11 Struggles Only Book Lovers Will Understand

The life of a book lover isn’t always as simple as falling in love with your best friend, taking down the evil government, and they all live happily ever after.

It can be a cruel world out there!  If you relate to any of the struggles below, we’re with you. The struggle is real. Too too real.

1. When you lend your favorite book to a friend and they never return it.

No, no, I definitely never wanted that back.
