Avid Readers Share The Books They Wish Were Written By Other Authors

Sometimes covers, revivals and remakes top the original. A new spin on a classic can be the best way to make it fresh for a new generation or... it can be an UTTER disaster. It all depends on the person swinging the pen. Who hasn't wondered what classic authors could do with re-imagining the world's greatest tales?

Redditor _gham1 asked around to see who could best "cover" current author's works by asking... _If authors 'covered' novels, the way musicians cover songs, which covered novel would you be most excited to read?

PEACE & CARLIN

Tao Te Ching - George carlin

"Knowing who is an f-ING moron is intelligence; knowing that you aren't an f-ing moron is true wisdom."

"Those who know how life works do not speak. Those who speak are often corn-hole eating mouth breathers that deserve to be tossed into a volcano."

"A man with outward courage dares to die like an f-ing idiot; a man with inner courage dares to live and watch that arrogant a**hole get blown to smithereens."

WILL WOULD BE PROUD!

Romeo and Juliet by Lemony Snicket.

Dear Viewer,

If you entered this play with the hopes of seeing a light comedy, you would be better off searching elsewhere. This story may begin like a light comedy, when Romeo and Juliet meet and dance at Masquerade Ball, but don't be mistaken. If you know anything about the Montagues and Capulets, then you will know that no friendship between them will last.

In fact, within these scenes, the couple must deal with the horrors of murderous in-laws, poisonous drinks, poetry, and mail arriving late.

I am bound to tell the story of these tragic events, but you are free to exit this theatre and go to A Midsummer Night's Dream next week.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

AS A MANIC DEPRESSIVE I SAY... YAAAASSSSS!!!

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
