that chick thinks she's book, but she's totally hacked.
Did you know there HAVE been books printed since the fifties and the new ones are cool? They have them so anyone can understand them. Books can be about video games, sex, drugs, sports, people, pretty much everything. They come with cuss words, funny characters and you might understand some more of you those weird things...that's right. Words.
"Doood, books are lame and my perception of them doesn't exceed that of a cingle-celled organism."
"Doood. You used like those big-wordy thingies."

In school, some books that I had to read that I hated were The Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, the list goes on for quite a while.
Books can provide such wonderful escapes. They are like your own little sanctuary and you have a wide choice to lose yourself in. :)
