If your cookbooks are missing or you have holes in your newspaper, do not be alarmed; you just have a case of bookworms. The library or the bookstore is a great place to catch bookworms. There are plenty of books that they may devour and be so absorbed that they do not notice your presence.
Bookworms are like termites and eat anything that is digestible. Sorry to say that bookworms are not bugs, but an interesting group of people. Bookworms are rather gentle and kind unless they are reading a book. Warning! You had better stay away because if they are disturbed they can be like vicious lions and bite your head off. Other than that, they are willing to provide answers to your questions and give information you need. But be careful when you pick a subject. At times, if you pick a subject that a bookworm likes then you will never be able to excuse yourself away from them because of the constant discussion on the subject.
What you should do if you encounter bookworms. First, try avoiding being friends with them. If you have a friend that is a bookworm, make sure you are caught up on all your reading because you will be quizzed on the latest book. Usually, bookworms have friends among themselves, but if you are not a bookworm and have a friend who is one, please start reading. Second, avoid any subjects dealing with books. Try having a conversation on weather or politics rather than, “Have you read this lately?” And no matter what, stay calm if they start jabbering your ears off. Walk away unnoticed and go to the bathroom or someplace quiet. Bookworms will eventually notice your disappearance and will try to find you. At least you could say that you were in the bathroom. Bookworms will say that they understand.
Honestly, bookworms are a quiet type of people and lead a peaceful life. They are not very good at socializing with other types of people other than bookworms. They do have hobbies, but the main part of their life revolves around books.
