Top Ten Reasons to Hate Books

The Top Ten

1 They're Boring

Video Games and movies are funnier than books

Most books take about 20 minutes to enjoy it.

The maker of this list said he dropped out of school. So he obviously doesn't have an education.

Read Finding Gobi. Trust me, it'll change your whole perspective on books

2 Adults Make You Read Them

I'm forced to read and it's annoying - BananaBrain

People need to decide which books they want to read. We all have our own tastes, and forcing someone to read a certain book sucks the fun out of reading. - Turkeyasylum

Turkey, I am really disappointed in you for falling for this list. Really disappointed. - Puga

Ugh, we have to learn stuff from books. Can't life just be all fun and games and TheTopTens? - Songsta41

I read on my own choice. My dad suggested the Wheel of Time and I'm glad he did. I didn't have to read it but I did. - Merilille

3 Only Nerds Read Books

That is so rude and mean! Books are what make life fun and interesting, everyone can find a book that is just right for them! Saying that only nerds read books is incredibly false. I hate it when people are mean to other people just because they read books! I am ashamed that anyone would say this ever! Books make you smarter whereas video games, movies, and other things make you dumber plus it ruins your eyesight. The real question here is why I'm typing this instead of getting lost in a good book. Why, if we didn't have books, we would all be depressed. When I'm sad, I get a books, forget about it, make up with the person who upset me, then we're friends again. Books don't make you competitive or anti-social. I am not saying that electronics are bad I cannot live without technology, but I can not live without books. Books make you smarter and enhance your vocabulary, so it's a win-win, right? I am so angry, you basically called more than half the earth nerds! I know 2-year-olds who ...more

This is just like saying all people who wear glasses are nerds - IdioticBeans

I'll take that as a compliment - Pokemonfan10

4 They Are a Waste of Paper

Now I'm convinced, you're a troll. - winner333

...Um need to look at this again this is wrong

Ever heard of E-books? Troll list.

*Cough cough* - Blight

5 They Are Overrated

Video games are even more overrated.

Not a reason to hate books. - Userguy44

Well at least books are better than school, and you know what Koolguy? You sit on your butt, playing video games all day.

I would agree because adults say that you should reed books because they are good but really they ain't and that makes them overrated

6 The Movie Is Usually Better

Usually the movies take half the things that happen in the books out. I mean, look what happened with Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. - WheresMyGuitarPick

Wrong partially, if you look at The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, Divergent and practically almost every teen-fiction movie/ book, the book is usually better than the movie. - Fandom_Lover

Yeah right. They ruin the story with the movies. They even take away characters... - Blight

Movies may have bad representations of books. But they are more appealing than books.

7 They Aren't Funny

When I dony read for a long time, books seem really boring, but when I read they are really cool and makes me live reading.

You OBVIOUSLY have never read The 39 Clues, Harry Potter and Percy Jackson... Probably just read Diary Of A Wimpy Kid saying its good cause there's idiot pictures

If you tried to fall asleep reading a book, you probably didn't pick the right book... - Turkeyasylum

I have fallen asleep on every book that I have read. I am NOT making this up - KoolGuy2218

You obviously never read books by Rick Riordan.

8 They Are Useless

Notice how everyone here defending books use proper punctuation, spelling, and grammar? That's because they read, they're frequently in contact those things, and therefore they're good at it. You are stupid, why? BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO READ! Books educate us, The make us smarter, if you read a lot during childhood we will be smarter as we grow. And one last thing, if you can't read then you won't be able to read ANY textbooks and then fail every class.

From: the 8-year old girl who's

Scarily smart for her age. Why?


Books being useless? Please. Books educate us and strengthen the smarts within our skulls. That's a disappointing and immature attitude of yours. - Levi-Ackerman

They will be useful for a person who has an IQ of 15. You know who I'm talking about. - WheresMyGuitarPick

Okay, I'm done feeding the troll now. I just wanted to get those few comments off my chest. - MontyPython

9 They Aren't Electronic

Dude, who cares? It doesn't have to be digital. Although I wish I could use my enchanted bow in Minecraft on you - GeneraIkenobi

I'm a millennial and I hate all the digital crap. I hate kindles, I hate everything robotic, I don't want to use virtual rubbish ever it looks like something that would give you a headache. The internet gets on my nerves half of it is full of boring crap. I rarely use my phone, I can't remember what year I last sent a text message, but my phone is on the bookshelf in the living room all the time anyway, I can't remember what month I last played a video game.

I hate you because you're not electronic. In fact, I hate myself! Why can't I just be electronic, I would be so much happier! - Songsta41

And therefore can't synchronize easily with gadgets! Damn, I have to copy manually...

10 There Are No Pictures

Have you ever heard of picture books? - Minecraftcrazy530

Ever read a comic book or manga -_-

Ever heard of a comic book or a manga troll leader? - Skullkid755

Some books have pictures but the good ones don't. - hollyeb13

The Contenders

11 You Look Smarter

I am not sure but I think this guy who made this list is joking around,just sayng. don't want to look smarter

Lol, I think this is a joke. - Blight

I want to look smarter - hollyeb13

12 Books Can Be Overpriced

Probably the only valid reason on this list to dislike books.

Internet and crappy phones cost way more

Heard of a LIBRARY, fool?

Yeah but video games are not. - KingFab

13 Books Make You Fat

100% Logic - Limeyy

Only if people sit reading them instead of being physical - GeneraIkenobi

I know, right? I'm so fat because I read books, if I used electronics I wouldn't be fat at all! (Sarcastic)

How does this make sense?

14 They Hurt Your Eyes

Only applies to e-books

If they hurt your eyes you are reading them on your phone or you need reading glasses - lbelle0527

Wha? How the heck?

No they don't, it's electronics that hurt your'e eyes.

15 They Are for Old People

I don't care about it I just want to read. - isywe

Just who do you think you are? I'm possibly the youngest TopTenners on the whole site but let me tell you something... I read books. - FennikenFan9

You have not read the books for kids...

Well you are older than me so, read a bookK - AnonymousChick

16 People Who Read are Not Just Gonna Keep Feeding the Troll.

People who read books aren't gonna give you more reasons to hate them.

We won't provide ou with more reasons to hate books.

17 Bugs Can Eat Part of the Pages

That isn't books' fault! *Prods Book lovingly* - Blight

I hate bugs, they are so crawly.

Yeah! They're so annoying! Bugs can't eat anything electronic! Anyways, electronics lag...but at least it's not bugs...


18 They Smell Sometimes
19 It Has the Twilight Saga
20 You Don't Know How Good They Are
