Book Drunk

Book Drunk:the feeling one gets after reading a boat load of amazing books.

Yeah, I'm there.

Between the kindle and my bookshelves I've become book drunk. I love the amount of books I run across and have the ability to read. The love and care that went into each and every book.

Today I'm celebrating.

All the books I've been able to read over the past year and a half. The authors that got me back into reading. All the signings I've been blessed to go to, the authors I've gotten to hear stories from. How everyone got their start. The bloggers who work their hearts out in all their posts and WiP's.

What are you celebrating today?

I'm celebrating that I'm 3/4 done with proofreading. :D

Becky Taylor said...

I need to hang out here more often. Personally, I'm in the midst of being just the tiniest bit overwhelmed.

But, as I always say--This too shall pass.

Are you loving your Kindle?!

Jess said...

Just curious--what would a Book Hangover look like :) It would be fun if you let us know if your cool Book Drunk turns into a killer hangover, and what exactly that looks like!

Jacqueline Howett said...

Yes- it's lots of fun. Glad you have the time to also be a reader of so many books and ebooks. I'm happy to be living in Florida where I shall get some time at the beach today...

and do some editing on my second novel, titled Cass. Have a great day.

Book Drunk--LOVE that! I am so there.

Joanne said...

I love your celebration and think I'll join in celebrating the whole book process, from writing to reading. And the warmer, sunny day too :)

Angela Felsted said...

This is great, calling yourself book drunk. Very cute. I'm celebrating Demonglass because I just finished reading it. I've still got scenes and characters swirling around in my head. Until that dissipates I'll wait on picking up my next book.

Hannah Kincade said...

You will have to visit my blog later to find out... :P

Elena Solodow said...

I know how you feel! I just finished reading Delirium and then started Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly and I am amazed by both.

Katie Mills said...

I've been filling my writing void with reading these last few weeks too. There's nothing like it!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I'm celebrating another great YA novel I'm reading (especially since I was torn between reading it and a sexy romantic suspense). :D

Matthew MacNish said...

It's funny that you made this term up, because I have a similar one: Drunkbooking. It's like drunk dialing but instead of calling someone, you're facebooking.

What fun!

Today is a simple celebration, I finally broke yesterday's fever. UGH, hate being sick. SO glad your having that awesome moment of being in love with the world through books and blogs and authors. It's a great feeling :)

I'm aware that blogger is having a problem posting comments!!! So If you see yourself a dozen times don't feel foolish! I hate when these things happen!

Becky Taylor said...

Blouger is also not allowing me to link my posts to FB!

I'm sorry I called you a blouger blogger. I'm just really frustrated with you right now ;)

On the plus side, Jen you could end up with like a million comments by the end of the day.

Melissa said...

Today, I am celebrating having AWESOME friends. (Like you, my sparkly little ray of sunshine, who never fails to bring the light into my life - no matter what the weather is doing!)

Being Book Drunk ROCKS!!!! I wish I could join you in your sloshiness! But stupid school!

Laura Marcella said...

DONUTS! There's a small family-owned bakery near my husband's work that makes the most delicious homemade donuts on Fat Tuesday (aka: Mardi Gras) every year. So my husband always buys a bunch! I had one this morning and it was heavenly!

I'm always celebrating books, too!

Nicole Zoltack said...

Considering that this is Read an EBook Week - I'm celebrating ebooks!

E. Elle said...

I'm celebrating getting to go home early today. :) But literature related... I'm celebrating the near-completion of my second novel. (Finally. Full celebration begins [hopefully] Sunday.)

Keriann Greaney Martin said...

I'm celebrating actually writing a well thought-out blog post in advance (scheduled to post tomorrow), AND adding 400 words to my WiP in one night. Tonight I go on a research mission. Should be fun! I'm feeling very writer-y lately :).

li said...

I'm celebrating the fact that I've gone 3 months without a cold. (Fingers crossed). And I'm close to finishing Anna Karenina, which I've been meaning to read for...let's just say many, many moons. :)

Tracey Neithercott said...

That's a great way to put it. I'm celebrating the fact that I'm going to fix a problem in the first few pages of my ms tonight. (At least that's what I'm telling myself right now.)

Indigo said...

I'll be celebrating once my laptop battery arrives from Fed-Ex. Until then my computer is moving like sludge s l o w as d i r t. (Hugs)Indigo

Lynda R Young said...

I'm book tipsy at the moment..a few more dedicated reading hours and I'll reach book drunk :)

Laura said...

celebrating taking my heels off after 9 hours on my feet in them at work... pen, notebook, pub! yay!!!

Michelle in a shell said...

Love the idea of being "book-drunk" and can totally relate. My s/o works in a bookstore so he often brings home piles of books to drool over!

Lenny Lee* said...

...hugs from lenny

Jennifer Hillier said...

I'm celebrating a new opening to the new WIP. It's much, much tighter.

Ah, book drunk. So much healthier than being regular drunk (although both can be equally... uh, fun).

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's cool! And define "boat-load."

Jennie Bailey said...

I am celebrating air conditioning! And a day off since I'm under the weather (again). A boat load of groceries from Trader Joe's. A snoring dog. And the books that are on their way here from barnesandnoble.com!

Guinevere said...

I feel that way about books a lot too! there are so many amazing books out there to read and when I've read a bunch in a row, it just makes me feel so happy with the world and energized.

caterpillar said...

Celebrating having a friend I can be myself with....

Jemi Fraser said...

Book drunk is a perfect expression!!

I'm celebrating my family - they really are great. Things have been a little crazy chaotic lately and they've really stepped up. :)

Lynn said...

I'm celebrating being here and able to spend time visiting blogs today. I think I need to go on a bender and get book drunk myself!

randine said...

I love the saying "book drunk"!!
It's so perfect for me right now, since I just got myself a Kindle and I'm so excited about it I could just about pee myself.

I never thought that I would go Kindle, but I've got to say that I'm kind of loving it.

Meredith said...

What a fun reason to celebrate! I'm celebrating that Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting is pulling me out of a book slump (Demonglass helped, of course!)

Heather said...

I am celebrating finding a special little used bookstore that allowed me to grap 5 fabulous books for under 30 books, and they are hardcover, barely used, and its..just..well it's just awesome.!
