Judging a Book

Today, I went to a bookstore with my family and my nephew went off to pick some books to buy. My sister was trying to encourage my nephew to read by randomly picking books off the shelf. I decided to recommend some of the books that I loved to read around his age. Then, the funniest thing happened.

My nephew commented that it was not a good book because it was too thick and heavy.

This brought back memories. My sister used to also judge a book by its weight. She used to teach me that the best book to buy is the thickest and fattest one. However, my nephew is now doing the opposite – buying the thinner and lighter book instead.

I found it funny – that my nephew was judging a book by its weight, just like his mom.
