Who Are Genuine Book Lovers
I found that one twitter user boasted how many books he had read and introduced himself as a book lover. He seemed to be an influencer and let people know his recommendations. I couldn't help laughing at them because all of one hundred books he recommended were self-help books. I'd like to admire him to read a bunch of similar books without losing his interest.
People are prone to feel like understanding everything and becoming clever when they read self-help books. Self-help books are useful to encourage themselves and figure out the essence instantly. However, the essence is likely to become meaningless due to lack of details and accuracy. Though I can't introduce myself as a book lover, I have enjoyed history books, science books, novels, art, and essay from my childhood. I guess that one aspect of reading books is exploring the world which we never come across. Genuine book lovers must be judged by a variety of books as well as a amount of books they read.
