I received this text message from a friend:
Ate Che-Che, why is Gus like that? I’m gonna cry!
And I immediately sent her a consoling reply, telling her that life is not always a happily-ever-after tale, knowing that she is referring to the ending of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
Who said that bookworms are antisocial? We are not. We just choose the people we want to talk to. Try to visit a book’s Facebook page or Instagram account, you will see millions of readers sharing their thoughts about the characters, the plot, the author, how the book was creatively written, how a certain event can be related to real-life situations, and how an ideology being discussed impacts a person’s ethics.
It’s wonderful how books can make people connect instantly. Someone will start a quote from a book and every nerd in the room will follow suit. And thank God for the Internet, a single hashtag will direct you to thousands of feeds for a certain fiction character.
That’s enough blabber for me today. Let me get back to Westeros. The Season 4 of Game of Thrones will air this April and I have to finish the books first.
