“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” - George R.R. Martin, A Dance With Dragons
These days, people don't read anymore. Reading is now considered "lame", "boring" and "uncool". When did that happen? Why have people stopped reading? Why have they stopped encouraging others to read?
There were four different bookstore over here. Two of them closed down, and a third switched to stocking mainly school material, only having the really popular books (like Twilight and 50 Shades... ick). All this because people aren't reading anymore. WHY?!
I should be able to read a 1000 page book in public without getting funny looks. I should be able to go to a bookstore and find any book I'm looking for. I should be able to walk up to the counter with ten books in my arms, half of them books I didn't even realize I wanted until I stepped in. I should be able to do all these things, so lets get to it, okay?
