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!!!

There are few conspiracy theories that annoy me lately as much as the QAnon conspiracy theory. Other than it posing a grave threat to our democracy, I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would take any of it as gospel. It's also remarkably easy to debunk––I'm still waiting for "the Storm" amid the ever-changing goalposts, by the way.

Turns out there are quite a few other conspiracies out there annoy the hell out of people, as we discovered once Redditor Sonic-the-edge-dog asked the online community,

"What's a conspiracy theory that annoys you due to how easily disprovable it is?"

The gift of hearing is an awesome thing. So many of us have the luxury to take it for granted.

How many 'first' sounds do we hear regularly that barely register for memory?

For those of us who are given sound after never having it or losing it and regaining it, have an appreciation most of us will never understand.

They embrace sound with such thankfulness and clarity. They can also tell you when hearing disappoints.

After all they have a build up of imagination in mind.

Redditor u/XxXNoobMaster69XxXx was hoping the formerly hearing impaired would sound off a bit by asking:

Ex-deaf people of reddit, what was the most underwhelming sound, respective to your expectations?

Schools are like their own little universes. A whole mini-society, complete with its own specific rules and customs, some of which make absolutely no sense whatsoever. You can't help but wonder what the faculty was thinking in some of these cases, or why no one stopped to think about why they were so weird.

People lie. The tagline of the popular TV series House, MD, was "everybody lies." That includes my parents and yours, folks.

Sometimes parents lie to their children to protect them. Sometimes they lie because it's easier than telling the truth. But unfortunately, not all parents are good people. Some lie to manipulate their children, or hold control over them. And that story is way more common than any of us would like to think.
