I do not understand how people don’t like to read. I dated a guy who scoffed at the idea of reading a book that, didn’t pertain to his life in anyway. He believed reading was wasting time and didn’t want to read a story. Thinking back on it I am so glad I dodged a bullet because he had no imagination and was so dry it hurt looking at him. He was so boring and it was due to the fact that in his 26 years of living he only read in high school. He was a judgmental ass hole.. But I am getting off topic. People should read more, here are 10 awesome quotes that should inspire you to read more!
