Signs You Might Be a Literature Nerd

You go to Spain, or to New York City, and your primary destinations are mostly bookstores. The events you attend in Madrid are presentaciones de libros.

It might have been a week or two since you last turned on the tv.

Piles of books accumulate mysteriously in piles in every room in the house, in the car. Every room but the kitchen and bathroom have bookshelves.

You own 20 books by an author that you don't actually like that much.

You have 40 books checked out from the library at any given moment.

You've read novels in languages you don't fully understand.

You've written a few books on literature yourself. You have an unpublished novel or book of poems in your drawer, maybe a translation or three.

Jonathan, do you really have an unpublished novel in your drawer?

No, but I have a few ideas for novels floating around my head.
