How It Feels To Be A Reader

How It Feels To Be A Reader

You grow up loving to read...

This carries on throughout your childhood and right into your teenage years...

You tell people that you love books...

But they all think you’re a loser...

So you try to reason with them about the advantages of reading a whole book in 24 hours...

To your surprise, some of them give it a shot...

Others don’t...

You scan the library together for something worth procrastinating over...

And you finally come across something great...

You begin to read...

It’s a textual masterpiece and soon, you’re completely immersed in the world between the pages...

Your favourite characters share a kiss...

You’re favourite characters get together!!!

One of them dies...

A good character turns out to be bad..

And you suddenly realise that you’re on the last page..

OMG! A cliff-hanger at the end of the book which only means one thing…SEQUEL!

But the book is finished..

And you wish you could turn back time so you could read it all over again..

You share your experience with others..

They just don’t get it..

No other book will ever compare..

You try so hard to move on with your life but your heart is still with the novel that made you bleed feelings..

You eventually find another book and the former is just a distant memory...

And the whole cycle starts again.
