Just for fun, I’m creating four posts about “bookworms” in September:
“Top 5 Ways to Catch a Bookworm”
“Top 5 Bookworm Problems”
“Top 5 Reasons to be With a Bookworm” (today’s post)
“Top 5 Things a Bookworm Would Never Do”
Top 5 Reasons To Be With a Bookworm
I’m linking up today with Meeghan at Meeghan Reads for Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Bookworm Problems.
For me, being with a bookworm is never a “problem.” It’s always a joy. However, if you were a nonreader, I can see how being with a bookworm might be a problem.

A Bookworm Has Book Recommendations
My greatest delight is thinking of the perfect book for you, your spouse, or your mom, or your best friend, or….you get the idea! I love to match books with their readers. Need a book recommendation? Ask a bookworm!
Book People Are the Best People
- Book People are well-read on a variety of topics
- Reading encourages compassion, tolerance, thoughtfulness, and understanding
- They tend to be interesting conversationalists
- Book People can entertain themselves anywhere and are never bored
- Avid readers usually read a great deal of historical fiction (if history is your interest, you might find interesting conversation)
- Readers usually have good imaginations
How about you? Do you have a bookworm in your life? What do you love about her?
Bookworms Have Opinions About Popular or Hyped Books
Ask a bookworm about the current bestseller and I imagine she has an opinion!
#4 Bookworms are Easy to Buy Gifts For
Any bookstore will have an assortment of gifts for bookworms!
Bookworms are Never Bored
For instance, your bookworm friend drives you to the doctor and it’s a long wait. No problem for a bookworm who always carries a book (physical or digital) with her. A long drive ahead? No worries for a bookworm who always has an audio book recommendation. A thirty minute wait in the school pickup line or an hour at soccer practice? A bookworm’s delight! You are with a person who has an errand……a bookworm is happy to sit in the car and read! Saturday morning with nothing to do? A bookworm might go to her local bagel shop and read while she munches on a whole grain bagel with strawberry cream cheese. Bookworms are so easy to entertain!
QOTD: Do you have a bookworm in your life? What is one of your reasons to be with a bookworm?
Happy Reading Bookworms!

I’m really enjoying your Bookworm series. I fit every one of those descriptions.
Lol! 😂 we’re certainly easily identified! Thanks for commenting!
This is such a wonderful list. I agree with all of this. I especially like Book People Are the Best People
Thanks Wendy! 🙌💖
I’m also adding that book people know a lot of trivia, especially those of us that read historical fiction. We’re popular during game nights!
Oh that’s a good one, Adrienne! 🙌💖
I’m definitely in agreement with number 5. It astonishes me the number of people I see waiting in train stations/hospitals/dentists etc that have nothing with them to read.
Right?! How do they do it?
No idea. I’ve seen people take international flights too without even a newspaper to read.
I definitely agree with the part about easy to buy gifts for! I never know what to get non-bookworms, but books are easy!
I have two friends that I would classify as bookworms. We share books, recommend them to each other and talk about what we are reading. Wonderful to share my love of books with friends. I am loving this series, Carol.
Thanks Carla! I have a couple of friends that are true bookworms….my other friends tolerate me!

I am a bookworm
So true- bookworms have wonderful imaginations. I have a wild imagination- had that since I was a kid. One of the things I love about being a bookworm is connecting and falling in love with characters
How do we have room in our brain for all these beloved characters?! Thanks for sharing!
In my case, I somehow have room for BOTH already created character and new characters. As in, I actually have created some one my own. Having room of both for them is hard to think about at times.
Sounds fun though! You’re never at a loss for entertainment!
