I Hate This Book” I’ll finish reading it and then get a book I Want to read. My favorite class is reading class, I get money and spend it on books. I have to get books 6′ thick or I would finish them way to fast. 6 inch books last me about 2 days and I’m only 11. I LOVE BOOKS. :)

  48. Hanna

    Same here.Sometimes you’re so addicted to the book that you don’t realize the things going around you.At carpool,the 4th grade teachers tell us to not read books so we can pay attention to when they call our bus or your name so you can get in your car.

  49. Hanna

    I advise you to lock yourself in your room and keep reading.I do that for peace and quiet so I can read my book.

  50. Hanna

    If it was an exciting book,like Percy Jackson books,I would choose book over food.If it was a boring book,like books you have read a thousand times,I would choose food.So it kind of depends on how exciting or boring a book is.But usually I would choose book over food.Sometimes when its time to eat,you have to force me to stop reading so I can eat.

  51. lou

    i would either choose food or books? It would be easy in different situations for choices because…….
    If i was healthy and i have 3 meals each day and stuff and it was just a snack meal and someone offered me a snack or Raina Telemigher series. I would pick a book series!
    but if i was in a starving place i would take the snack…well probably a meal.

  52. daniel

    i would choose harry potter book 5 over food . best seires everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  53. katya

    I would choose a book over food. Books are my life. One time I almost got grounded from books because I wanted to read instead of doing chores.

  54. kamari

    I pick pizzaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. TotalFailure

  108. puppykitten57

    One time we finished a test in school, so we got to read until the class was over. I was reading the last harry potter book (Come on fangirls/boys you know you want to freak out over it!) and the bell rang. I was still sitting in my seat and stayed there until, like, five minutes after school was over when my teacher tapped me on the head and told me it was time to go!

  109. Addictor

    Mhm. So true…
    You can obviously tell..by my name ;)
    Okay I shall come clean and tell you all…
    I.Am.A.Percy Jackson lover.
    I can never put down those books.It is some forcefield that holds that suspended “The Book” in air. Not my hands. No my hands would be not moving either. I would stare that “The book” down. I’d even thrown it at a wall once. Then caressed it in my hands saying “Oh bookie poo I am sorry I threw you across my room. It was on purpose because Percy had disappeared and I am sad.”
    I even once had been reading the Haddix-The Missing series and jsut about died.
    I sat done reading one..and the other magically propped up in my hands, my eyelids almost shut because it was midnight. Nonstop conversion of Missing children.
    It is even hard to not tell anyone about the crazy things that happen in these books that just make them irresistible.
    Even if I am a fast reader. I shall pay no attention to anything but those cruel magically published books.
    Amazing how books just take people away…Sorry reading. I am now being taken away ;)

  110. pinkcupcake675

    I got so addicted to a book that I sat down for 3 hours and read 5 chapters. It was called DREAD LOCKS (age 12 and up)

    I am a BOOK LOVER.
    I LOVE books.
    I read lots of series. My favorite series is Warriors by Erin Hunter. When I read a book in that series I can’t put the book down.

    I loved Little Darlings so much my mom wouldn’t allow me to take it to school. Typical. She does that with every book I get hooked up on.

    I read this book and I was hooked to it. I tried to stayed up all night reading it by I can’t because I felt asleep. Also I did take the book with me when I go to the bathroom. Well, to tell you the truth I did that a lot of times.

    I have one book which is a novel and I can’t put down that book. The book I was reading is called Emily Windsnap and the Siren’s Secret. It was totally awesome and I can’t stop reading, in my opinion. I kept on thinking ” What happened next. Well, actually I have read tons of books and I can’t put hose books down either.

    I am such a bookworm. Any book that I see that seems interesting I just got to have it! This book series that I am addicted to is the “Wings of Fire” series. And no for the record, I’ve sneaked a book with me in the restroom.

    I have been so addicted to a book that if I had only 1 minute of free time in class I read it, I have been so addicted to a book that I answer every question with yes while I am reading, I have been so addicted to a book that when I am reading and it is loud around me, I zone all of the noise out
    Keep Calm and Just READ :)

  127. bookwormgirl45

    I can’t say that I’m addicted to one book in particular, I just can’t put down any and every book I read. Once I was reading a book while eating and I ended up dipping my food into a glass of water and I was like I should really stop reading now and focus on eating. It was really hilarious.

  128. sillyparakeet5

    I’ve been so into my book that:
    I’ve yelled at my family members for interrupting me while I was reading
    Stayed up late to read and finish
    and yes I have snuck books into the bathroom
    But it’s a price that a book worm must pay when they get addicted to a book. Lol :-)

    Been there.”The book” for me was Catching Fire. My BFF Breanna was talking to me on the phone but I wasn’t paying attention to a word she said because I was reading “the book”. I stayed up past 3:00am reading “the book”. When I finished “the book” I could barely do anything except wait for the next time we went to the library so I could get Mockingjay. Yup. I was defenitly addicted.

    P.S: I didn’t spell “defenitly” right, I know.

    that is me right there, except i’m homeschooled, so my teacher is my mom. i also have another problem. i doodle a LOT. i’ll be trying to do school, and suddenly, i have an uncontrollable urge to draw something, anything. i’ll doodle- just a little, mind you- and three minutes later, i have ‘the urge’ again. ANNOYING!!!

    I have been so addicted to many books! My most addicting are library books . Also I have also been addicted to computer games and t.v shows because they are so good. Also school too.

    I know people that do sneak magazines, books, even notebooks! I mean im not trying to be mean (because I do too sneak books in the bathroom) but people do it to relax I think.

    I’ve been caught reading late at night before. 1AM, 2AM, 3AM. Once I stayed up the ENTIRE NIGHT reading. There is something so addicting about a good story. When a book it okay, i’ll finish it. But when a book is good– and I mean really good– like, John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars” (Teen) good– there is nothing that will keep me from finishing it that week.
    When a book it that good… even danger won’t keep you from it. ** A WORD FOR THE WISE– DON’T TAKE GOOD BOOKS WITH YOU TO SCHOOL– YOU’LL GET CAUGHT READING THEM IN MATH CLASS AND YOU MIGHT GET HURT IF YOU DON’T LOOK WHERE YOU’RE GOING WHILE WALKING HOME.

  136. Athenabasilisk60

    I’ve been addicted to many books! In fact, I’ve been addicted to so many, I can’t name them all! My most addicting are “The Princess Diaries,” by Meg Cabot, “Flipped,” by Wendelin Van Draanen, and the “Harry Potter” series by J. K. Rowling! I am a complete bookworm! But, my favorite books that I can never put down are the ones that I write myself!

    I have been so addicted to a book I forgot to do my chores for a solid week. I spent all my time reading!

    I have stayed up till 1 or 2 am while reading a lot of books. I’m more of a series guy. Harry Potter, of course, was my first series. Then Percy Jackson and then The 39 Clues. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was the reason I got glasses in 4th grade. And I have snuck more than one book in the bathroom.
