5 Things Not to Say to a Book Lover If You Want To Make It to the Second Date!

A few days ago, I was sitting in Communication class, listening to my favorite teacher talking about how we use or are used by the media, and the discussion moved to communities, and bloggers, and the things we have in common that the Internet allows us to blabber about and be happy together. It made me think of how my love for books has invaded my life, on top of my studies, and how I react as a book lover to any given situation. Yep, my mind likes to keep busy and go in million ways. And I was angry and I missed blogging. Hence, this post!

If you ever want to see me again after choosing a wonderful restaurant and dressing correctly (yes, I’m old school, I even ask you to be a gentleman and hold the door!), there are certain things to avoid. I am particularly touchy when it comes to the world of books. If you dare thinking you could actually say one of the things listed below, we’ll never go down the aisle together!

  • Who are Barnes and Noble?

WHERE ARE YOU FROM???????

I have more names in my head than football players’! You should too!

  • Oh yeah, I have a copy of this book. I use it to prop the TV set.

BOOKS ARE PRECIOUS!!!!!!! They deserve a shelf, a nightstand, a nice place in your bag, and all your love, not the dust and marks from your furniture!

  • Who gives books as Christmas gifts? It’s so boring!

WELL YOU WILL NEVER GET ANYTHING FROM ME, you dweeb!!!!!! Books are carefully chosen by book lovers, the picks tailored to the friends or family they are destined to. I concede it is difficult to choose for someone else, but in no way are books boring!!!!!!!

  • Oh, yes, I read a lot. I’ve read 50 Shades of Grey this year.

Mouhahahahaha. No.

  • Why get the book if there’s a movie?

BECAUSE BOOKS ARE SO MUCH RICHER AND FABULOUS! Yes, adaptations can be nice *coughs* but no image can replace the magic and escapism hidden in the pages of a book. Let’s watch a movie and criticize have a good time, but DAMN IT, IF THERE IS A BOOK, THERE IS MORE THAN JUST JENNIFER LAWRENCE BOOBS AND A GOOD DIRECTOR NAME TO THE STORY!!!!

Yes, I admit this post is quite violent and I shouted … a lot. But sometimes the feelings have to get out or you might explode! Of course, everyone is allowed to have an opinion (NO!!!) but boy, that post made me very happy!

Books are part of my DNA, beware!

  1. Hahaha, I love this post my sweechie! I tend to react a bit crazy, at times, when it comes to books, but… some people are just so ignorant and it makes me so sad when they just want to watch the movie because it’s easier, when they just don’t GET the love we have for our books and how MAGIC they are ❀

  2. OMG, Meggy hahaha this post was brilliant. I’d have MAJOR troubles connecting to any person who would dare utter one of these sentences to me … except maybe … the 50 Shades one? I read them too. I didn’t think they were good or noteworthy, but if it got someone to reading I might not be so harsh on them, you know? haha but great post!!!

  3. Brilliant! This post is everything and I love it…
    Lately, over the past month, i have heard a few times how ‘reading is in the past’ and ‘surely, no one reads anymore’.. honestly? i just gave them the cold, Eastern European look, scoffed and said- oh, darling, you truly have no idea, do you? – and walked away…
