So, once again, I am suffering from a severe case of writer’s block. This is especially since I have had to write a history paper AND a letter for application I had to fill out. With those two combined, I’m honestly sick of writing. But, fortunately for you wonderful book nerds, I’ve decided to tough it out, grab a bowl of ice cream (with tons of caramel syrup. Thank God it’s a snow day tomorrow.), and write.
I’ve realized that there is a huge variety of readers out there in the world. Some of us are strictly one type of reader, and sometimes we all fit several categories. So, I did some research, and have discovered several different types. I then proceeded to make a list of ones that seem most common. Here, I matched the type of reader with a specific GIF that would most likely match that type. Enjoy!
#1- The Impassioned Reader:
This is the type of reader that gets way too involved in what they read. I’m talking, whether their favorite character dies, or the capitol is overthrown by the rebels, this reader is hanging on for dear life, and is overdramatic about EVERYTHING. I guess we’re all kind of like this one.
#2- The Binge Reader:
The Binge Reader loves to read. Absolutely loves to read. This person reads for hours at a time, consuming book after book. They are the readers that stay up until 4 o’clock in the morning so they can “just get finished with this chapter.” This reader goes through 5 or six books in a week, and spends all the free time they have just finishing the next book.
#3- The Over-Emotional Reader:
Ahh… you gotta love the over-emotional reader. They’re the type of reader that will call you up in the middle of the night. Why? Because they just need to talk about that book they just read. This is the type of reader that really only needs a good cry, so they probably pick some of the most heartbreaking books and then sob for hours.
#4- The “Know It All” Reader:
This type of reader is probably the most annoying. They go through book after book and then flaunt every bit of knowledge they have. Most of the books they read are non-fiction. This is because knowledge is power to them.
#5- The Compulsive Buyer Reader:
Bookstores love these readers. They go from store to store, taking books off of shelves, only reading the synopsis of one or two, and buying them. At the end of the day, they probably spend a hundred bucks on books. They’ll also known for judging books by their covers. If the book looks awesome enough, of course they’re going to buy it!
#6- The Hard To Please Reader:
This is the reader that almost everyone hates. Why? Because all they do is complain. Don’t get me wrong. They love reading. Books are they’re life. But, when it comes to picking out a book, the bar is set extremely high. The books they read are never good enough. If, however, they finally find a book that reaches their standards, they turn into reader #3.
Now that I’ve gone over the list, maybe you should comment, below and let me know what type you are. I’ll have to confess, I’m a combination of the first five. So, let me know what you think.
