A short while back I was talking to my brother on the phone. I don't get to see my brother or sister too often since they both live in Alaska. But once in a blue moon I can catch my brother on the phone. My brother works too jobs: at a beer distribution company and part-time for a bookstore (the same one I work at). My brother enjoys reading just as much as I do so the bookstore job is more of a fun job for him. Anyway, he told me that he had heard that one of his beer distribution co-workers was making fun of him (and not in a fun kind of way) behind his back for, and get this, "hanging out at bookstores." Hmmm. Really?
So I want to ask you all, have you ever been made fun of, lighthearted or not, for reading or liking books? My husband teases me but only because I have three bookshelves of unread books.
All I could think of was that this guy was probably never read to as a child. Which reminded me of this photo:
This is my brother reading to me. Obviously we think books and bookstores are cool.
