Books for thought is hosted by Eleni at La Femme Readers
Question: When you are called a nerd for loving books, how do you feel?
Answer: I used to feel embarrased, but now I just feel annoyed, and sorry for the people who think its ok to make fun of people's hobbies. You don't see me making fun of your 8 hour a day Call of Duty addiction. I more feel upset at the lack of respect rather than being put down for reading.
I have been made fun of for reading for most of my life so now I'm used to it (sad aye?) but I still feel sorry for people who think that reading is something to be made fun of, I;m not saying you have to love it, I'm just saying...each to their own.
