Hello everyone. I'm new here and hope to enjoy my time here. I of course like to read, but I have rarely in my life had people to talk to about the books I read. In recent years I have found it harder and harder to even find people that like to read. Most of the time I meet people that think that spending the time to read a book is insulting, or the activity of retarded people. This of course doesn't make sense as reading increases your knowledge and ways of thinking. I end up feeling sad for them as they don't know what they are missing and sad for the world of literature because each day it gets closer to extinction. Do any of you feel this way at times?
