There are categories and categories of book lovers/ book readers we come across. The first category comprises compulsive book buyers whose love for books is so much that they pick up a new arrival as soon as it comes to the market and dig into it straight away and complete it as soon as they can. They also maintain a library that is stacked with books they have read. There is the second category of book lovers/ book readers like me who pick up a book with an intention of reading it but never manage to do so for what ever reason, with the result their library is filled with more of ‘unread’ books. The third category of book lovers don’t believe in buying a book they fancy but borrow from friends, read and return it in good condition, i.e. if they are the conscientious kind(I feel this is the best thing to do).
There is yet another category who make a pretence of loving and reading books ,more to impress people than for anything else. They can reel off titles of latest arrivals but question them about their genre or content, they draw a blank.
