Reply my432 on February 22, 2012 at 12:11 am Shhh! We are not suppose to talk about that. Reply Col Klink on April 1, 2013 at 9:39 pm What’s the first rule about book club? 1: Never talk about book club. Reply Col Klink on April 1, 2013 at 9:41 pm No, wait, that’s fight club. I don’t know what the first rule about book club is. Sam, below, appears on the same track. Reply DDR on February 22, 2012 at 12:09 am … nope, never thought that. But, I am a bit of a bookworm. 😛 Reply GuesssWho on March 2, 2012 at 3:52 am Diddo Reply DougM on May 23, 2012 at 4:10 am Chapter Three-ing this. Reply verypeeved on December 8, 2015 at 7:16 am i read that as dildo Reply comic writer on February 22, 2012 at 12:10 am Just finished reading the archive as this one came out. Your comic gave me a few good chuckles. Thanks, keep up the great work. Reply San Fran Sam on February 22, 2012 at 12:23 am The first rule of Book Club is you don’t talk about Book Club.

Reply Joreal on February 22, 2012 at 2:01 am And now I feel guilty for letting Valentine Vox the Ventriloquist sit there for what feels like decades. Reply Aze on February 22, 2012 at 2:32 am I think you are reading the wrong books. 😉 Reply Astre on February 22, 2012 at 7:33 am I agree. I’m quite sad when I finish a good book, and I’d rather read then watch TV… Reply Frances on February 22, 2012 at 1:18 pm Agreed. Who needs TV when you can just watch the stories inside your head (without commercials)? Except when it comes to Mythbusters 😀 Reply dave dell on February 22, 2012 at 8:26 am I couldn’t agree more. My daughter and I make fun of books interesting books – a good read so far – that are coming to the last 15 pages with multiple story lines hanging open. “Boom de Boom de Bing Bang” write your way out of it and off to the editor it goes. Reply MrSnow on February 22, 2012 at 2:46 am I always made my own bookmark ^~^ Reply Iforwhat on February 22, 2012 at 5:41 am Oh Adam, if I were gay I’d marry you, if I were lesbian I’d covert for you, and if I were straight I’d talk about what I’d do if I were gay or lesbian. Keep it up. Reply RoboGirl on February 22, 2012 at 7:41 am Ummmm…nope, don’t feel any of those things! Reading rules! Reply scruffy on February 22, 2012 at 6:21 pm There is little more disappointing in reading than finishing a book in a series and the next one doesn’t come out for months though. Reply Jeff on February 22, 2012 at 9:25 pm Spoken like a true fan of “A Song of Ice & Fire” by George RR Martin. That old dude’s gonna die waaaaay before he finishes this series. Takes him 6 YEARS to write the next one in the series. Ugh! Adam…this is the first time I’m disappointed. The comic is funny, but really…reading rules and I’m almost ALWAYS sad to come to the end of a really good book. If it’s boring (sorry Stephen King fans…he blows) I just stop reading it. I don’t care how it ends. Reply Adam on February 22, 2012 at 11:12 pm Well I consider it a victory if it took me THIS long to disappoint someone. Reply The Acute Observer on February 22, 2012 at 8:03 am I only agree with the second panel because I read before bed. Reply Music-chan on February 22, 2012 at 8:28 am Actually, I’m always a little sad when I finish a book. I want the good stories to continue! So I read the book again. 😉 Reply ItamarS on February 22, 2012 at 8:59 am Please, stop reading books. Leave it to those who enjoy it. Thank you! Reply dofain on February 22, 2012 at 9:05 am I’m nudging my bookmark but it doesn’t even flail o.o Reply Deamon on February 22, 2012 at 10:07 am Second pannel made me LMAO, now I have to find it again. Reply Charles In Charge on February 22, 2012 at 1:16 pm I may get some grief from this, but… What is a bookmark? I dog ear my pages. :-/ Reply MTGG on February 23, 2012 at 1:31 am AAAAHH! Sorry, I hate that. Each to their own I guess, but I only lend people a book if they promise to use a bookmark instead of dog-ear. I also have two copies of my Harry Potter collection, one to keep in near-pristine condition at home and one I don’t mind getting a bit battered in my bag Reply chzbrgrmachne on February 22, 2012 at 2:36 pm Why is Christ hanging out at Bug’s place? And where can I get a copy of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Musical Belching”? Amazon doesn’t carry it… Reply Yekaterina on February 22, 2012 at 3:17 pm Hah, I love books too and I’ve read some great ones countless times, but I can totally relate to this comic… most of the mediocre books out there just make me feel like I need to accomplish finishing them ASAP. I’m SO proud of my bookmark progression. (Just in my head, but still counts.) Reply this guy on February 23, 2012 at 7:36 am Yeah uhhh, I just play video games. I read occasionally but….well that’s the only point to my comment really. Reply Malcar on February 24, 2012 at 12:41 pm I almost consider it more of an accomplishment to not finish books. I often read them faster than my book budget allows. I read two books in the last week alone. Reply MortalAnonymous on June 6, 2012 at 10:10 pm More often than not, I’m actually sad to have a book over with. It was only ever required reading in school that was a drudge, but even a title or two in that category I read the whole thing in one go. Made my teachers nuts. = P Oh, and if I have an unfinished book, I actually feel guilty. I’m a complete reverse Bug in this situation. Reply Nicole on April 22, 2013 at 10:39 pm I love reading. But I admit, I’m still proud of my bookmark’s passage through the book, only to be proud of the speed of my reading. There are some books I wish would go on forever. And others (cough Gone With the Wind cough) that just never end in a bad way. Reply Izzie on May 28, 2013 at 10:33 pm I love books. I am proud of myself for finishing it, though. I always signal it with a loud SLAM! Reply Ausar on January 18, 2016 at 4:11 am Books aren’t really books for me. They’re movies in my head that only need light. No wifi, memory space, no battery.
