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 have an eReader, which can be lit up so as to read in the dark. Even the intensity of the light is adjustable. That solves a host of problems.

I used to collect books until they started taking over the house. Now I read almost everything on my Nook, and I love it. Now my collection of ebooks is enormous, but they can still be loaded on to a Micro SD card. :)

Reading helps make solitude more enjoyable. You may be alone, but at the same time not alone.

There are a few books that have always stuck with me. Once I grew up, I went back and reread them in order to enjoy them again. But I discovered one thing. The way I remembered them growing up was not quite the same as rereading them as an adult. Not a 'positive' or 'negative', but different. If you are going to return to your favorite books, be prepared for this.

The movies almost never delivers. They usually leave parts out or twist things that's essential to understanding the characters or to how the ending will unfold.

So true. Many people from my class see me as out of ordinary (I like to think I really am unordinary) and thus, worth investigating, so they keep inviting me at parties and so on... First reason I don't go: I have other things to do(especially reading). Second reason? They are morons. You can recognise one by the fact that they don't read books on purpose(for sometimes one barely manages to find a few minutes to spare for a favourite read. I've experienced that. It's depressing.)

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.

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.

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.
