I remember a time in HS when I’d always read my personal books instead of assigned readings and my proff will get mad and tries to take away my books.
I’d read the Twilight series and he would complain that it wasn’t real reading or good writing.
I’d still bring my books, open it, and read.
His opinion was annoying because he was putting down my choice of books but I didn’t let it stop me. I still read my heart fill and Aced his class!
I still do the same in College except no one tells me to stop . Then I’d miss some part of my lecture and spend hours catching up. It is not fun catching up but when you’re a avid read and can’t put down a good book, you make those sacrifices.
Where do you read when you’re not supposed to?
