I am not your Manic Pixie Bookworm. My pastime is not your sexual preference. If I’m sexy when I read, it’s no more sexy than when I eat or breathe or fart or do any of those other things that mark me out as human. Now can we please shut up about how hot it is for a girl to like books, because I’m trying to finish this chapter.

I Am Not Your Manic Pixie Bookworm

my other favorite bit:

I’m a 31 year old woman with an English Lit degree, of course I read. I don’t need a prize to congratulate me for doing something I learned when I was four.
