Book Bonking (A to Z = B)


Do you book bonk?




Looks harmless enough, doesn't it?

But do you use protection?




Because eight out of ten book bonks end this way.




This has been a public health warning, brought to you by the Literary Police.

  13. Book bonking? What is a bonk? I feel like there is suddenly an empty space in my brain. Did you make that up? I must be really tired. I feel like that little kid who missed out on the last piece of candy.

  17. I cannot believe that I am now 42 years old, married for nearly 21 years, and have never heard of this before!! I am sitting out on the back patio at 10:31 am, but I'm going to put this laptop down, grab a book and immediately give this new thing a shot.

    Thanks for sharing, Ellie.

  18. The worst is when you are trying to finish the book late at night and then suddenly your head sags and bang the corner of the book slices your forehead. True or False I'll never tell...

  21. I'm worried about my partner - we used to book bonk all the time, now he hogs his literature and snorts when I invade his personal space. Am I stealing his light? Or is he betryaing mine?

    Apologies to the Babe - no slurs were intended in the interest of posting interestingly after alcohol ;)

  22. Ha ha funny stuff here. :) Good luck in the challenge!

  24. Love this! I'll have to be more careful when I book bonk so I don't injure myself.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What if you bonk on books? Is there any harm in that? What if you get booked for bonking? Is that bad for your health or just your bank account and reputation?

    Found you via A to Z Challenge. Great post today.

  33. I've been known to knock nooks and krash kindles, too. I must be pretty adept at it; the worst I have to show for it is a goose-egg on my noggin.

  41. Our personal book minefield comes in the form of wobbly-stacks avalanches. These land on heads and feet more regularly than you might imagine.
