Having blogged about books for more than four years now, I tend to have a skewed perception of the general public and how much people usually read. Plus, having grown up with a good deal of bookish friends, I’ve almost always had someone to talk books with.
So it’s always been a little difficult for me to relate to people who don’t read. And it wasn’t until recently that I met people who actually said they don’t read, and I’m just like “…oh. Okay.” I don’t really know how to respond because the idea of not reading, or not even wanting to read, is totally foreign to me. So much of my life revolves around the things I read that there’s going to be inevitable distance between me and someone who doesn’t read.
Do you ever have trouble relating to people who don’t read? Or do you make sure to surround yourself as much as possible with people who DO read?by
