You shouldn’t do it. Readers shouldn’t have to put up with it. And we shouldn’t have to hear about it. But we do. So friends, today’s post is all about book shaming. What is it? Why does it suck? Why does it matter? This post aims to encourage the celebration of reading anything and all genres.
Do you prefer reading to socializing? Are you more of an introvert?
Don’t have "the guilties” because you enjoy your alone time. It’s healthy to spend time with yourself. Enjoy the quietness and get lost in a story for a while.
"The guilties” are a commonly misplaced sense of guilt when enjoying something you feel you shouldn’t. For example, giving up a night out with friends to enjoy a good book can give someone "the guilties”. Although this phenomenon is a growing issue among the reading community, it has a cure.
