Things Book Readers Say that Piss Off Non-Readers

Dishing Junk – The act of dispensing ideas of little value in a casual or silly manner.

So a Reader and a Non-Reader walk into a bar…

The Reader turns to the Non-Reader and doesn’t even bother. Why? They don’t read. They don’t matter.

We love making fun of non-readers. Poor little non-reader, you have no clue. We really piss them off. Or I guess we do. I don’t understand Non-Readers. Here is my interpretation…

Non-Reader: Did you like the movie?

Reader: The book was better. I don’t even know how you figured out any of what was going on just by watching the movie.

Read the Book

Non-Reader: What new shows are you watching this season?

Reader: I read.

Read the Book

Non-Reader: I’m thinking about reading, you know a book. Have any suggestions?

Reader: Do you seriously want to go there?

Read the Book

Non-Reader: I took that classic book challenge on Facebook, I haven’t read any of them!


Read the Book

Non-Reader: I seriously don’t know how you have the time to read that much.

Reader: Who’s the latest Bachelor?

Non-Reader: Nick Viall, can you believe it?

Reader: My point has been made.

Non-Reader: Huh?

Read the Book

Non-Reader: I read Fifty Shades of Grey, did you read that one?

Reader: I don’t have time for this conversation. Books to read!

Read the Book

Cover Junk – Holiday Edition

Ready to talk about some covers? Some Apocalypse covers? Yes! I am. I love cover snark editions, it’s the evil in me. But, really – I wish I could make everyone’s covers pretty. If I was a millionaire it would be my philanthropy.  But, sadly, I’m not a millionaire. Today we are dishing it out for the Apocalypse cover variety. All covers were found just perusing the dregs of Amazon. They link back to Amazon, so technically I’m giving them promos. You’re welcome.
