As a lifelong bookworm, I’ve experienced countless moments of joy while reading. From the time I was a little girl, I have always loved reading. Here’s why books are so important to me and how they’ve shaped my life.

I’ve always been a bit of a bookworm. As a child, I was never without a book in my hand, and I would often be caught reading late into the night with a flashlight under the covers. I loved getting lost in other worlds and imagining myself as the characters in the stories. Even now, as an adult, I still find that books are one of my greatest sources of joy. I can always count on them to transport me to another place, to make me laugh or cry, and to teach me something new. I’m so grateful that reading has always been such an important part of my life. It’s something that I cherish dearly and will always hold close to my heart.

I think the most important in my reading life was when I fully embraced my inner bookworm and proudly exclaimed to the world, “I love books!”

I was a total bookworm as a kid. Shocking. I know. When I was young, my parents would read to me every night before bed. I would beg for just one more chapter. I have always loved books, and this was a special time for me to wind down and enjoy a good story. My parents instilled in me a love of books and reading, and I’m so grateful for that. I can’t imagine my life without books. As I got older, I started reading on my own, and I would often stay up late into the night lost in a book. I would go to the library and check out armfuls of them, then sit in my room and read for hours. I even started reading adult books when I was just in middle school My parents would joke that I was a bookworm, but I didn’t mind. I loved being surrounded by books and spending hours reading. My friends would make fun of me for being a nerd. But I didn’t care – I loved books. People would tell me that I was missing out on life by reading so much, but I just couldn’t help myself. Books were my passion and still are to this day. Even now, as an adult, I still make time for reading every day. It’s one of my favorite ways to relax and escape from the world. Books will always hold a special place in my heart.

I’m not just a casual reader either – I’m a full blown book lover. Bookish you may say. I devour books, both fiction and nonfiction. I’m always looking for new titles to add to my ever-growing pile of books to read.

I’m a bookworm. I’ve always been a bit of a bookworm. Even as a kid, I would usually have my nose stuck in a book, much to the dismay of my parents who were forever telling me to “put that book down and go outside!” As I’ve gotten older, my love for books has only grown stronger. These days, I try to read at least one book a week, even if it’s just for pleasure. I’m always on the lookout for new titles to add to my ever-growing collection, and I’m never happier than when I’m curled up with a good book. Some people might say that I’m a little too bookish, but I just can’t help it – I’m a Bookworm through and through!

I love books. I love the way they smell. I love the way they feel. I love getting lost in a good story. Of course, being a bookworm has its drawbacks. People often assume that I’m introverted or shy because I like to read. And they’re not wrong. Books are my refuge, my happy place. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like people. I do. I really do. I just prefer talking about books than anything else. Book nerds unite!

Bookworms are a special breed. We’re the ones you’ll find with our noses buried in a book, even if it’s just for pleasure. To us, books are more than just words on a page. They’re gateways into other worlds, and we can’t get enough of them. Bookish people have always been my favorite kind of people. They’re the ones who are always up for a good discussion about their latest read, and they’re usually more than happy to recommend a book or two (or ten). Book lovers know that there’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book, and they’re always on the lookout for their next great read. Book nerds and book addicts, we’re all in this together. We love the smell of books, the feel of them, the way they look on our shelves. We Bookworms get giddy when we find a new bookish author or genre to devour. Our reading habits are insatiable. Bookshops and libraries are our happy places. Book nerds like us live, breathe and dream books. Reading is an escape for us, a way to visit new worlds without ever having to leave our armchairs. It’s a form of self-care, a source of comfort and an unending source of pleasure. To us, books are Magic with a capital M. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

So am I a bookworm? You bet your bottom dollar I am. And I love it. I’m sure many of you can relate to my love of books. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that a good number of you are bookworms yourselves. And if that’s the case, I have a question for you: what’s your favorite book? Leave your answer in the comments below. I’m always looking for new recommendations!

Here’s a little bookworm bookmark for you.

  1. I’m definitely a bookworm, too! My parents were never too sure of whether to encourage or discourage it because, on one hand, I wasn’t getting into trouble, but, on the other, I spent more time with fictional people than facing the world. There are so many books I love and adore, but my favorite is actually a children’s book I’ve loved for almost 30 years. Miss Rumphius doesn’t just have beautiful flowers and pictures, but also reminds me every day to make the world beautiful.
