A KGB agent goes to a library and sees an old Jewish man reading a book.

“What are you reading, old man?” he asks.

“I’m learning Hebrew, comrade,” replies the old Jew.

The KGB agent asks, “What are you learning Hebrew for? You know it takes years to get a permission to travel to Israel? You will die before you get one.”

“I’m learning Hebrew for when I go to heaven so I can speak with Moses and Abraham,” replies the old man.

“How do you know you’re going to heaven? What if you go to hell?” asks the KGB agent.

“I already speak Russian."

I just finished reading "The Complete Works Of Sherlock Holmes" and realised/found something really interesting!

Unlike the different portrayals of Sherlock Holmes(plays + TV Shows + Movies), the book depicts something very - very different. In the book, Holmes isn't some irritating sociopath who has ZERO feelings. He doesn't undermine other people because they are lesser than him. But he is something very similar to all of us : He too is Ordinary!

Yes he has these amazing observational skills but that never intervenes with this conduct towards other people. He is very humble towards everyone, never ignores anyone, always makes it a point to at least hear the other person, never undermines the other person cause he / she lacks something.

And it doesn't just end there, the story line is completely different and the character arc is totally off to. In the books, the story revolves around the life of the characters, not just S.H. it shows how everyone at the end of the day is HUMAN and how it is not the guy but the circumstances that depict a crime.

Even the entry and exit of Sherlock's arc nemes

Re-reading as an adult, the Dursleys make me angry in a way they didn't as a kid.

In my opinion, readers who only discover this series, and other children's properties, as adults can never truly recreate the intended experience, because we simply react to scenarios in different ways as we get older.

The Dursleys are a great example of this, because I find they provoke fundamentally different emotional reactions from child readers and adult readers.

I first started reading the series when I was 8, and when you're that age the Dursleys are.... funny. They're mean, bumbling idiots who are the perfect foil for our rebellious Trickster Hero to outsmart with a witty remark or a clever plan. I've always said these books are masterpieces in understanding what children fantasize about, and the Dursleys are everything a kid could ever want in an authority figure. They're cruel, but incompetent and easily beatable. And most important of all, they're uncool. They're the exact kind of people we all kind of wish are parents were when we're kids, because even when

TIFU by reading my girlfriend the TIFU about a mother telling her child that Bob Ross is dead

I was reading this TIFU post about a mother who told her 4 year old that her hero Bob Ross is dead. One part got me in a fit and naturally my girlfriend asked me what made me laugh, so i started explaining the story in short.

As soon as I told her the kid had to cry because she had just been told Bob was dead, all colour left her face. With tears in her eyes and a pouting lip she asked me if I was serious - I explained to her that Bob Ross had in fact died in 1995, showing her the Wikipedia page to corroborate it.

My girlfriend is up there on the cries-because-swans-can-be-gay spectrum, so surprising here with this fact was not a smart move. The weeping waned away, but the sad and defeated mood stayed and now I'm on my way to pick up a bottle of wine and a tub of ice cream,so we can enjoy that during a Bob Ross paint-along.

I guess it'll be a watercolour made with tears. Thanks, /u/garryoak

TL;DR Girlfriend didn't know Ross was dead. Now she does.

Does reading a book change who you are temporarily?

I love that haze I get after finishing a book. For the next few hours, or days, I feel elevated. It is as if my entire character has changed to emulate that of the characters in the book.

My inner monologue changes in a way that is similar to the writing. The language I use alters as well.

How unique this experience, that I don’t find any thing else I do in my life give me a similar feeling.

I wonder, do any of you feel the same?

Edit: Just wanted to say a little thanks. I was having a shitty week, and feeling down. I wrote this on a whim after reading a book, and wasn’t expecting such a response. This made me really happy.

Does anyone find themselves looking up every definition of a word they don’t know when reading?

Does anyone ever look up definitions that may not matter? Sometimes when reading non-fiction I find myself pausing to look up a definition and it’s become an annoying habit that I can’t stop. After looking up the definition I have to reread a bit and then move on. The reason why it bothers me so much is that it’s usually a definition to a word that may not useful in understanding what the author is trying to portray. Some would otherwise skim through it while others would think they know the meaning, since the word seems common, but wouldn’t be able to define when asked. I can mostly guess the meaning of words from context but not satisfied with myself until I look them up.

Anyone have a similar issue l?

For those wanting to know, I make my bookmarks on Adobe Illustrator and use the postcard format which seems to usually fit the book perfectly. Creativity is absolutely not a requirement!!! I actually use to scribble on a palm card for less than a minute and used that as a bookmark. Some people asked how I make a bookmark before reading a book, and I usually either read the back of the book or watch a movie trailer based on the book which sometimes helps (but beware of spoilers/differences in the trailer) In the future I would like to make custom bookmarks, however, I would definitely need to improve my art skills so I can make my art look more marketable something like this: https://imgur.com/a/cxElG80 if you want you can follow my Instagram account [https://www.instagram.com/coolguyarmy/](h

Almost everyone can enjoy reading, but schools destroy that capability fast.

Alright so this is mostly elementary school focused, but it also applies to high schools. Essentially reading is great for everyone, so many benefits, but the education system discourages developing a healthy relationship with reading. If you’re not reading what your teachers want, you aren’t allowed. School doesn’t give you time to read, and systems such as AR points get rid of the intrinsic value of reading, and cause binge reading to be encourage instead of allowing you to read just enough each day. All grade levels should be given independent reading time each day, and students should be able to read what ever they want within reason. Obviously they’re has to be some content restrictions, but if a kid would rather read a self help book instead of the great gatsby, let them!

I'm dyslexic so reading has always been hard for me. I read half of a book to completion for the first time in my life yesterday and it felt amazing.

I'm 35 years old and have struggled with dyslexia and ADD my whole life. Reading for more than 20-30 minutes at a time often becomes both physically and mentally distressing for me. I often have to re-read entire paragraphs or pages because I was thinking about something else, or I will mis-read a word that changes the sentence and confuses the hell out of me. My eyes will often cross or go blurry which can sometimes lead to headaches. Because of this, reading an entire novel will typically take me weeks or months to complete.

Yesterday I sat and read the entire 2nd half of The Eighth Guardian by Merideth McCardle in a single sitting and it felt amazing. Her 1st person writing style kept my ADD in check as it was constantly on to the next revelation, or experience, without feeling hectic. I was so thoroughly engaged in the story of time travelling spies that I immediately went and bought the other two in the series. Dyslexia still reared it's ugly head a few times but I was ab

I'm reading every Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy Award winner. Here's my reviews of the 1950s.

1953 - The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester

  • How do you get away with murder when some cops can read minds?
  • Worth a read? Yes
  • Primary Driver (Plot, World, or Character)
  • Bechdel Test? Fail
  • Science Gibberish? Minimal
  • Very enjoyable - good, concise world-building. And an excellent job making a protagonist who is a bad guy... but you still want him to win. Romantic plotline is unnecessary and feels very groomingy. Sharp writing.

1954 - They'd Rather Be Right by Mark Clifton & Frank Riley

  • What if computers could fix anything, even people?
  • Worth a read? No
  • Primary Driver (Plot, World, or Character)
  • Bechdel Test? Fail
  • Science Gibberish? Heaps
  • This book is straight up not good. An almost endless stream of garbage science mixed with some casual sexism. Don't read it. It's not bad in any way that makes it remarkable, it's just not good.

1956 - Double Star by Robert A. Heinlein

  • Review: Status as classic well earned. A fun space romp even if it heavily glorifies the military. No worrisome grey morality. Compelling protagonist and excellent details keep book moving at remarkable speed.

Anyone feel like reviews can alter your reading experience, even after you read the book?

I usually read a few reviews on Goodreads to see whether the book would be worth picking up but I've recently realised that those reviews often give me a preconceived opinion on whether I'll like the book or not. For example if someone says that they didn't like a certain character, I will go into the book already disliking the character, which I think is taking away some of the enjoyment I get from reading. Would I dislike the character had I not read that review?

Or perhaps I really enjoyed a book and gave it 5 stars, but then the top review is a 1 star saying how they didn't like this or that, and then I will start convincing myself that 5 stars is too high, and maybe drop it to 4. Or even the other way around. Maybe I didn't like a book but its such a loved one that I give it a higher rating than I would otherwise.

I remember when I was younger I would just pick up books based on the description and didn't really care about what other people thought, and I used to enjoy reading a

I had recently started reading more due to COVID lockdowns, so I decided that I would pick up Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I have never read a book before that has made me cry or shed a tear, movies? Yes. TV shows? Yes. Never a book however.

My father had passed away due to heart complications a few months ago, and I have been trying to distract myself (I know that might not be the best way to go about it but I honestly don't know what I should do). Anyways, in the book when Billy was working on the second letter, he mentioned how Tralfamadorians look at time a certain way and that it was comparable to how us humans look at a mountain range. The quote goes:

>"The Tralfamadorians can look at all different moments just the way we look at a stretch of the Rocky Mountains, for instance.

AITA for reading my teenage daughters diary?

I (m35) have a 16 year old daughter. I’ve been a single father since she was about 3 years old as I got sole legal custody due to some addiction issues her mother has. We have a really good relationship, but I always worry about her not having a woman to talk to.

Over the past few months she hasn’t really seemed to be herself, I know she went through a bad break up but I’ve been worried it’s more than that. I’ve tried talking to her, and my sister only lives down the street so she’s tried talking to her also, but my daughter is really keeping to herself and it concerns me.

She went out to see her friends for the first time since quarantine started yesterday and asked me if I could give her room a quick tidy whilst she was gone. I agreed because she does a lot of chores but she’s not good at cleaning her room. Whilst I was putting clothes back in her closet, I stumbled upon what I now know to be her diary.

Amazing and cohesive world building, politics and intrigue that's well paced, characters that are likeable. Never been so into an audiobook before this as I'm more a paperback/hard copy kind of reader, but boy am I excited to put it on again and breeze through the rest of the story this weekend.

Can't wait to get to the rest of the series too! I am curious about how well the continuation/spin-off novels (by his son and others) pick up after the initial series by Frank Herbert ended. I'm also excited to have a watch of the various film and television adaptations that are out there for the established Dune universe, and the upcoming film due for end of 2020.

Would love to hear everyone's thoughts about the

The reason why so many kids/teens hate and grow up hating reading is because the education system makes them read boring and dry books that they’re too young to appreciate. This needs to change.

Seriously, in my experience in Middle School and High School, there are so, so, so many kids who either save all the assigned reading until the last second or just look on sparknotes in order to bypass reading such boring and dry books. This leads to them viewing reading as ‘homework’ and something that’s boring, and it’s why so many grow up loathing it and viewing it as something losers do.

Having kids read all the slow, award winning, thematically complex but slow and boring books first is just so wrong on so many levels. It’s like if you show a kid Akira Kurosawa or 1900’s German expressionist movies as their first movies and all their assignments consisted of these types of movies from 6th to 12th grade.

I hated reading until 12th grade when I read the stand on my own choosing and thought it was the best shit I had ever read. I started reading a lot of Stephen King and went wow, these books are super entertaining and fun to read. Reading about a supernatural clown terrorizing a

I don't know if this is a ramble worth reading or not - but it's my truth.

The legal, weaker drugs I found to be the most damaging.

At the age of 14 I started abusing alcohol to drown out the sexual abuse I was experiencing by a 60+ year old friend of the family. At 16 I was struggling with juggling the continued sexual abuse, the realisation I was gay and trying to live a Christian life that was consistent with my families beliefs – I was a mess. I began suffering from very serious headaches that were later diagnosed as cluster headaches, excruciatingly painful. I was prescribed Panadiene Forte / Tylenol 3 and one night when I was 16 decided to see what happened if I took 10 at once. After an hour I decided to lie down and put some music on – that night I spoke to God for the very first time. I still remember the feeling and can only equivalate it to how a heroin addict must feel for the first time, my young body had never experienced an opiate overdose and despite Codeine being considered a weak opioid – 10 tablets were enough to send me into one of the mo

My kid is reading too fast! Help!

My 9-year-old is ripping through books faster than I can get them in the house. Every book series I've been able to find that's suitable for him he's devoured. He'll often read a 300+ page book in a day or two.

Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Trials of Apollo, Timmy Failure, Spy School, Wings of Fire, and a bunch more that I can't remember right now. Pretty sure all of the Roald Dahl books have been read several times over. He's only read the first few Redwall and Animorphs books, so we'll probably work through more of those this summer. Tolkien is a favorite as well, though LOTR we've still only done as an audiobook.

Some things I have on deck include Discworld, the Myth series, and the Wheel of Time. But in addition to more adventure/fantasy/sci-fi series, what I'd love to find is some beefier and more challenging material that's also age appropriate.

We're about to go a 2-week vacation, so any recommendations are super appreciated!

You, the person who is reading this, are probably an asshole in someones eyes

Look, everyone makes mistakes in life and thats normal, but to one person who you’ve known you’re an asshole. It might be that guy back in high school that you made fun of or your co-worker who ostracize, but to at least one person living on this earth, you are an asshole.

Edit: wow reading the comments, you guys are just pieces of shit

If you plan to spend the next few years getting ripped or getting rich or reading books before you start approaching women, you don’t have a plan; you have an obstacle.

The number one reason men who learn about seduction don't get results is because their strategy involves learning without taking action. If you're not meeting new women and taking risks that might get you rejected, you're not making progress.

Tell us about what RPGs you have been reading recently

For myself, i have been on a hot streak.

Bastionland: Wow, such an amazing concept for a game, easy to run, Failed Careers (character types) are so much fun. Cant wait to run this game.

Vaesen: The newest Free League Game, i did a bigger review on it already, it may be my favorite Free League Game to date.

Centipede: A Zine Quest OSR Zine all about..... Centipedes, has monsters, character options, lore, stories, magic items, VERY well made and lots of cool ideas in it.

Forgive Us: LotFP mini book, has 3 scenarios in it, really like this book, even though it was very long it gave some really unique interesting ideas to adapt to your games. Probably one of my favorite LotFP products right now.

The Idea from Space: Another LotFP book, i didnt really mesh with this module, the idea i think is cool but i just dont see myself using much of the content.

The Gaellaeffa Guide to Troika: A cool mini setting which gives more character options with Troika, which i always love reading, Troik
