Horrorshow dialogue

From lunch today:
I was sitting by myself reading a book, waiting for a colleague to join me. Another colleague walks by me, stops, sees me reading and starts talking.

He: is that a Kindle?

I: yes, it is.

He picks it up, checks it out.

He: nice.

I: yeah, I really dig them. Are you thinking about getting one?

He: no, I’m not into that.

He then walks off. I’m reading the start of a very everyday, shocking autobiography,  but as I realise that he meant that he’s not into reading, that fucking shocked me.

Swedish men and reading, not two things that often go together.

    I’m afraid reading has been out of vogue for quite a while now.

    Especially if it’s more than 200 pages.

    It\’s bleeding horrible! I mean, I know I sound like an old man, but people buy virtual reality gear but should read, dammit! That\’s how they\’d get a feel for where their imagination could take them. OK, I\’ll stop ranting.

    Hey, you’re ranting/preaching to a bookaholic.

    I’ve been reading, well, ever since I knew how to.
