poinck,

I am telling my partner about almost all funny memes at Lemmy while they are reading a book. It is frustrating at times, when there are too many good memes.

This is me, but on my lunch at work. I’m the only person there who reads for fun, so they don’t get it lol

SomeAmateur,

I found out my library uses hoopla and libby to let me borrow ebooks so no I read on my phone instead of doomscrolling all day. Working my way through the Hunger Games series at the moment, I can’t believe I slept on it for so long.

When your spouse now wants to chat during the most exciting part of the book after the room had been completely quiet and comfortable for the past hour during the most boring chapters.

exocrinous,

You should try talking to your spouse. I have two effective strategies:

The Honest and Straightforward: “Hey, I’m at a really thrilling part of this book, can you give me an hour to myself to finish it? We’ll do whatever you want to do afterward. Thanks.”

The Infodump Overwhelm: Turn your autism up to full throttle and keep talking about the book without letting them get a word in edgewise until they get sick of you and leave for an hour.

niktemadur,

Looks like a Ye Olden YouTube clickbait thumbnail from the 18th century… ThouTube? ThineTube?

This lady-in-waiting has her MIND BLOWN by this one quote from Voltaire!

gregorum,

UreTube, Comrade! Smash the chains of oppression, and seize the means of free expression! For it belongs to all of us!

When you sit down to read in a common area where everyone hangs out, then complain about the noise.

SomeAmateur,

Sometimes it’s just thin walls and loud family members. Been there

DavidGarcia,

when you read the manual about how to remove superglue with one hand

"what are you reading?"
Like I sat down and opened a book as a fucking conversation starter?! Clearly I don't want to bloody talk to you right now!

SomeAmateur,

“On Killing” (fr it’s an interesting book if you are into psychology or military stuff)
