READING IN THE BATH TUB. How is it possible to read in the bath tub without getting your book wet? Does anybody actually do this?
BOOKMARKS. It’s not that I don’t understand the use of bookmarks, but I personally can’t use bookmarks. Why? I always end up losing them or not using them at all. Also, I hate to see them all worn out and wrinkled from use.
READING IN BED. It’s so difficult to comfortably hold up a book when you’re trying to lay down and rest. And then most of the time I end up falling asleep anyway.
READING GOSSIP MAGAZINES. I mean those weird magazines that you see while waiting in line at the grocery store. I don’t even like looking at the immodest headlines and pictures, and I really don’t understand how someone could read that.
READING AT THE BEACH. I know that a lot of people think reading at the beach is relaxing, and it probably is. However, when I’m at the beach, I want to look for sand dollars, ride the waves and build sandcastles-not read; while I can read anytime I want, I can’t go to the beach whenever I want.
READING COMIC BOOKS. Now don’t get me wrong. Some comic books make for really interesting reads, such as the Tintin and Asterix books. However, it definitely doesn’t count as true reading if all you read is comic books.
THE POPULAR AVERSION TO CLASSICS. Classics can be dense and slow at times, but if people would have the patience and open-mindedness to try them, they would find that there is a lot of quality literature behind the enormous word count.
What bookish things do you not understand? Has anybody actually tried reading in the bath tub before? What are your favorite comics? Classics?
