13 Tips for Turning a Non-Reader Into a Reader

Reading

Many people have that one friend who doesn’t connect to books like they do, doesn’t treasure the smell of the page or the pleasure of losing an afternoon to the written word. It can be frustrating, if only they’d read that book you recommended they’d never go back to a life without bookshelves. Luckily, Barnes & Noble gives some tips for converting your less literary inclined friends into bibliophiles. Try writing a book yourself, telling your friend you wrote them into it, and have them read it to see what you wrote about them. Or reply to their text messages with only obscure literary references, and have everyone else you know do the same. Better yet, make them wait in a waiting room for hours with nothing to do and hand them a book. Read all 13 hilarious tips here.
