  1. You know, if EVERYONE actually read for 15 minutes a day, I bet that would be a huge upswing in the overall numbers 😦

    I think we’re already living in a bookish dystopia. I mean, people watch(ed) American Idol, Survivor, the Kardashians, etc *double sad face*

  2. My first thought after reading the title was Fahrenheit 451’s book burning. And a virus spread through books? Fantastic! And the contents of some books are more contagious or lethal than others. You can open a book, no big deal. But do you DARE read its words? Is it worth the potential consequences? I feel a fever coming on…

  3. Great post and fun to think about! My bookworm dystopia is pretty much described in Fahrenheit 451. What if they burned all the books? And prevented knowledge? I’ve always loved to acquire new knowledge and I was one of those weird kids who just LOVED to go to school 😉

  4. Bookworm dystopia? Imagine waking up one day and realizing you’re unable to read – worldwide analphabetism, and no one left to teach you how to read again. You can only ever retell the books you have read, until you forget them… 😉

  5. Oh! My! Goodness!!!! 😱😱
    After reading your list I am in dire need of rainbows, unicorns and cute puppies videos!!!
    The nightmarish worlds in your list are quite horrible, but the first two make me look at pandemics and the zombie apocalypse as if they were Sunday picnics… 😀

  6. Excuse me? How dare you even think about this nightmare dystopian world? This is the stuff of nightmares and I definitely would not survive. Surprisingly, I can cope with spoilers, but unfinished series would be my downfall and I’d rage.

  7. I can’t imagine any of these happening to us bookworms, the thought is too terrifying! Although I’m sure that some people who never read might benefit from 15 mins reading time each day. This was a really fun post to read!

    1. Hahahah it is true. It would be such a positive thing for the world to have many of our fellow non-reading humans indulge a book for 15 minutes per day but man… imagine the toll on us! On bookworms! Oh boy. 😛 Thanks for reading, Darina!

  8. Um, forget horror movies – this is one of the most TERRIFYING posts I’ve ever read!!! Limit my book collection to 5? Have every book end on a cliffhanger/open ending, or even worse, to have an author leave one of my most beloved series unfinished? PEOPLE BEING FORCED TO SPOIL BOOKS?? Just kill me now 😂

  9. I think if everyone read even just 15 minutes a day it would be a huge improvement! That being said, I completely agree with your list! I am currently without any fiction book to read and I feel completely lost 😧

    1. Hahahah I honestly didn’t think about those non-readers and how beneficial it could be. I just thought about the countless hours, day and night, that I spend reading and couldn’t imagine a life where I could only do it for 15 minutes!! 😛

      Hmmm… All I could propose is to try audiobooks and get back to ebooks. But something tells me you prefer physical books hahahah 😉

      1. It could be beneficial for non readers yes! But when you’re in the middle of a great book having to stop after only 15 minutes is indeed torture!😁

        I have never tried audiobooks but I’m pretty sure I would stop listening after 2 mins, BUT you remind me that I have an uncharged kindle somewhere!! 🤩 I do obviously prefer physical books though 😊

  11. Hahaha how horrible to be limited to only 5 books. I can never think about which books to take when that deserted island question comes up in tags. No I can’t limit myself to 5 books let alone 1! The 15 minutes a day would be hard too! Does work reading count? How about reading signs and storefronts? It would be a mess! 😵
