WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

when you’re forced to attend some kind of social event when all you really 
want is to be at home with a book.*

But then the poor chap would have to decide which fireplace at Pemberly to curl up in front of with his book. Decisions, decisions...

THIS.

Although usually, I keep a book in my purse. So I just have to figure out how to slink off to some secluded corner.

Normally I would agree but I ain't passing up a chance to show my dancing skills.

They are many. Sometimes I don't even need music.

Karen @ Scobberlotch said...

Oh yes, how I can relate. :)

Regina said...

This is so funny because there are so many times that I wish that I were reading instead of doing what I am obligated to do on certain days. :)

Jenna Cooper said...

Pretty much my life summed up in this post.

Thanks for posting. Believe it or not, it makes me feel better knowing I am not alone.

Been there!

I guess you could take Krispy's tip, and hide in the bathroom with a book... As long as there's more than one bathroom.

I just discovered the Kindle app. for my smart phone. It's my crutch for social yuckiness.

There you go--one of the reasons Mr. Darcy didn't put on his best face was he was a classic introvert according to his Meyers-Briggs testing! Thanks, the clip is a perfect choice.

I saw a documentary on Dr. Suess that said his wife would often find him missing at parties and go off and find him in someone’s library. She said one time she found him having fun autographing books with “Hemingway.”

And recently read this in an interview with Daniel Radcliffe:

He says he avoids clubs and parties -”It’s horrible. It’s just horrendous. Noise. Ridiculous, rubbish.”

For me the worse is when you start a book, and it's a real page-turner and then you have to go somewhere. And the whole time you're just thinking "I wonder what happens next."
