Tumblr ar so ******* over the top about books.

You can't be over-the-top about books. Everyone should be passionate about them.

They're over the top about everything. You should see the Sherlock fandom...
User avatar #48 to #32 - DisgruntledTomato (09/13/2013) [-]
They killed it for me, all that ******* shipping. I want to cut their eyes out with spark plugs.

you know, I actually really liked Sherlock. I have for a long time, ever since I accidentally came across it years ago.   
but now every time I get a glance at the fandom, the show dies a little bit more for me.

Yeah. I learned that it's best to stay away from the fandom... It's a great show and they ruin it
User avatar #80 to #54 - thedarkestrogue (09/13/2013) [-]
fandoms ruin everything. They obsess too much over something and creep everyone the **** out.

Or just any fandom of anything.

It actually makes me want to like the show less. I watched it and thought that it was really good, but I can't help liking it a little more every time I see some twelve year old girl on tumblr talking about how hot Benedict Cumberbatch is.

I wish more people would read, it's not a difficult task if the book is interesting to you. In fact it's very enjoyable and addictive.

I hate it when I lend a book to someone and they don't read it.
User avatar #19 to #18 - oceanmist (09/13/2013) [-]
Yeah but I can never find any good books, and I can easily finish one in a day.
User avatar #25 to #19 - turkeyslapper ONLINE (09/13/2013) [-]
Are you interested in fiction or nonfiction?

I don't know what Situation you're in, or what you like you have to decide that for yourself.

I like fantasy mostly, but also read other books.

Harry potter is a very well written series, there's something about the way that j-k-Rowling writes that draws you in. They are SUCH GOOD BOOKS. The movies are great but they are nowhere near as absorbing and intriguing as the books.

I hate it when I loan a book to someone and they keep it for several months, insisting that they'll read it "I promise!," then give it back saying "I'm so sorry. I just never got around to it."
User avatar #30 to #26 - turkeyslapper ONLINE (09/13/2013) [-]
I've lent a book to a guy who never gave it back too, I think he didn't read it at all. It sucks because he needed to know the knowledge in the book to be better with girls but he never read it and kept it so it was pointless giving it to him. Since then I've had to buy that book again.
#31 to #30 - schrodngrscat (09/13/2013) [-]
I lent someone one of my favorite books three years ago and she still has it. Last summer I tried to coordinate a time to get it back and the one time we finally agree on, she doesn't show up. I don't trust anyone anymore.

< mfw people don't read.
Start reading a good story at 6pm, a good stopping point and go to bed at 7am.
I've managed to play a brand new game for more than 8 hours once. I've managed to read a story for more than 8 hours probably over a hundred times.

It's hard for me to find good books. The last three I read were complete **** and kind of turned me off reading (I used to be a literary fanatic).
User avatar #81 to #18 - brettyoke (09/13/2013) [-]
Maybe if they didn't read the book they didn't want it. Why does it irk you that people don't have the same interests as you?

and that makes me sad
User avatar #43 - cormy ONLINE (09/13/2013) [-]
Maybe if it's a diary, but just saying book lending in general... Probably not all that personal.
Music on the other hand... It definitely touches the soul. Unless I got a song for a specific purpose like a party or something, they usually contain something that resonates with a piece of me.
#66 to #43 - wizardofstuff (09/13/2013) [-]
I could not agree more. One of the worst things I can possible imagine is a world without music.
User avatar #59 to #43 - roflsaucer (09/13/2013) [-]
I can certainly understand what you're saying about music.

But saying lending a book to someone, or telling them to read it isn't personal? Yea, no.
User avatar #62 to #59 - cormy ONLINE (09/13/2013) [-]
Why would it be personal? Most books don't really have anything to do with your life. Unless you point a particular thing in the book that really spoke to you, the other person will never get the message, will never see why it's at all personal to you.
Books can mean a lot to someone, but lending it to someone else isn't that big of a deal. Basically the same thing with poems 'n' art, I've made them and felt quite strongly about them but when given to someone else, they infer different meanings.
It's not so easy to do that with music since it's just pure emotion. Lyrics are different of course but the music itself carries a certain atmosphere which is pretty well impossible to miss.
User avatar #88 to #62 - roflsaucer (09/14/2013) [-]
What are you talking about?

You're saying that music can make you feel a certain way, and when you show someone the song it holds emotion, right?

How would that not apply to books? Books are entirely meant to make you feel something, or think about something. Recommending or lending a book to someone is the same as saying "I think we'll feel the same way about this." Would you recommend a book you didn't like, that didn't make you feel anything, to another person? No, you wouldn't. You'd recommend the book to someone you feel will identify the same way you did with the book.

Sorry, but if you think that sharing books with someone holds no meaning or emotion at all, that's... well, for lack of a better word, retarded.
User avatar #89 to #88 - cormy ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
I'm saying that books are more up to the reader to infer a certain emotion. The way I feel towards a certain story/character/event is completely different from the way another person would feel when they read the book.
Music leaves less to interpretation. The emotion is raw and can only be felt in one way. Whether you actually like the song or not doesn't matter, it's pretty clear what the song is portraying. Books are more flexible than that depending on your imagination. Even movies and shows leave a ******** up to the viewer to decide dispite there being a lot less imagination involved in the shows.

I'm saying you can't convey your feelings through a book as well as you can with a song.
User avatar #90 to #89 - roflsaucer (09/14/2013) [-]
So just because there's more to interpret, it doesn't hold any emotion?
And that books lack in conveying emotion when compared with a song?

**** man, I can't even describe how much I disagree with you right now. Just because it's slightly more complex a medium does NOT make it any less meaningful when you recommend it to someone.

Not to mention the fact that books, more often than a song, leave you sitting there thinking. It isn't very often a song comes out that makes you think. It's usually "Hey, this song makes me happy." or "Hey, this song makes me sad." and it doesn't go much further than that.

I really don't understand how you think the extra complexity makes it less emotional. Sure, observations are different, but books will more than likely hit a lot of people the same way. There's a good amount of books and book series I've read, enjoyed in my own way, shared with another, and once they read it, talked to them about what happened in the book, how it makes you feel, etc.

While whether music or a book is better is different argument for a different day, saying that sharing a book with someone isn't personal? Yea, no. That's stupid.
User avatar #91 to #90 - cormy ONLINE (09/14/2013) [-]
I'm not saying books don't hold any emotion, in fact they hold and convey MORE than a song, but what emotions it has varies more among individuals. Because it's more complex, the number of ways it can be felt is larger. It will tend to be more meaningful to EACH individual, in a different way. A song on the other hand is so simple, you can't take it in more than one way. It's like you said, it makes you sad or happy, that's it. You can't get mixed signals from a song like you can with a book. The extra thinking involved in book appreciation leaves you with very different thoughts than someone else would, because you think differently.
Observations ARE different and though a book will likely hit a lot of people the same way, it will do so less than a song will.
Sharing a book is less personal for that reason, unless you point out and explain to the other person all the reasons that that particular book is important to you, they probably won't get it unless they have a similar thought pattern and life.
I'm just saying, when you share something with someone else it isn't really all that personal if they don't get why it's so special to you, and it's easier to do that with a song than a book, because it's simpler.
User avatar #92 to #91 - roflsaucer (09/14/2013) [-]
I think we're gonna have to agree to disagree on this one.
While someone may feel a different way about the book than you did, you still felt something from the book and shared it with that person. And because of the plethora of ways it can make you feel, there are tons of ways for there to be similarities in feelings.

What I mean is, just because it's special to them in a different way than it's special to you, doesn't make sharing it with them any less meaningful.

What's your point? Pretty sure both the message and atmosphere are STILL pretty clear in that song despite it being a stupid ******* song... And if that's the way someone REALLY feels about someone, then they relate to it too.

Unless you're just flipping me off and I just completely misread your message.

Harry Potter fans know nothing of commitment. I just read the 24th book in a series.
User avatar #83 to #78 - RoyalNightmare (09/13/2013) [-]
That has absolutely nothing to do with how much HP fans understand commitment. Sticking through a series of any length, especially with the final installment taking ages to come out, takes commitment. Not to say that you lack it, because following 24 books in a single series is something to be proud of. That doesn't mean you're any more or less committed than other fans.
User avatar #87 to #83 - demandsgayversion (09/14/2013) [-]
I just think being with a character from birth to 187 years old is a bit more intense than following a kid through puberty.
User avatar #56 - xdeathspawnx (09/13/2013) [-]
does anybody hate the word fandom? It just sounds wrong and way too tumblr for me. for me its like when I see people commenting stuff like, "did you just." Say, "slow clap for Harry Potter fans," not "slow clap for Harry Potter fandom." It not only sounds better, but is also shorter to type.

I like it if only because I feel we need a way to describe the various Micro-societies that pop up around popular culture and fandom does the job nicely.

I agree. I'm a fan of a lot of things, but avoid literally every "fandom". For the most part people who consider themselves "part of the fandom" are just flocking like birds with other's ideas/interests, and they're usually way too annoying about whatever they're a fan of.

"slow clap for harry potter fandom"
bitch ******* please.
Its the only series you have ever read and only did it because everyone else was doing it and as a result any reference to books equals harry potter.
User avatar #47 to #44 - thesinful (09/13/2013) [-]
> Others talk about books containing parts of your soul
> Harry Potter had a book that literally contained part of a soul.
"OMG! Why does everyone relate all books to Harry Potter!"
I preferred Dune.
User avatar #50 to #47 - kennyh (09/13/2013) [-]
I get that. Its just that someone mentioned the word "book" on tumbler so I knew there was going to be a harry potter fanbase mention shortly to follow.

"Book? Holy **** I read one of those once!"
User avatar #51 to #50 - thesinful (09/13/2013) [-]
Fair enough. Good series, hated that 7th book but whatever. Though my favorite book series as a child was probably Animorphs.
#53 to #51 - kennyh (09/13/2013) [-]
Hands down Animorphs was my favorite. I even named my pet iguana Tobias.
