>>18150454
keeping track of how many books you read is so you can compare yourself to others and enforces the idea quantity matters
authors vary greatly so to have one above all else is stupid same with books

>> No.18150464

>>18149700
>Having a "favorite" writer who you feel defines you and your tastes

Stop turning books into a personal brand of identity politics. Liking Borge doesn't make you interesting or smart, it just shows that you still try and define yourself through the products you buy and media you consumer. You are just like everyone else, just with an inflated ego and a fetish for outward displays of traditional intellect.
