Do you think that it is the reading that makes people smarter or is it just that smart people read ? I have known people that read a lot and they're not particularly intelligent.I don't feel guilty but sometimes I feel less adequate, like people who read books are naturally better/smarter than those of us who don't read much. I guess it's the whole judging thing that seems to go on with a lot of things...stay at home moms vs working moms, wanting to having children vs not having children, thin vs being overweight. Like we can't just let people be who they are.
Did I read too much into the question? Lol lol lol [emoji4]
Yes, but sometimes other common interests draw people together.I think it's the perception that smart people read. Could be my own insecurity, though.
I have a good friend who I consider to be very smart. She is college educated, taught for a few years, is well travelled. We are quite mismatched, really, yet get along so well. I often refer to us as the museum queen and the mall rat, lol.
Our love of music brought us together. We used to get together weekly to play guitar and sing with two other friends but we haven't done it for a few months now. We're on a break. [emoji4]
Do you belong to a library, Blobb ?I feel like I should be reading more books, fiction books, and non fiction...
I also feel like I should read more newspapers....as I am critical of the media, and how real news isn't reported, but I feel like I haven't got as much right to criticise the media if I don't read....a lot of the news in the papers is quite repetitive and uninteresting after a while, but maybe it wouldn't be if more of the things that weren't reported, actually were..
oh, I probably still do, but I haven't been there in 15 years.Do you belong to a library, Blobb ?
