    You are at the bookstore or library and there are too many books. You want to buy or check out all of them.

    Book people probs:
    1) Somebody is trying really hard to have a conversation with you and you don’t know it because your are focused completely in your book.
    2) You are reading at school and you don’t hear your teacher give instructions because you are so engrossed in your book.

    1. That’s never happened. I am a writer too, so I would’ve brought a notebook or my diary. But if I was really close to the end, I’d bring another book.
    2. I’d ask, no, BEG my Mom to take me to the bookstore after school.
    3. I wouldn’t talk to my mother until she apoligized. But knowing my mother, she’d never do that.
