It's natural for people to exaggerate their love for their hobbies, but I guess reading is especially obnoxious because it's tied with the "I'm so quirky/intelligent" self-perception. I do read a lot, but it's not really about the "books", it's about the stories. I like stories. I don't care if I read it on a kindle, a physical novel, or even a visual novel game. Video game, series, whatever.

Of course books are nice as a way to unplug from technology, as opposed to other mediums of storytelling, and I own more books and impulsively buy more than I care to admit. But really, it's not about the book itself.

Also I never get people who like the "smell" of book. I honestly hate buying used books because the smell makes me gag. I'd rather have a crisp, fresh, new book without the smell, rips, scribbles, tatters, and such.

"It's natural for people to exaggerate their love for their hobbies"

I wouldn't say this is true of all people, I've lived most of my life underplaying how much I like most of my hobbies to not seem like a complete nerd. For example, I would read the whole summer reading list and about the only people who knew were my teacher and my mother.

But then people seem more into having nerd cred then they used to be, I'm still shy about my hobbies sometimes.

Same. As a result I'm not as heavy a reader as I used to be, since I have access to more (and better) TV, movies, and games. And what I do read is mostly on my tablet, because it's never been about the physicality.

Same, yes, the used book smell makes me want to put the book down and get a brand new copy. It's probably all dusty too, and dust being mostly human skin and all...

Whereas for me, I hate the smell of unused modern books (as in, published in the last couple of decades). It's so.. chemical.

The dustier and mustier, the better for me. Like I'll never forget the time some friends snuck me into their university library. They almost had to get crowbar to pry me back out!
