This guy convinced me to read books regularly and I started with self help books. I read all of the most popular self help books but I got tired of them when I noticed they all started to repeat the same shit and then I moved on to the classics

I just grew up with it from around the age of 2. All that's changed is I now read philosophy and history, rather than Roald Dahl.

A professor who gave me a copy of The stranger, I had a good relationship with him so I felt that if he wanted me to read it it was because I could get something out of it and didn't want to let him down.

"This guy" literally just reads the table of contents and considers the book read. Literally.

Same with me. Even if my father doesn't read, my mother does - a lot.

>> No.20367983

>>20367959
I don't think my mother ever read a book in her life, so this is fascinating to me. What does your mother read?

>> No.20368521

>>20367983
She mostly reads books on protestantism and pop crime novels. The later she devours in a day or two. I've tried giving my father a book. He put a marker in the middle of it and never opened again, kek.

I wanted to learn to draw and all the good tutorials are in books. Then I decided to learn to write comics, so I bought a bunch of books on philosophy, psychoanalysis, mythology, fairy tales, and narrative theory. I also hoarded classic books from ebay. Over time, reading just became a lot of fun

>> No.20371256

I liked fantasty stories and funny stories. Over time, I got into reading books for the sake of understanding the origins of things. Now I understand that, even if you find out about an early, notable example of something, you might not necessarily be able to know why it exists or how it first came to be.
