PERSUADING FRIENDS TO READ via GIFS
stage 1: persuading them to actually read the book
for me, this is probably the hardest part. i have literally FOUR friends who actually enjoy reading. FOUR.
stage 2: them finally realizing that reading is fun
i forced my friend to read the infernal devices and she's liking it so far so i guess i'm accomplishing something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
stage 3: getting to say "told you so."
"admit it, i'm amazing. what would you have done without that book?"
stage 4: seeing their reactions while reading
all of my friends text-rant, and let me just say, their reactions are in all caps and downright hilarious
stage 5: if a character they've come to love died
just when they think nothing else could possibly go wrong... >:)
stage 6: once they finish the book
"YEEESSS. FEEL MY PAIN."
admit it, we've all done this.
my friend is currently reading the infernal devices trilogy (she's on clockwork princess *sobs*) so thats where the inspiration for this post came from! what are some of the stages you go through to get your friend to read a book?
