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?

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!!!

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
