I was on my third magazine, an old edition of The Week, and that is when I came across something that caught my eye. It wasn't even a main article. It is a total of four sentences at the bottom of the page in the corner. But it made me look twice...
"More than 450,000 people have joined a Facebook group called 'I Hate Reading.' A rival group, 'I Love Reading,' has attracted fewer than 45,000 members." --LATimes.com
Really??? I can't imagine that so many people really hate to read and so few really like it. Do the haters just have a bigger support system? Everyone I know likes to read something. It may not be fiction. It might be history books. It may not be biographies. But it could be the newspaper. I mean how do you go around saying you hate reading? It's like saying you hate that you have to lift your arm up to put food in your mouth. :)
Anyway, Facebook is a crazy place and at least it gave me something to write about tonight that was at least in some way related to my work of writing!
