Middle daughter’s commentary on reading

My teenage daughter–who has been known to go days without emerging from her room–sent me this video to let me know that “this is how she feels sometimes”.

I thought I’d share.

I lovingly told my middle daughter, that yes, I understand her love of reading, but she still has to come out of her room and do her jobs. I’m heartless like that.

    I’ve seen this before, but it still makes me laugh 🙂 This is how I feel when I’m at the end of a book and someone interrupts me.

    So true. If only I had unlimited time to read. Sigh.

    I saw this about a year ago, and have loved it ever since! It’s hilarious and sooooo true 🙂

    It’s really true–except for the part with the bagpipe. That rarely happens when I’m reading.

    I agree with your daughter 🙂 as a book addict myself i am just the same when i am reading the world does not exist just me and my book.

    I can totally relate. I also have a teenage girl who never emerges because she is either reading or writing. LOL. So glad to know it’s not a terminal illness.
