Confessions of a Bibliophile

When I first made this blog, it was titled ‘Confessions of a Bibliophile.’ I titled it that because I wanted it to sound like Confessions of a Shopaholic or Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen which are both movies I love. However, I didn’t really confess…anything? At all. Ever. xD Though I have a new title now, I thought it would be interesting to do a post confessing things I have never admitted before (related to being a bibliophile of course!)Β I couldn’t think of anything to post and this was the first thing I thought of. Quality content always, am I right?

Confessions of a Bibliophile

#1

I almost cried when a friend who borrowed my copy of Prisoner of Azkaban tore a bit of the cover.

#2

Sometimes, I act like I’ve read a book even though I have no clue what it’s about.

#3

I wrote my first “book” when I was 7. It was written, illustrated and published by moi. It was titled ‘Adventures of Carly, Marlee and Darcy’ (I was very creative with the names.) I tried to convince my neighbour to buy it for ten rupees.

#4

For a long time, I used to use long words that I found in books while talking to people in school.Β Basically, I was a pretentious little shit.

#5

Once, when I couldn’t think of what to write for a story writing assignment, I got “inspired” by a book that I had read (aka wrote the story in my own words). My teacher loved it. But I felt kind of guilty so I told her it wasn’t original. She was really, really disappointed. :/

#6

I absolutely HATE it when someone borrows a book for a very long time, returns it only after I ask for it a million times and say “I didn’t get the time to read it” when they return it after like 28329 years. :]

#7

When I was 8, my best friend and I decided to make our bookshelves into libraries because together, we had a lot of books. We thought it would be a great way to make money and even had a bunch of “business” meetings. Nobody wanted a membership. :/

#8

In fourth grade, a story I wrote came out in the school newsletter. For a month, I introduced myself as a journalist. *facepalm*

#9

My friend and I created a magazine in the 3rd grade highlighting our ‘problems’ as 8 year olds and how we could fix them. We both got certificates for it xD


So that’s all of my ‘confessions.’ Nothing scandalous at all haha πŸ˜› All you found out is that I was an ambitious 8 year old!

I’m sorry for sort of disappearing for a bit. My phone stopped working this week and I had so many of my drafts and blog post ideas saved on it but they weren’t backed up. On top of that, my laptop had gone for servicing so I couldn’t really write anything. :/ Now my laptop’s back and I’m going to remember all the things on my ‘blog post’ list and this time back it up!!!

Hope you’re having a lovely week ❀

  1. #4, your are definitely not alone on that one, I clearly was also a pretentious little shit πŸ™‚
    #5 I actually did something very similar, I wrote a creative writing essay that I was super proud of and got an A for , only to realise a while later that it was pretty much a combination of the two books I was writing at the time.

    1. I guess we get so engrossed in the stories that we subconsciously (or in my case, consciously) incorporate them into our own writing. πŸ™‚
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I tried #7 myself as a kid, and while nobody went for it, I had a wonderful time creating all the library cards and cataloging information. πŸ˜›
    For #5, I think if I’d been your teacher I’d have given you two awards: one for creative thinking, and one for confessing!

    1. I’m quite sure i still have my excel sheets full of information about all my books haha xD
      That’s sweet but I think it still counts as plagiarism. πŸ˜›

    1. Ahaha that’s so cute! :”) I’ve had so many bad experiences with lending out books that I’ve stopped letting people borrow my books – no question of a library anymore πŸ˜›

  3. I love that you and your friend made a library! lol. I have so many books and live in a small subdivision that I still wonder if I could make money off of lending my books, but then I realize I hate lending my books out. And totally on #1 … I bought a new paperback the other day and a hardcover and the hardcover fell against the paperback and bent the cover a bit. I’m still sad about it!

    1. To lend books or not to lend books? The dilemma πŸ˜› I’ve stopped lending books too, except maybe to a few close friends.
      I absolutely hate when paperbacks get bent! I know it doesn’t affect the content of the book at all but it still makes me sad πŸ˜›

  4. I can sooo relate to number 1 and 6!! It is simply so irritating when someone has your book for ages and they you practically have to persuade them to return it back to you and then they say that!! Anyway, loved this! ❀
