Yes, it does. .................................................. .................................................. .......................................
If he reads ONLY such books, then it is worth considering = D
And yes, it is worth being able to close bad books. You can start reading anything (preferably diverse in genre and intellectual component, as mentioned above, perhaps something will be found), but if you feel that the book is stupid, close it. Over time, you will stop paying attention to one-day books, as well as to films of this kind. You will have a taste. But only if you develop your mind, and not vegetate in the simple.
Read, but learn to isolate the important and the necessary, and give preference to this, the rest is in the trash
"Very valuable discoveries can be made in both Pascal's Thoughts and Marcel Proust's soap commercials
Although, personally, I would prefer soap commercials than their works.
If a person is not a literary critic, and has not found himself in a situation where these books are his only entertainment, then yes, such a person is definitely stupid, break all ties and contacts with him.
Thinking in stereotypes is much worse than reading books by Olga Buzova. One hundred forty characters one hundred forty characters one hundred forty characters one hundred forty characters one hundred forty characters ....
No way! Why not admit that the person reading Buzova is just a fan of her other projects? Why not let .... Etc. He learns everything in communication, of course, in how he works with this person, how he lives. It is from this that one should draw conclusions. Although, of course, if I want to meet a girl who reads such literature, I’m afraid I’ll be stupid, because I can’t keep up the conversation
If a person reads, that's already good.
Well, the concept of "stupid" is generally very relative.
Give a detailed answer to make it interesting to read. The answer cannot be less than 140 characters.
Without a doubt, the choice of a book to read shows the taste and intellectual development of a person. But it also happens that the author is not yet famous and not popular in literary circles, but he has some potential that can make him a name. In this case, you should periodically pay attention to unknown books on the distant store shelves. You may stumble upon a future Dreiser or Fitzgerald!
But it sometimes happens that a book lying in the most conspicuous place, which is hung with the labels "customer choice" or "hit 20 @@ of the year", does not represent itself nothing. After such reading, some misunderstanding remains about the plot and the time spent on it. To avoid this, you need to pay attention to the author and publisher. If for some reason you do not like a person, his behavior in society, his statements and, in general, the train of thought, then you should not waste time and money on his creation (the same about publishing).
Z.y ... There are exceptions. But if you are an ordinary reader and not a literary critic from a fashion magazine, then these "exceptions" will not tell you much.
Absolutely not. Someone will find something useful for themselves in a simple parable, while someone from a philosophical treatise will not endure anything but stupidity. Read, think, compare. The choice is only your own business.
