Booking Through Thursdays ♥ Pet Peeves

btt button

A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.

Bookish Sarah asks:

What are your literary “pet peeves”?

       

I can’t stand people who look down on those of us who love to read as if we’re mentally damaged. Claim it’s a waste. What I’m finding even worse lately is people that act like authors don’t do anything so the books they make fun of us reading are devalued even more. As an aspiring author and avid devour of the written word I find that attitude indefensible and ignorant!

I know she probably meant within books but I can forgive a lot, but ignorance isn’t on that list, lol.

What’s your peeve?

Don’t forget to leave a link to youractual response(so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

About the author

TempeO

Tempeste O’Riley grew up in the deep south and escaped her conservative, oppressive roots as soon as she could. Tempe is an out and proud omnisexual/bi-woman whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what she couldn’t – defy the hate and come out. He has been her hero ever since.

Though new to writing M/M, she has done many things in her life but writing has always drawn her back – no matter what else life has thrown her way. She counts her friends, family, and Muse as her greatest blessings in life.

    I hear you! I get strange looks when I tell someone I don’t have time to watch TV because I’m too busy reading. As a family we decided over two years ago to cancel our satellite, because we felt we were spending too much time and money on too much drivel. Now we all read more and buy/rent movies. My BTT:

      I’m the same. I do watch Bones but that’s what Hulu is for. Otherwise, it’s books and a few movies. My kids are the same way :cD thankfully
      Thanks for the visit!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Reading is never a waste of time, it makes you a lot smarter.

      Thanks for your visit back.
      I love to read and can’t understand why everyone doesn’t.

    I haven’t had anyone tell me that reading’s a waste of time. But people do tell me that I could be saving my money for a rainy day instead of spending so much on books!

      I’ve heard that one too. But those same people spend how much on movies, cable/satellite, etc?
      I’ll stick to my books :c)
      Thanks for stopping by
