If you like the "classics" then read them. If you like Snooki's book, then read it. There is no reason to be either proud or ashamed of what you are reading, it's whether you are reading at all.
Very true. While I am aware of what people deem 'socially acceptable' - I am learning not to let what other people may or may not think take away from me doing things I enjoy
It takes time... sometimes there's the initial blush of a response, but other times, oh well. They asked haha. (I'm a recovering people-pleaser)
I like a bit of just about everything, and just doing what you like regardless of other people's opinions is very freeing.
