Said to me on the plane (randomly) by my seat mate today as I happily read away in To Kill a Mockingbird.... "Are you actually reading that voluntarily?!?!?"
Me, with a tone more condescending than I intended: "yeeahh....."
Him: "Wow, I didn't realize people actually did that. That was the kind of thing we had to read in school."
Me: "Yeah me too... I'm just reading it again."
Returned to my reading.
I shouldn't feel so annoyed by these types of comments, but I find them incredibly obnoxious and have nothing to say in return!
Welcome to Take Me Away!!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by Take Me Away, where I review books of a variety of genres. My favorite genres are literary and contemporary fiction, though I also enjoy some mystery/thrillers. I also enjoy sociological and psychological non-fiction. Check out the tabs across the top to navigate the site. All the reviews on this site are categorized by title (fiction or non-fiction) or by author. Check out the "About Jenny" section to learn a little more about me. Thanks again for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to say hi! =)
