Bookworm: how to understand, what are you addicted to reading books
This topic prompted me not a marathon of books last week, and the picture with Homer and Lisa. It is not strange, but the books can be addictive. As if I didn’t say that it is a wonderful disease, «mom, your son is perfectly sick,» sometimes it can reach up to very disturbing trends. This is sometimes expressed in a rather vile book snobbery, and sometimes people well so sits on the books, slightly losing touch with reality. Any extreme, no doubt threat. But anyway, reading books, approaching to the extreme might look very cool.
When was the last time you read the book? I don’t mean «flipped through» or looked and threw over a hundred pages. Namely, I finished the book, and you even liked it? When it came to pass that the book was literally read to tatters? When a paper book hesitated and it was gone unshared pages? When you reread your favorite moments? Unfortunately, reading in recent times with the advent of television was not very popular. However, as something is widely popular it was not, I think, 50 years. Here is the popularity of some tabloid reading was always undeniable. It is enough to see that people in public transport reading.
Those who were able to master the art of reading, can understand what it’s really like no other experience. He is different from watching movies, TV series, listening to music, viewing pictures and playing games. At least to get a new unusual experience is to learn to read and have some fun. I’m not going to write all these propaganda are words about the need to read and about the inferiority of those people who with some disgusted looks towards the bookshelves. Although if they do, then they are certainly flawed. If there is one available, cheap and relatively easy way to get the experience of looking at the world and just have a good time, why not use it?
But back to those who are addicted to reading. Praise to these guys! But this article wouldn’t exist if there were no people who read books and pretend to read them to seem so smart. For comrades who have taste for books; for those who think that reading it somehow elevates; for those who don’t want to read and for those who are heavily addicted to reading. This article is for you.
How to understand that you’re addicted to reading books
