I Am Bad

There is no way I can keep all the books  have read.  I give them away,perish the thought, and throw them away.                          Early on,like alot of baby-bomers boys, I readed world war 2 stories,comic books and Mad magzines.  Then the 60's happened.  counter-culture,black writings and life stories of mine heroes.      Reading has brought the world to me,and thus made it more  appealing.     The one drawback is I can't understand those who don't read. Their lack of depth often show in their conversations.     A shallowness in their thinking.   I often find myself bitting mine tongue from saiding something.  I guess I wheter read to much,then not at all.

Hey Wes, don't throw them away. There are online book swapping clubs where you can unload your books that you know you'll never read again & get new books to read also.

I agree with you to a point,ones experiences is important,but reading round out ones life. You will think outside your experiences, help you understand those who don't share your life events.

I see it differently. I don't know about those that don't read. I'm really one of them. I don't read that much, but I make up for it in life experiences. I know people that have never even left my little small town. They don't care that there is a world out there. Reading does add to the experience of life, but so does living it.
