Dictionary Definition : The Fionacus-Grammaticus-Childicus is probably the youngest species known to the LC universe. Although she is one of the more advanced species in her own world (highous schoolicus), she can often be found asking questions about many things in the LC forum. This species of homo sapien is also known to be slightly over-excitable in the chatbox, sometimes to the point of throwing shoes. Much like a young puppy, she can be hyperactive and irritating - and yet, somehow, she can extremely lovable too.

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Definitely those who cannot understand that reading is useful and a pleasure, and instead believe that reading automatically makes you uncool. Those are the worst.

Dictionary Definition : Kelsey-- Frequently called "Kels," this female specimen of Homo Sapiens belongs to the Literary Cabinet universe. Although she is a young member, she has shown her maturity to be above other species, sometimes. "Kelsey" can behave quite crazy in her own right. One of her most noticeable traits is paranoia and knowledge of trolls.

Reading classics doesn't make you better than everyone?! lol! Just kidding. I do think that it takes a certain level of intelligence to transcend the time barrier, but it doesn't make one super special.

Reading isn't for geeks. Reading is for people who want to broaden their horizons and better themselves. Anyone who thinks otherwise obviously doesn't read much.

I don't mind when someone likes a book and talks about it often. However, that is within reason and nOt lyke DIS da best book iN dA wOrLd!!! lol omfg!!!1 every three seconds.

I want to punch my guy friends who think reading is uncool and stupid.
But a big "HA!" to them, since I'm the one with the big vocabulary and good English skills.

There should also be an option for none.

The 1st option: if it applies to anyone, they are too snobbish and immature to discuss it, let alone be irritated by it.

The 2nd option: it is their choice and right to believe whatever they like, as long as they are not rude. I for one believe I am right in reading and I don't have to justify it to anyone.

The 3rd option: I like seeing people impassioned with reading, even if they read the same book all their lives. I am so glad no one voted for it. I am guilty as charged too.

The 4th: too nagging!

So I went with the second as I hate the stereotyping of people with silly adjectives as "geeks".
