The Day Reading Died
Charles Chu

Thanks for echoing this feeling that’s hidden inside of me as well, Charles.

It seems that not only outsiders, like your parents, can guide you away from reading fiction towards ‘useful’ book consumption. I my experience, one can also guide oneself away.

Should pick up some fiction rather sooner than later, there’s a maximum of rational reading (for years, in my case) one can do before stopping to digest the new ‘useful’ information.


Like what you read? Give Thijs Perenboom a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
