I think the title of this post is pretty obvious, but this post is a discussion about the frustration of not being able to buy a book. Now, I have plenty of different reasons for not being able to buy books, and I’m pretty sure many other booknerds can relate. Here are ones that I can think of right now:
- Having no money for buying books–your broke. This is a major problem for me because I am not an adult, and I don’t have a job. My parents won’t let me babysit and stuff, and the only money I do have is from my monthly allowance (which is only 20$) and holiday money, which I only get yearly and I don’t want to spend it. 😦
- My parents won’t take me to the bookstore or Target or somewhere where books are sold. This is probably what I am most annoyed by. Why? Even if I have the money to buy books, I can’t. I can’t, because I CAN’T DRIVE. For example, for the past two weeks, I’ve literally been begging my mom to take me to a bookstore, but no. Its not working, and I feel like whining because I JUST WANT MY BOOKS, OK? Someone please convince her. PLEASE
- My mom won’t let me buy books. And you know what? I’m going to send the link of this blog post to my mom so that she can read this and see that my annoyance is real. Although I have my money, and my mom says I can use my allowance in any way, after I buy it, or some time, my mom makes the traditional discussion: “You shouldn’t spend money on books you’re only gonna read once, you should read the classics, blah blah blah.” But the things, I could be spending my money on some other things, and it just drives me crazy. So mom, if you’re reading this after I send it to you, PLEASE STOP doing this. Its not going to stop me from buying these books, and its not going to make me read classics. It just makes me more annoyed, and I feel rebellious when I buy books–since you give me the satisfaction of doing something I’m not allowed. See, I’m so desperate I’m posting this on my blog.
And I’m so desperate I had to put a “please” gif.
Of course, there are countless more reasons but these are, in my opinion, the most annoying ones. Does this happen to all of you? (especially ones who aren’t adults) Please let me know because I NEED someone to share my pain. (Yes, mom-if-you-are-reading-this I am in pain)
