Booking Through Thursday (8/4)

 

What is your response when somebody tells you “I don’t read.”

Horror, gasp, shock, shakes my head, dismay, sheds a few tears…

I always feel bewildered when I hear that, and my response is usually…”You mean…not at all?” Turns out sometimes that’s what they really mean, but sometimes they actually mean they read very little, or that they only read newspapers and magazines, but not novels, or they only read nonfiction.

I feel bad for peeps who don’t understand or get the joy that reading can bring.

Have you ever heard someone say that, and if so what was your response?

    I try to explain to a few of them what they are missing, and they just stare at me. About the joy it brings (specially romance novels), I’ve even given them books, but alas I haven’t been able to change their minds. I just don’t get it!
