    Oh God Reading

    Reading; I mean what can I say? It's monotonous, tedious and outright boring. Words, just how is looking at black boring letters fun? I know that sounds close minded of me but.... Just watch a movie!

    What A Horrid Idea

    Who likes to read? Come on, it is so boring! I never read a word unless I have to and even then it I sometimes don't. I can't stand it. It bores me silly. I would rather go shopping or sleep or dance or have fun or anything, but reading! Sorry, no, repeat NO reading for me!!!

    Ever since a couple years ago,

    I would always read but words would appear different... Like, just random words would look like a different word, I'd have a hard time reading, and when I write, sometimes I'd spell them wrong, like I would miss palace the letters, for example, instead of "this" I wrote "htis...

    Do I Look Like Satan?

    When I tell people I hate reading, they look at me like I am a demon from hell. WTF?! I do not enjoy staring down at a sheet of paper and supposedly it makes me "smarter". That's retarded. I am not saying that people who do read are wrong for it. Sure, do your thing. It's just...

    While I enjoy reading in general,

    the one thing that bugs me are physical books. Due to being forced to read against my will as a child, the old book smell, and sound of turning a page instantly depresses me. Honestly, I think I am the minority, but I prefer ebooks to physical ones. I have given away all my...

    People Misunderstand Writers...

    I think most people assume that all writers love to read. I love good stories but I've never really been the type who loves to read a lot. As a writer, I don't like the idea of reading too many authors and possibly copying their style. I like to stay as original as possible...

    I tell someone at school

    that I hate reading and I'm told "You just don't have an imagination!" Actually it's the complete opposite. It takes me an hour to read 10 pages. When I try to read a book I must stare at the words and imagine nothing or else I trail off in imagination so much that I stop...

    Call me an idiot or stupid teen with a basic

    vocabulary. I don't care. However, I do like poems and short stories. I lack the patience for cinder block books.

    I suck at reading. I'm slow at it.

    I read the same paragraphs over and over and don't even know what I've just read. I'm not a stupid person at all, and I HAVE read whole books in my life but when I do I consider it a huge accomplishment. (Which is a joke because I know people that can read a book in 2-3 days) I...

    Reading

    The only time I hate reading is when I do not understand what I'm reading and need to read from the start a few times especially if the topic is boring, other than that I love reading.

    Books never Exactly did it

    for me. I'm ADD and have no patience to read. That's why I like video games because they tell the story straight out. How can reading words on a page be fun!!!!!

    F*** reading

    I hate reading because it does make me smarter, but hands on learning and explaining on a board does. I like dinosaurs, but a dinosaur book does not help me that much anymore, but a person explaining it on a board gives my brain open doors. Also, when necessary, hands on learning...

    Who Reads These Days?

    I seriously find it hard to imagine a kid reading these days. Technically, reading is just staring at different combinations of the alphabet. I'd much rather play the Xbox, play the computer, or watch TV then read. There is always something I'd rather do. It's annoying how it...
