YES. I’m tired of all of you pretentious assholes saying that I’m not “really reading” because I use a kindle.
Yes, you are reading.You are just reading a “lesser” form of book. Reading isn’t just reading the words on a page/screen, it’s smelling the book, new or old, it’s wearing the books spine out after rereading it for the X’th time, it’s leaving crease marks on a page you flipped too fast because you were that eager to get to the next page, and most of all, it’s losing yourself in a book to the point where the world around you no longer exists. And I, for one, cannot lose myself in an electronic screen. The words of a real book take on a depth that cannot ever be recreated on anything electronic. So you may be reading a book, but you will never truly experience a book unless you read it in a printed medium.
lol this pretentious bullshit. “The words of a real book take on a depth that cannot ever be recreated on anything electronic.” i mean really. anyway, the words of your reblog have no depth or meaning to me since i’m reading them in electronic form, but u tried it
Who are these people that go around smelling books all the time?
This is such bullshit. Whenever people go on about how printed books are so much ~better~ than electronic versions it just makes me realize how many people never think about the number of people in the world who don’t have print literacy.
There are so many blind, dyslexic, or otherwise impaired people who CAN’T use paper books. Having an electronic copy means you can listen to any text instead of trying to read it. You don’t have to have the audio-book, just a simple text-to-speech software program.
I guess no one realizes how difficult it can be to find braille copies of literally anything. Electronic versions are accessible to anyone regardless of ability, that should be encouraged, not shamed for pretentious reasons.
Preach it, PREEEEACH!

I recommend it. The beginnings a little boring cuz u got this guy explaining things to a child, but once it gets into the flashbacks and jumps back and forth in time, it all gets rly good ! give it a shot if you like that kind of stuff
The video version of Underage Smut: It IS Illegal!
Lots of hard eye rolls in this one. Maybe because I’m just so done with this topic. GET LEARNED. BE EDUCATED.
This needs to be made more public to RPers. Thanks, most of the people I write with are of age and have no desire WHATSOEVER to be labeled a sex offender. This is why it’s so damned important that you all be honest about your age. Sex is not that important.

SHE WAS HAVING A C H I L D
I’ve always hated magazines and paparazzi. When I was 6 i saw a woman in the waiting room and I started talking to her. I asked her what she did for a living and she said that she made reports on famous people. And then I asked “but it’s impolite to tell other people about people’s lives” and the look on her face was priceless.
