You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else.
I have a problem with taking my book with me everywhere even if there is no way I’ll get reading done. 3 am trip to the grocery store? Bring the book along! 2 minute trip to pick up pizza? Bring the book along! I think I just feel better having it with me.
That moment when you’re reading a book and suddenly, your heart starts to pound, your eyes practically fly across the page, and you actually lean forward in order to be closer to the page. That’s how you know you’ve found the one.
Shout out to the readers whose parents and/or family don’t support their reading habits. For every time you were told you are wasting your time filling your head with nonsense and you should be doing something more productive. For all those times they told you they’re not wasting any more money on books for you and for every time they told you to stop wasting your own money on books. For every time they called you weird and blamed books for giving you “ideas”. For all those whose parents wanted proof that you were reading a book for class and not for pleasure. For every time they took away your book and forced you to go do something else and for the times they threatened to throw away or burn your books. To all those whose parents strictly controlled what you read. Your interest in reading is valid. Be a rebel. Read.
