1. “You know about SO MANY great books. All. The. Time.” (@sqq100)

2. “Lots of wonderful late-night talks about books and how fun reading is.” (Katie Morrissey)

3. “You can know that they REALLY want to be your friend. Most book nerds don’t have time for casual friendships and, generally speaking, would rather be spending their free time with fictional people than real people. If a book nerd wants to spend time with you, that’s the greatest compliment you can get.” (Faye Lilley)

8. “Victorian comebacks and random quotations.” (@livesingularity)

10. “You’ll have someone to book shop with who won’t rush you!” (Diana Rivero)

11. “Unending supply of new words to use in regular conversations.” (@iCoder1978)

12. “Always knowing what the movie adaptation left out.” (@veragfischer)

13. “They’re easy to shop for.” (Denise Lacombe)
