Let’s start this week’s rundown of some our favorite geeky book tweets with an important reminder:
Plans that only involve you, a book, and a glass of wine are still plans and you shouldn't feel guilty about telling people you're busy.

Did you hear that, mom? I’M BUSY. But what to read?
If my parents don't send me my limited edition box set of captain underpants books things will turn grim very fast

On the reading life:

How many books that I haven’t read yet is it OK to own? At what point does it stop being cute and just become hoarding? Asking for a friend.
