Sometimes we all do weird things that make us unique and fun. Some of these unusual habits relate to our hobbies.

Reading Quirks is a webcomic series, created by the team from the Dallas-based bookstore The Wild Detectives and drawn by Laura Pacheco, a talented cartoonist from Spain.

The comic series is all about those weird things that readers do, and about hilarious situations booklovers might get themselves into because of their admiration for literature.

Take a look at these amazing, fun comics and let us know if you find something that you can relate to.

I did this a lot at work and at school. Though I've joined the ebook team for that exact reason - much easier to carry around a small, lightweight device than a heavy, thick book.

If you really like it, you can enjoy even the adaptation isn't that great. Just take the good parts, like seeing the characters and locations you always just had to imagine, and ignore whatever you thought was bad. Also remember that the movie will make more people read the book, people who wouldn't read it otherwise.... and the people who don't read it and think it's bad because the movie is bad don't matter, they would never read it anyway.

It's fine to lay them down like that for a moment. What really drives me crazy is when someone curls the page over so that they're only looking at one page at a time!

This is a teachable moment that can change a child's life. All reading adults should be prepared for this question and how to encourage a journey of a lifetime.

From George Orwell "1984". Everyone should have read it. Sadly, it becomes more and more important in these times.

This is where ebooks are an advantage. I like physical books too, but I like more being able to have and carry more titles.

I don't understand the need to buy all those copies, though. If you have the ebook, you can read it in bed or at lunch. If you have the audiobook, you can also listen to it in bed or at lunch. Why also buy another? If you save on it, you can buy more books.

Maybe try again after a while. It could be you're not in the right mood for that book. I feel for the short story book, they're my favorites, but nobody writes them because nearly nobody likes them for some reason.

Why would you buy without reading the blurbs? You know nothing about the book that way. How can you tell if it's the kind of book you'll like? There's a huge chance of wasting money on something you won't like when you could have bought something else.

My idea of hot, hot, hot: Guy or girl in glasses, wearing a chunky sweater, stretched out on the sofa, reading. HMMMMMMmmmm.... If he's got a scruffy beard or she's a redhead - well, I guess Heaven exists after all :P
