I have a hard time with stuff like this. I realize it’s a joke, and something not to be taken too seriously, but it also scares me because it can be seen as exclusionary. The quotation marks are there, I hope, to indicate the concept of “real” books is a ridiculous one, but it scares me that someone could see this and carry that message forth as an ideology.
The focus shouldn’t be on what or how we are reading, but rather that we are reading.
I promise I won’t always be so uptight about these kinds of jokes. Having a sense of humor is so important to me, but every so often I feel the need to climb onto my soapbox.

The focus shouldn’t be on what or how we are reading, but rather that we are reading.

PREACH.IT.

Indeed. I like to take this as a joke and I smile but I get why you’d feel the need for a soapbox clarification.

short story. when i was a kid i alway got mad when my books became worn out from repeated readings. one day i told my aunt this and she said that books with binding creases, dog eared pages and worn out covers were books that had been loved by their owners and that those marks were marks of love. so when i see this image of harry potter books with ripped jackets and obvious wear and tear it makes me smile, because they have been loved.

My 3rd grade teacher once told me to read the books that are the the most damaged on the outside because you can tell by the damage its been read by a lot of people, and there’s usually a great story on the inside.
This advice hasn’t failed me yet.

friendly reminder

biancohills:

that not all television is mindless garbage

image

not all books are fine literature

image

not all video games are about murder and violence

image

and that things are often much more than they first appear to be

image

that art is powerful

image

and that it comes in many different forms

image

image

image

and from the most unexpected places

image

image

but that no one, no one, has the right to decide what is art and what isn’t.
