I am a Reader. Reading books and thinking about books and dreaming about books is normal, everyday stuff for me. But for some reason, things that seem normal to me seem kind of strange to people who are non-readers.
Here are a few examples of things I wish the world would understand:
- If you call me while I am in the middle of a good book, I won’t answer my phone.
- When I finally get the sequel of an awesome book I have been waiting for, I don’t want to hang out with my friends. I want to read my book and do nothing else until I finish it.
- I always have a book in my bag just in case I get bored somewhere (like at a party, or a concert, or while I’m waiting in the cafeteria lunch line). Why is reading on the cafeteria lunch line not normal?
- Running out of books is a serious emergency, like, life-threatening. If that happens, I must go to the library immediately!
How about you? What are the reader things you wish the world would understand about you? Leave them in the Comments.
