There are two types of people in this world:
The people who read
Us bookworms often don’t feel understood among the sea of non believers. When we’re raving, ranting or occasionally (often) screaming we never really feel heard … they just don’t get it. That’s why we have to stick together with our kind to avoid hearing ludicrous rubbish like the following.
“Toss me that book… I’ll catch it“
I’ll ‘catch’ it… God, no! Let’s forget the fact that I have terrible aim and it’ll probably end up smack in the middle of your face BUT what about the book (!!!) seriously. Goshdammit.
Here are a list of things that shouldn’t be ‘tossed’:
“It’s just a book“
Wait. Gimme a second. JUST a book.
If it was just a book what are all these emotions. These emotions are real. What I’m feeling is real so just STOP! pfft
“You read too much“
How can you even read too much. You can read too little. You can read less. You can read more. You can read MUCH more. But too much…WHAT?
Here is why you can’t possibly read too much:
“Honestly, what’s the point of reading the books… just watch the movies“
I would just watch the movies if I wanted a lesser-dumbed down version of the books, yeah, sure I’d JUST WATCH THE MOVIE. But I like the good things in life i.e books, books and MORE books.
If a nerd spends as much time as possible reading, or talking about what their reading then sure.
I’M A NERD.
“There are so many pages“
No there aren’t so many pages. Gosh. When your reading you aren’t counting the pages. TRUST ME. If it’s a good book it doesn’t matter.
“There are no good books”
Wait so hold up. When did you become Lord of books. Why do you decide whether there are any good books left in this world. If anything I should. The crown on my head isn’t just there. I am Queen of the books… And I say there are plenty books out there.
“Hey so.. what’s your favourite book?“
This sounds like a fair question but it is actually evil. I am expected to CHOOSE. Would you make someone choose their favourite child. No! My books are my babies. Mama loves all her babies. But hey if you want a recommendation just ask… GEEZ.
“You don’t need any more books“
Haha okay gimme a second to compose myself. That’s funny. Hilarious really. Because my shelves think differently. THEY WANT THE BOOKS. I just go with it.
“I’m just not a reader“
That’s why I’m here! To convert poor, lost souls and show them the light. Gosh, let me do my job! *Shoves a book in face*
“It can’t be THAT good“
Well it is if I say so because I am Queen (as I said) so bow down (or just read my recommendations) Seriously though my recommendations will rock your world!
What absolutely mental things have you heard ‘the others’ say? Thoughts on people who just don’t read? Do you honestly have a favourite book… if so how do you even choose? Share please!
