nerd of the series basically

No, but hear me out:

-Gohan, with his love of books and learning, finds out that Piccolo can’t read (because when would he have learned?)

-Gohan teaching his sensei to read in between sparring sessions

-Piccolo grumbling about it being a waste of time but secretly loving it

-Gohan giving Piccolo books he thinks he’ll like

-Gohan and Piccolo reading books together

-Gohan and Piccolo eagerly waiting for the latest book in a favorite series

-Basically being nerds and Piccolo is a little embarrassed but dammit the kid makes him so happy so YES he will wait for the midnight release of the book (He’ll be on the roof of the bookstore though- he draws the line at waiting with the crowd)
