Reading isn’t all butterflies and rainbows. We don’t just sit around and sip tea while we bury our noses in a great book (although we sure love doing that), we have struggles too! Today I’m going to give you the five common struggles of a bookworm everyone can relate to.
Before blogging on Books Keep Me Sane I was on Tumblr for four years.
