you read any form of genre fiction
you barely know your classics
you tend to believe that if you like a given work, it is justified on an artistic level
you think everyone's opinion should be accepted and respected
you speak a single language
you read contemporary versions of Shakespeare or Milton
you read for the plot
you read for entertainment
you rarely read nonfiction
you don't have a solid grounding in philosophy
you don't have at least have some understanding of the Three Tragedians and Homer
you have little to no understanding of literature outside of your cultural horizon
you have little to no understanding of literature within your own cultural horizon
you mostly read contemporary literature
you believe 'the author is dead'
you make your literary analysis proceed from ideology
you think intricate prose is 'pretentious' and that the author 'should just get to the point'
your rarely read poetry
you think Rhythm and Rhyme is just useless rules and laws restricting creativity
you have a hard time explaining why you like a given work
you have a hard time forming structured and relevant literary criticism
you tend to refuse to judge works for yourself, rather relying on the opinions of literary authorities
you rarely read for more than one or two hours straight

does it count if I have a few years of French schooling and can speak on a basic level? I read Le Petit Prince in original french so that should count for something

I don't even read, I look up books and authors on wikipedia, so that I can more convincingly shitpost and argue about them.

whats the point of your post OP? I've been enjoying myself on this board. i dont get it. you've literally added nothing. Trying to keep people out, who are you? you're a child. I bet you couldn't tell me what the sistine chapel smells like. Or what it feels like to hold your dying friend in arms in war. you lose, good day sir.

Novalis is beautiful. If he looked anything like his busts, maybe one of the most attractive people in history.

you want to continue enjoying literature.

Seriously, if you value reading as a hobby, you should spend as little time on Veeky Forums, but Veeky Forums especially, as possible. It will either turn you into a jaded misanthrope that can't appreciate reading books as a hobby, or it will form an addiction that prevents you from reading for protracted periods of time.

Veeky Forums was a mistake and I wish I would stop coming here.

he comes to Veeky Forums for intellectual discussion

you've got some pretty fucking high hopes for this Vietnamese basket-weaving forum. You're one click away from seeing 300+ pictures of donkeys fucking fat chicks; do you really think intellectualism is what you'll find here?
