since I am a member of various book groups on Facebook, I got to notice something eventually: there are a lot of different book people out there! No, I haven’t just realised it, but it was a thought that made me wonder how many types are out and about.
So I created this list of different book types I came up with. If there’s something missing, you can tell me and it is going to be some kind of group activity to complement it. Let’s fetz!
- Keeps all the books
What is space even? Do you really need a desk or a bed if it comes to reading and collecting books? I’m sure you don’t…
- Owns only eBooks
Why waste paper when you can have an eReader full with eBooks on, right? Plus they’re cheaper, so yay for me!
- Only borrows Books
If you think Books are an unnecessary space waster, why owning them when you can borrow them? You don’t only have more space and more money for more important things, you can also simply give the book back if you haven’t liked its story. Convenient!
- Hates eBooks
Ugh, electronic books! Where is my wonderful smell of paper and ink? Also, I want to see my collection of books, so eBooks are a big no no! Who has even thought of electronic books, is everything going to be digital in the future?
- Sells Books after reading them
Ha, more space for more books if I sell the old ones! I might not get loads of money back, but still. More money equals more books. More books, more happiness. Easy!
- Doesn’t care how the Book is going to look after it’s read
People who look after their books, don’t breaking the back or not adding dog ears are weird. I like having a book where you can see that it has been read! Used books already tell a story on their own and that’s cool.
- Takes Books everywhere (count eReader in)
Long train ride on my own? No internet connection because the location sucks? A book, either an eBook or a regular book will help you to fight the boredom wherever you are.
- Does only read one genre
It is not like I have not read other genres, but all the other ones suck, so I stick to my favorite one. It never disappoints and it is fun, so why change it?
- Does only read Graphic Novels
Why reading books without pictures in it when you are able to read awesome stories with amazing art in it? For me it is a win-win situation!
- Doesn’t read at all
Books suck and hurt my eyes, I stay with movies and TV shows.
What do you think of this list? Did I miss something? Please note to not take this too seriously. And most important: which type of book person are you?
