Top Ten Tuesday #12: Top 10 Bookish Problems I Have

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

So today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is my top 10 Bookish Problems that I Have!

So, here's my top 10 Bookish Problems that I have (in no particular order).

1.  Not being able to read all the books on my "To Be Read" shelf:  I have a lot of books on my TBR shelf and yet, even though I'm trying to read as many books as I can this year from my TBR shelf, I'm still far behind in reading up on all of the books on my TBR shelf because I wait so many years to actually pick up a book that was recommended to me since I'm usually lazy when it comes to reading books on time.

2.  Trying to find books that are not in a series:  It seems that nowadays whenever I want to pick up a young adult novel or a romance novel, they are in a series and that's problematic for me because either my library doesn't have all the books in the series or I have to pay a fortune just to get the entire series for myself.

3.  Not being able to read several books at one time:  This was a problem I had for years now and even though I can easily read three to four picture books or graphic novels at one time, I can't seem to read several chapter books at one time since I get worried about having to remember exactly what I read in one book and then pick up another book to read.  I would have probably been up to 50 books by now if I can just conquer this problem.

4.  Having a hard time finding cheap prices for books: The only books I can find cheap prices for are books that have been used and while I'm okay with that for the most part, I would like to find cheaper prices of newer books so I could catch up with the book crowd whenever a new book is released.

5. Still haven't used an E-book: I mostly read books as they are, but I have been dying to try out the E-books and yet, I never find the strength to actually try out an e-book and see if they would broaden my reading experience more.

6.  Not being able to read all my library books: I usually get a ton of books from the library and yet, I can never finish all of the books I've brought from the library since there's so many of them and I have trouble deciding on which book I want to read first or last.

7.  Staying Up late to finish a book: I've had this problem many times where I would stay up late just to finish one book, even though I have to work in the mornings.

8.  Waiting for years for the sequel to come out:  This is a big pet peeve of mine where I would read this awesome book and I want to read more from the series, but then I realize that the sequel won't be out for another few years and I just have to wait impatiently for the sequel to come out!

9.  Can't find the books I want: Sometimes there's a book that I really want and I want to go to the bookstore or to the library to get that book.  But then, they ended up not having that book and I have to go all around the internet just to find the books I really want (that's how I found most of the Rabbit Ears series since the bookstores don't have them and the library doesn't have the whole series on hand).

10.  Falling Asleep while reading: This happens to me quite often as I pick up a really good book and just as I get to an interesting part, I suddenly feel sleepy and I fall asleep during the middle of the book!

So, what bookish problems do you have? Please feel free to comment below!

  1. Staying up late is a problem for me too! I stay up to read but then I'm exhausted the next day. Great list.

  2. I agree with so many on this list. So many books, so little time and money. Love your book blog! Check out mine?

  4. You really need to try out ebooks. Although it is nice to have a feel of the bulky pages, you also have so many pros!
