Let’s talk about anything bookish!
I love to read and it honestly boggles my mind when someone will tell me that I should STOP reading! The HORROR!
I belong to a reader group that actually posted about this. This person shared that her ex-husband did not want her to read and now that they had divorced, she can now read to her heart’s content. Now, I don’t want to judge her in this case, but I am really curious about this.
I have been reading since I was really young, and before I started reading, I was read to. Reading has been a part of my life and is one of the things that define me and I cannot for the life of me stop reading.
There are other factors that cause someone to stop reading. Of course, if one of the people, your spouse, for example, will want you to stop reading, I can see why you would. Right?
My husband and I have different hobbies but we also share a few. The great thing about our relationship is that he actually reads, too. Well, not as much as I do, but he reads and he understands my passion for reading. Come to think of it, he hasn’t told me to stop reading since we started dating.
Of course, I don’t spend ALL my time reading. And my husband and I have a compromise. Since he works out of state for 4 weeks, I usually have my me time, which I mostly spend reading. When he comes home, we do things together. It could be watching our favorite shows together or going on a road trip.
It is true that I tend to read less when he is here but there are times when he is watching anime and I am reading. So, we do have a balance.
What I am saying is that I still cannot comprehend why someone would tell you to stop reading at all. Do you?
Has anyone told you to stop reading? What did you do?
Would you stop reading because someone wants you to?
