So today I was in science class (Biology, if you were wondering) and we were potting plants. I know, I have no idea why either but we were. My friend and I were standing side by side and she asked: What did you do last night? So I told her the truth, that I read.
She then waited a few seconds before she replied with: You know you're kind of a nerd- And she was totally serious, no sarcasm intented. I didn't know what to say, because what should you say? I was just like: Yeah. And then we dropped it, but still it kind of upset me a little bit.
I'm sick of people thinking Readers are some big losers or big nerds that don't have a life (even if I truly don't). I mean what's so bad about picking up a book and reading to get out of my own world for a few seconds and go into a world that an author has created? Why would you be calling me a nerd, when alll you do is go on Facebook and talk to people all night? I just don't understand why reading isn't acceptable to people.
I'm sick of not talking more about books, which is something I genuinly like to do. Sometimes I may ask if someone has read a certain book that I have loved but they give me a wierd look and say no. I then feel stupid for asking and drop the topic, soon. Maybe, just maybe, I would like to talk about a boy book character that is suuuper cute instead of a guy that has just walked past in the hallway.
And that's why I have this handy dandy blog. So I can share and explore books with all of you guys and we can talk about books. I just wish I could do that with my friends and fellow classmates.
