She points out that we need words to describe “especially bookish situations/feelings”. Like the Japanes tsunduko, roughly meaning “leaving a book unread after buying it”.

What I consider the most important of the needed words she lists:

< That intense feeling that’s not quite rage but not quite just annoyance when someone tactlessly interrupts you while you’re reading (the strength of which is directly proportional to the quality of the book).

Really? Do they not SEE my “Go Away I’m Reading” mug? Do I need to wear a “Go Away I’m Reading” t-shirt and a “Go Away I’m Reading” tattoo on my forehead? >
