Hello everybody! Everybody hates it when you're unable to concentrate on a perfectly good book, especially when it's because of OTHER PEOPLE. So, I decided to write a post telling you all what annoys me most when I read.
You know.... for future reference.
Sometimes, this is how I feel when I'm reading. It's like you want to smash the person into a brick wall but all you can only do is smile (here's Zooey Deschanel to you guys haha).
Here are the things that annoy me during my reading.
1) People constantly trying to talk to me
Please don't do it. Or you'll face the consequences. And I'll take my vexation out on you.
2) People trying to read over my shoulder
Arggghhh! Please do not read over my shoulder. I may be in the middle of a really good book so if you are reading over my shoulder, the book WILL be spoilt. Also, I find it really distracting.
3) People who say "what's that book about?"
Oh. My. Gosh. People may think this is a good conversation starters when I am reading, but it's not. I know there isn't a sign flashing over my head that says "PLEASE LEAVE ALONE" but I thought most would have gotten the idea. You know what, if you want to know what the book is about, then read it. Or google it.
4) The "You READ? You must be so smart!"
Please don't make these stereotypes. First, they are insulting. And offensive. Second, are you saying that if I never liked reading, I would be intellectually impaired? I guess reading MAKES you smarter, but it doesn't mean that all who read are smart. Apart from making you smarter, reading can help you learn to live life, let you learn from a character's mistakes and feel emotions that you never thought you would feel when reading a book. So please don't build these stereotypes.
5) Boring bits in the middle of a book
This is something different. I hate it when I'm in the middle of a book and there's a part where there is lengthy and unnecessary description. Like come on?! Who needs a two paged description about how red the bar stools are or how glittery the chandelier is? I get it that you need description, but just not TOO much, K?
