then what do you expect me to do when im not allowed a laptop and not allowed to go outside the camp. I mean sure ill probably play cards and poker and stuff but ill definetly need more entertainment then that.

I don't read books because I really don't find them entertaining.I think it's hilarious that people look down on my when I tell them that I don't read books and act as if they are smarter or something because of their entertainment sources. However most of the time, the people that do read a lot of books have horrible grammar and/or spelling such as the "then" that you wrote.

I'm really just writing an observation here about how ironic that is.

i like to read to learn about things, like biographies or the history of something i'm interested in

i prefer reading to learn over watching a documentary, but i'd rather watch a tv show or a movie for entertainment over reading a fictional book

I always perfer TV over books, always.  Unfortunately a lot of good books haven't been made into watchable form.

I'm such a plot driven person with no interests in the settings and mood of a book.  My outlook is always "Can they not give me a shorter more condensed version",  terrible but idc.
I'm always right.

if somebody that has horrible grammar claims to read a lot he's probably lying

It depends on the kind of books they're reading.

@OT

The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett was a decent book in my opinion. It's historical fiction spanning over several generations revolving around the backstory of the building of a cathedral. Lots of different characters, woven into the midst of a fictional cathedral town somewhere in England in the middle of a civil war sometime around the reign of Stephen of Blois (1130ish). Finishes sometime around 1170s. It's somewhat lengthy with about 1000 pages or so.

I'd recommend anything by Sebastian Faulks.

If you want a (very) short non-fiction book, try free will by Sam Harris,

If you want to rape any discussion about religion and its poison, any book by Sam Harris is recommended.
