#bookconfession is still going strong on Twitter. Here at MP! we love reading everyone’s deepest, darkest, bookish confessions, and we’ve come some conclusions.
From commonly shared sins to the absolutely outrageous (because who in their right mind dog ears their pages?!) Here we’ve gathered some of favourite confessions, for your pleasure, and prejudice.
Let’s just get it out of the way. The dog earers of the world. CONFESS!

Because, really, there are no excuses. Case in point:

Even if that’s a little… uh… unorthodox. But then, at least it’s pretty harmless. Sometimes your imagination can get real gnarly…
Sometimes in long meetings I try to work who would die first based on various book villains and their modus operandi #BookConfession

But it’s not all doom and gloom.
Sometimes we give books a hug after we finish them because they were so important to us #BookConfession

Even if not everyone is a die-hard book nerd.
Sometimes, just sometimes, Netflix is better. #BookConfession

And some confessions are completely flabbergasting:
#BookConfession I have never read Pride & Prejudice… And I was an English major.

(How does that even happen?!) Whereas some people live in a world that we can’t even fathom…

What is that even like? A life without Luna Lovegood is not one we’re willing to experience. But the next confession we’ve experienced and it was the best five minutes of our lives:
#bookconfession I've fallen asleep reading a book and woken up believing I was the character, accent and all
— Hope Fooshee (@Willow005) March 13, 2016
And if you say haven’t done this, you’re a liar:
Whenever I see someone reading a book on public transport, I secretly try and see what they are reading…#BookConfession

It’s not always easy being a book nut, however. Sometimes it’s just too much…
Sometimes I avoid reading a book because I don't have the energy for the feels. FEELS ARE EXHAUSTING FOR MY TINY SOUL OKAY!?#bookconfession
— Cait (@PaperFury) March 9, 2016
BECAUSE ALL THE FEELS!
@PaperFury sometimes I’m dying to have a book and when I finally get it, I just keep staring at it, scared of what will happen if I read it

The struggle is real, yo.
So, we’ve reviewed all the evidence, and it’s pretty clear cut. We’ve consulted with the jury and we find you all…
…Of being hella bookish and we love it. Mwah!
