Previously known as Monday's Question of the Day, Books For Thought is a feature where I post a book-related question up for discussion. I am open to all opinions and enjoy reading diverse comments from my lovely followers. I look forward to picking your minds!

When you are called a nerd for loving books, how do you feel?
My Response: One word -- annoyed. I've been called that so many times, I lost count. They mostly use it as a back handed compliment of a 'pretty nerd.' Gotta just love my husband for coming up with that one. What I want to know is, when did it become nerdy to read? Reading is a great thing. It helps stimulate your mind, instead of letting it go to waste with all the distractions we have today. So, when I hear that association with bookworms, it irks me to see the ignorance in our society. We urge children to read, but when adults and teens have an addiction to books, we are called nerds? I just don't get it. Can someone please explain it to me?
What are your bookish thoughts?
