So right now I’m participating in the live twitterchat of The Bloggess‘s book club. Why is this relevant, you ask? Because she just referenced graphic novels, that’s why. What do graphic novels have to do with anything, you ask? Fancy you should ask, actually, because I have a funny story about graphic novels.
Back in college, I was at a party with a lot of people who already had jobs and I really wanted to impress them. So, when someone asked me if I read graphic novels I quickly agreed that I indeed did. For the entire conversation, I was under the impression that graphic novels meant, you know, books that are rather, graphic in nature. Think, Fifty Shades of Grey or something. It wasn’t until the next morning when I was discussing this with my best friend Drew that I realized the mistake I made. Oops!
