No one actually likes to read, prove me wrong.

Or at least the vast majority of people won't read anything unless it's some popular thing like Harry Potter.

I don't blame them either, reading is boring and outdated when you can easily listen to more pratical forms of media to absorb information or have fun. Especially if we are talking about actual physical books, which literally have no reason to exist other than being an economical alternative to owning a computer.

The people I met who claim they love to read are usually annoying morons who just want to pose as smart or interesting people.

Prove me wrong. If you reply with "I like to read" your opinion is instantly invalid.

With the right book I can really appreciate the art in an author's prose, and that can blend well with the pleasure of unfolding a world in my mind. I suppose you could accomplish the same with an audiobook, but going at my own pace is my personal taste if I really want to get into a work.
Last time I lost power, when a hurricane knocked it out for a few days, I read the Hobbit. It was a wonderful journey, and I've been trying to read more since.

I like to read. People enjoy different things anon, you don't have to get it you just have to not be a dick about it. Personally books are my favourite form of media because my imagination is generally more satisfying to me than other people's drawings and voice acting. If you think more in words than sensations or you just don't have much imagination then you'll likely appreciate other artforms more, that's okay.

Going along with books because you want to keep your own pace is perfectly valid, I still think that's a minority though.

What the fuck why can't I just enjoy my media?

These are the type of people who only read to feel smart and enlightened. They carry around their buzzword books in public and absolutely disgust me.

You're annoying anon, but also a little bit based.

It doesn't matter if there are or not.

I like the freedom of imagination that books give compared to other mediums. It's not possible to capture the horror of Lovecraft ancient gods in a painting, a movie, or animation. It's something born from your very own fears as you picture that. The same applies to any other thing, which need not necessarily be related to horror.

Humans love stories. Books are just one of the most efficient mediums to build a story with great depth. It boils down to the efficiency of the author as a writer and how engaged you feel when reading their work. It's also a great way to practice language, or even old variations of your language. Being able to read things written over a thousand years ago in a country far away from yours gives a lot of insight into how things were back then. This is something that no other medium will ever give you fully, because there are many things lost in translation (in mediums and also to your modern language).

Yes, perhaps it's a minority, but there's definitely degenerates out there who enjoy it.

Nope, you have to prove yourself right. Onus of proof is on the accuser.

Now you're just assuming the conclusion.
