(SNOB WARNING) As Howard Beale might have opined in Network:

We hate, or at least deprecate folks who say, or maintain, –

1. “Have you read all these books?”

2.  “I had a whole set of the Encyclopaedia Britannica when I was a kid”.

3.  “I don’t read much but I’m reading The Road and it’s beautifully written.”

4. “I don’t read much but I’m reading the Harry Potter books and they’re great for adults.”

5. Houses in which the books obviously serve only as décor.

6. “Have you read Warnie’s life?”

7. Books as furniture.

8. (Quiz show genius) “I’m not so good on literature, but…………”

9. Houses without books.

10. We DO like the character in “Porridge” who said ‘I read a book once…it was green.’
