Can you be addicted to reading? Am I addicted to reading YA?

How do you decide if you’re addicted to something or not?

Well let’s start with a definition for addiction… I found one that says: “The condition of being habitually or compulsively occupied with or involved in something”.

So let’s work through it:

  • I start a good book and it’s with me until I finish it
  • I go visit the Library and always come home with at least another 5-6 books
  • I go walking through Chapters and always come home with 1 or 2 new books
  • I check my Blog and the Blogs I follow at least once a day and maybe twice a day now to see what new titles that I’d like to read – that feeds my Chapters’ trip

I’m afraid that I can match the four points I’ve listed above with that definition of addiction I found. So – I’ll concede and say YES I believe I AM indeed addicted to reading YA materials. I habitually obtain new YA books, whether from a library or store, I am preoccupied with many of the books I read, and I find the more I read the more I want, almost need, to get involved.

I know I said I’d update my polls every week on a Friday, but I can’t resist – I’d like to know how many of you feel the same way and are willing to admit that you too are addicted to reading.
