Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Book Related Problems I Have

Top Ten Tuesday!! Yaaaay! I didn’t miss it! HA!
As always, this meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is Ten Book Related Problems I Have.

b4597-toptentuesday1. Adopting books
This is my biggest problem. Especially in second-hand stores the books look at me..and what if no one will buy them and they’ll be thrown away? o.O I am defenseless!

2. Cover changes
It’s pretty covers, then they change it to ugly covers in the middle of the series… Or they just publish some parts. Sometimes I send angry emails to publishers because of this…

3. Space…too less of it
First my books were horizontally in my book shelf, now they are also vertically on top of the book shelf and I can’t fit my new books anywhere!

4. When character I like gets killed
Traumatizing, highly traumatizing!

5. They stop translating the books in the middle of series!
This also means they don’t publish them! I live in Finland and this has happened a couple of times. Especially when you have bought the series and last books are in English not Finnish…Of course, thanks to this, I started to read more books in English. Safer. Much safer.

6. TBR
My list is endless. And it’s too big. It’s impossible…I want to read so many good books.

7. Libraries
Amount of the books I borrow…makes me arms hurt when I carry them home. I pretend the library books are mine…and then never return them on time and it costs me quite much. I spend sometimes way too much time in library/ies.

8. Window shopping
When I don’t have money and when I have too much time (lies) Or real shopping…when I have extra money (lies).

9. TIME!
Time to read, time to review the books I love or hate or review them at all, tbr, reading too less, time to go through all the books I’ve read on Goodreads, time to blog about books, time to find new books, time to buy books, time to dream about books, time to find the edition of the book I like…BIG PROBLEM.

10. Don’t you ever interrupt while I’m reading a book
I can be a bit mean or grumpy.

Did you participate? What are your book related problems? :D

  1. I feel your pain! I go to used bookstores, thinking I’ll just browse. Then I come out with a big stack that I don’t have time to read or space on my shelves for. . . . And on the way home, I stop by the library to return my overdue stack, and somehow end up walking out with even more. It’s a real problem! :D

    1. I guess we need to learn not to go in when no money 👍 I need some t shirt, please don’t let me in, I’m moneyless book addict haha xD but yeah at least this is why I don’t need gym

  2. I love your list, and that Puss-in-Boots GIF is the best. Translating is definitely a problem – it also made me start reading more in English. These days, I only read books in my home language when that is the language they were originally written in, otherwise I’ll stick to English. Safer, as you say!

    1. TARDIS BOOKCASE! <3 YESS! Hahahaha
      Though I wonder if there would be Tardis bookcase, it's bigger on the inside, so would all the books just fall in or something o.O

  3. I wish space and time weren’t problems! It would be so much easier if I had lots of room for books and a lot of time to read them all! I hate it when one of my favorite characters dies. Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier!

  4. Time and space, every bookie’s nightmare. There is never enough time to read everything I want to or space to own all the pretty books I want to. I think you should seriously look into building a Tardis bookcase. The fact it is a bit impossible at the moment is irrelevant…

    I cannot imagine how annoying it is for a series to only be partially translated. I am glad this is not a problem I’ve had to face.

    1. Nothing is impossible…well except Tardis bookshelf 😂 yes it’s horrible, I completely understand that publishers can’t publish something that doesn’t sell…still so annoying

  5. Cover changes are so annoying, especially when you’re mid-way through collecting a series then they reintroduce the whole series and the covers are more beautiful than the ones you own.

    And character deaths? I’ve actually cried more than once over the deaths of characters. Why do authors do this to us?! :)

    Libraries are a big weakness of mine too. I just the fact you can walk in the library and walk out with a bag full of brand new books for free is amazing. I think I’ll always love a good visit to the library.

    1. They are! :DD Especially in that case when it’s prettier covers… -_-‘
      Have you noticed that now it seems to be a trend to kill one of the main charaters? Or maybe before I was young and naiive and didn’t read those parts too carefully.

  6. I didn’t even think of the grief I go through when a character is killed! It’s very difficult at times. I still don’t think I have ever fully overcome the end of Harry Potter. It’s traumatizing!

    1. Albus Dumbledore…I was so sad for many many weeks
      Ending of Harry Potter was frustrating for me maybe not as traumatizing as some other books from same genre

  7. This is definitely one of my favourite lists you’ve ever created! XD I agree on pretty much every point except #7 & 8. XD I don’t window shop, I don’t like to shop, so I just don’t do it. As to libraries, I just get angry with them for either 1: not having the books I want 2: not being able to get the books I want when I want them because someone ELSE has the book out at that time 3: i have to return them. Thus I’ve almost completely stopped going altogether. XD I know that’s a horrible thing, but it’s true. Because if not, then I pick up 900 books and never return them until they’re threatening a lawsuit on me or something lol

    1. Libraries are so problematic XD I moved a couple of years ago and my new local library doesn’t have any of the books they should have or should order, it sucks haha. Then some of the libraries in other hmm library networks have this ridiculous max.40 loans rule and if you borrow more then there’s a machine that makes this crazy noise… XD Somehow I still use libraries a lot though, maybe I should be more rebellious

      1. Oh my god… xDDD It makes a horrible noise at you???? What the hell! I would complain to management. :P

        Lol, I’m so glad you still use them! I really should them as well, but… welll… xD

        1. YES!! :D Basically it also apparently makes that noise when you turn 18 and you need to update age limit in your library card…it’s a silly system o.O I think the thing is that “normal” people borrow five books and then read them, return them and borrow new ones haha.

          1. Whaaaaa????? That’s crazy! I can imagine how embarassing that might be to some people too. Like shouting to the world, “Hey! This person here is finally LEGAL!”

            1. It was! XD I remember being with my father then and he gave me the don’t- tell-me-that-you-are-causing-that-noise-Anastasia-what-on-earth-did-you-do-look…Hahahaha :D Its hmmm another library region so I am not sure if I was supposed to go to personnel or something but still…so super embarrassing.
