If you remember on 4/1, there was an April Fool's Challenge from another website and I posted that to show you and decided to take the challenge because I have missed out on so many other challenges.
So far I did day one (play a book prank on someone) and day two (tell everyone why I am a fool for books)
So now is day three. Today I have to "Be A Fool For Books" and discuss why I like books better than people.
So I think a lot of us are going to have similar answers. Maybe not. I cannot wait to see.
For me, books are better than people because they know how to tell a story. The do not forget important details and a lot of times they are funny.
Books smell nice which is more than I can say for some people.
Books look nice again more than I can say for some people.
Books do not make you feel bad about yourself (barring maybe a self-help book that you cannot get help from).
Books are always there for you when you need them.
Books do not talk back to you in a way that is mean or nasty. They do not get irritated with you.
Books do not mind if you spend your day in your pajamas.
When you fall asleep with a book it does not snore.
You do not have to feed or offer a drink to a book.
You do not have to wait for a book to call you.
I can start getting really specific but I think that is enough. Enough to really now show me why I hang around with books! They are special to me and I think I would be, if it came down to it, fine on my own with nobody except me and my books. Seriously.
