Book Bullying Needs to End Now by Janiera Eldridge

Please help me welcome author Janiera Eldridge to Full Moon Bites with her post on book bullying.


In case you don’t know what book bullying is, it is when a person is put down for liking a certain book.

Yes, it’s ridiculous but it is happening. In fact, I’ve been book bullied myself and I’m sure many other book lovers have as well. As far as my personal experience, since it has been the “cool” new thing to not like Twilight or 50 Shades of Grey I’ve been called “tasteless” and “stupid”.

Now, book bullying actually happens more when a book becomes popular. There are actually people out there who think they’re cooler because they don’t like a book (yes, they need a life). It’s stunning to me that this happens because the cold, hard fact is: books are just entertainment! I’m an author, I tell stories, that’s it! I don’t take my job any more seriously than delivering a great, enjoyable read to readers.

No one should Judge another person by the books they read. You can’t learn everything you need to know about a person through the book they read because it is only something they do for fun. I know brilliant women who read erotica or romance without a plot because they simply want to escape. Life is tough enough, I don’t need everything I read to be as serious as my own life because then there would be no enjoyment in it.

I don’t hold my tongue for anything so if I don’t like a book, I’ll tell you. However, I’m always respectful and never assume my opinion is absolute because it is not. Also, if another person likes it, I’m not going to go after them for it. It is just a book and everyone has a right to their opinion. If everyone liked the same books it would get really boring, really fast.

If this blog post offends you, you might be a book bully so please STOP now. All book lovers should be able to read and talk about the books they love without being bullied.

Happy Reading!
