The Book Life…in Memes
I think it’s obvious Marie Kondo was not an English major, and probably has never known one…
During my undergrad I was averaging 23 required books a semester. I have a small bookcase just for my text books for the semester. One shelf has all my required reading on it, another has reference material and whatever I am collecting for research. I have been known to buy books I am using for papers because the library frowns on highlight and annotating books.
This applies here…
I beg to differ on this point. I started a presentation like this once. You just have to be able to explain why the book sucks and give examples.
This is my cat. Only if you try to move him off the book, he will bite you. I took a picture once of him laying on the book I needed to read for class just in case I had to tell my professor why I didn’t get my reading done.
People obviously don’t think these things through. Just sayin’.
I want someone to explain to me how reading is doing nothing. Why is it okay to bother someone when they are reading? If you start talking during a TV show or movie someone is watching they get annoyed and you are told to either 1. shut up 2. wait for a commercial/the end. Worst scenario the person totally overreacts by shutting off the TV and acts like you just killed their dog. And yet, if one complains about being interrupted while reading we’re treated like we’re unreasonable. Someone explain the difference to me, please!
I now at least succeed in keeping all my books in one room. It’s taken some practice, but my books are no longer scattered through every room in the house.
Read the book. Seriously. Read the book.
Every. Damn. Time. So far this year alone I have bought duplicates of three different books. The worst part of that is, one of those books I also put on reserve at the library, right after I ordered the second copy.
Actually, I did do this once. I went in and bought one book. Once. Normally I go in after a new release or a specific book and walk out with a minimum of 3 books.
