Haven't we all been there at one time or another? Facing down that certain someone who can't believe we haven't read their favorite book?
Reading can be so personal, that when someone suggests a book or a genre to us and we say, “No thanks,” they can take it as though we've rejected THEM personally. Which is NOT the case. It kind of reminds of the look my kids give me sometimes. You know the one . . . the "You're ruining my life" look?
