Booking Through Thursday: Definition
Booking Through Thursday
What, in your opinion, is the definition of a “reader.” A person who indiscriminately reads everything in sight? A person who reads BOOKS? A person who reads, period, no matter what it is? … Or, more specific? Like the specific person who’s reading something you wrote?
If someone were to say to me, "I'm a reader" it would make me think that they actively pursue the hobby of reading. They seek out things to read. They enjoy reading and make time to read. It wouldn't necessarily matter what they're reading, but that they want to read things and consciously find and look for things to read. If a person says to me "I don't have time to read" (and I hear this a lot) I would consider them to not be a reader, at least for that moment in their life. A reader reads, busy or not. Make sense? Or am I completely off?
