My Inner Bookworm

I get emails with book deals several times per day, and being a complete book addict I cannot leave them unopened. I almost feel anxious if I don't read them, thinking that I will definitely miss out on a great book, a great story, a life changing novel. I know I am not alone in this way of life, as countless members of online book clubs keep reassuring me with their 'book post' hashtags and carefully posed and filtered 'book pics'. 

Sometimes I think I should just unsubscribe and let go, and for whatever my next read may be to find me instead. As if it were fate, or meant to be. But my inner bookworm refuses. She is a force to be reckoned with and has lead me down many incredible paths, introduced me to some unmissable characters and shaped my life beyond measure. So for that, I obey her every wish. She is real, she is formidable. She is my childhood and my best friend. 

She is me.
