One of my favorite things about sharing a common love of reading with other individuals is the community that arises around various stories and genres. It’s just nice having someone who can get why a story left you curled up in emotional agony because it’s entirely possible that this person had a similar reaction. We might talk about it in person, or we might have a heated argument on a forum. Regardless though, there are multiple ways to express this love for books and stories.
And one way that people share this love is through memes.
Oh yeah. Here are five memes about books and reading to make you laugh.

If a book can make you feel strong emotions, then it’s doing a good job. If I am sitting on the floor, crying because nothing is going right for the main character in a story, then the book is doing a good job. If I absolutely despise the antagonist, then the book is doing a good job. If the story keeps me riveted and emotionally invested in a fictional character’s life, then…you get the idea.

This is basically what it looked like every time I ordered my textbooks online. There was that one time I ordered an encyclopedia that was so thick, the mail carrier came to my door, gave the package to my roommate, and then said, “I swear, I didn’t open this. The book was so big the package wouldn’t stay shut.”

Part of me loves reading books where I care about the characters and their plights. The other part of me fears it because I know how quickly things can go wrong in stories and that eventually, the tale will end. Don’t get me wrong: stories need to end at some point. Be that after the first book or the fourteenth, I genuinely think that a story needs to conclude. That doesn’t make it easy though, and I most certainly will go through a period of mourning.

Even though I try to invest my full energy into books, sometimes this happens. It’s even worse when I realize that it hasn’t just been one page… it has been twenty.

When I’m interrupted while reading, I’m interrupted frequently. It once took me fifteen minutes to finish two pages because I was interrupted four times.
