I will thank the Lord with all my heart as I meet with his godly people. How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Psalm 111:1-2 NLT

You Might Be a Reader if...

I always like reading things like You might be a redneck if…And that got me to thinking. I came up with this one:

You might be a reader if…

  • You let the biscuits burn because you have to read one more page…
  • You stay up until 2 am to read and see who did it…
  • You spend more for books than you do clothes…
  • Your house goes undusted while you read one more chapter…
  • You tell your child yes, you can have the chocolate cookies so he will leave you alone and let you finish the book…
  • You only have five friends and their names are Scarlett, Rhett, Melanie, Katniss, or Harry.
  • If your parents punished you when you were a child by taking your books away.
  • You go to the grocery store for milk and come home with another book.
  • The library or local bookstore (or both) are on speed dial.
  • Your TBR stack is taller than your son or daughter.
  • You name your children after your favorite hero or heroine.

Now it's your turn. What are some ways you know you are a reader?

I asked God to teach me patience and He gave me a book to write


  1. You might be a reader if you sneak a book into a five-star restaurant to which you've taken a date, so you can read it while she's in the ladies' room.

    Yes, in fact that WAS a first and last date. Why?


  2. You talked about writing this, so glad you did. Fun. Both of my sons names start w/ A. after A. W. Tozer, pastor & writer. Some book characters seem so real, I think we sometimes learn much from them, just like we do living friends, and they certainly become great mutual discussion points. THANKS, Pat.

  3. Come to think of it, my youngest baby granddtr.'s middle name is Nokomis, from Longfellow's poem, Hiawatha. I guess that counts!

  4. It does, Dee! No way that child can be anything but a reader.

  5. if you have to keep replacing your library card with a new one because it keeps fading from constant use : )

  6. You're a reader if you are will to read even the fine print on labels just so you can be reading something!

  7. You're a reader if you've ever read with a light under the covers so as to not wake someone else in the room!

  8. Love these, Teri! I remember sitting at the table reading the back of the cereal box!
