Lately I think I have been more annoyed than usual by things that I have heard. We all hear this stuff or experience it as book lovers and I thought I would share some things that seriously make me roll my eyes. Let me know in the comments what annoys you!
“Oh you read for fun? I didn’t know anyone read books anymore!”
You honestly didn’t think anyone read anymore? Where do you think all of these great movies and tv shows come from?
When someone interrupts you mid-chapter for a stupid question. Check your weather app or Google. I’m BUSY.
“Hey what is your book about?”
Then their eyes glaze over when you explain. Because they don’t actually care and were not prepared for your book passion.
“Wait. Libraries are still around? Why?”
Because books are expensive Karen.
Jokes about how we are so weird for reading.
“Oh I don’t have time to read, i’m so busy.”
This usually comes from the person who binged a 6 season show last week. Which is fine… but you have time, just other priorities.
The people who say that we are wasting our minds with fiction. Hey Phil, do you watch anything other than police procedurals and the history channel?
“Eh, reading takes too long. I’ll just watch the movie.”
I just. THE DETAIL. YOU ARE MISSING ALL THE GOOD STUFF.
