I am married to a nerd. But unfortunately for me, not a book nerd. My husband loves all things science. So he will read, if it’s science articles. I’ve recently bought him comic books that he will read when he gets bored. But that is the extent of his bookish qualities. Now, does that mean we don’t have anything to talk about? Absolutely not. We talk about lots of stuff. And ironically, he teaches me a lot about science. However, I know that there are times where he just wants me to shut the hell up. So, since I think this is hysterical. I’ve come up with a list of things my husband is either sick of or sick of hearing. 🙂
Also, this post was inspired by Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner
“I didn’t spend a lot! I Promise!”
Every time I go to the book store (usually Half Price Books) I end up buying piles of books to add to my insane collection at home. And every time, Joe is so concerned with how much I spent on books.
“Just let me finish this chapter and we can go!”
I usually end up bringing a book with me no matter where I go. “Oh, we’re gonna go drink at a friends house and play games? Okay, let me just make sure I have a book and my kindle packed, too!” Is what goes on in my brain…
“Aren’t these so pretty?!”
A recent case is when I bought A Court of Mist and Fury and I immediately grabbed ACOTAR and turned to my husband and was like, “LOOK AT THE PRETTIES! Which cover do you think is prettier?” (in case you wanted to know he said A Court of Mist and Fury’s cover is better)
“Oooh, that’s based off a book! I need it!”
So, every time we see a trailer for a movie or TV show and it’s based off of a book, I immediately turn to him and say, “I need that book” and then “We’re gonna watch that!” Needless to say, I usually am the one who watches and he does something else.
“My books NEED a HOME!”
I currently have 3 bookcases dedicated to my books and those are double or triple stacked. It’s in the works of Joe building me shelves, but we have so many other things to do around the house that this project keeps getting pushed back. But every single time I get more books (which is a lot, I have a problem) I tell him that my books need a home! (In fact, I told him before I moved in with him over 2 years ago, that my books were coming with me).
“BOOKSTORE!! Let’s go!”
Every time we’re out and about and I see a bookstore, I immediately head in that direction. I think he’s just given up by now. Poor Joe.
“OMG and then he did this and that!”
I sometimes talk to Joe about fictional characters as if it were truly happening to my life. I think at this point he ignores me half of the time. I do this about TV shows too.
**Sniffs book** Looks at Joe, “Yes, that just happened.” **Joe shakes his head**
I don’t think I need any explanation as to sniffing a book. 😀
Let’s Talk About It
Do you do any of these? Do you do anything else, that maybe I forgot to mention?
