Being a book reader isn’t quite the same as being an avid reader. When you are seriously into reading, you improve both reading and writing skills, and you end up becoming one of the word nerds that are very few in number.
If you’ve evolved into a word nerd, then it must be a beautiful feeling, and not many can relate to it.
So, for the amusement of all you word nerds out there, we have compiled some of the best tweets about writing, books, and some of the fine authors. If you take the label ‘nerd’ as a compliment, we are sure you’d thoroughly enjoy this article. Do share your opinion in the comments, we will be waiting for them!
