(caption says: “I wish people would stop shaming me because I don’t read for fun”)
I’m not ignorant. I’m not unintelligent or “a victim of television and social media.” I do read, of course. I’m reading my computer screen as I type these words. I just won’t pick up a novel and read it for fun.
I have a really hard time following plots and I need to be able to match words to a visual (I also have a hard time talking on the phone). Also, bad editing (repeated or misspelled words) drives me crazy! When I read on the internet, I can copy the text to a word document and change the bad editing. With a physical book, I can’t edit the spelling and grammar unless it belongs to me.
I wish people would stop acting like reading for fun makes them better than everyone else. There are other hobbies in the world. In fact, I like to knit and design.
