11 GIFs All Book Lovers Can Relate To

Books are the best. We all know it. Whether you're into bestsellers or titles off the beaten path, there's nothing quite like the feeling of cracking open a new read.

It's no secret that those of us at the Edmonton Public Library love books. We're all about discovering and sharing new information—in any form—but books will always hold a special place in our heart.

We have a feeling you, fellow book lover, can relate to more than a few of these bookish feels.

1. When you find a new series you're excited about

This feeling also applies when you spot the latest in a series you're obsessed with.

Seriously, so many books, so little time.

3. When you get to the weekend
