Question of the day.

Hi people! 🙂

A few months ago, I asked you about some book or film that everyone else likes but you hate. Let’s do it the other way round today:

Is there a book, film, or TV show you like that everyone seems to dislike?

My answer:

While I often like things that are generally disliked, usually because people find them strange, just as I often do not like things that are popular with people because they’re boring and overrated, I’m having a hard time coming up with some specific book/film/TV show example. Probably because I mostly try to look for people who have similar tastes to me, and if someone does not, there’s little point in discussing how each of us dislikes what the other loves. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that I do like to read dictionaries, not only when I just need to look up a word, whereas people seem to find it very dire and boring. I think it’s very brain-stimulating, and definitely synaesthesia-stimulating for me. Sometimes I like to read through a few random words in a dictionary, either to learn something new or just because.

What’s something like this for you? 🙂
