“I Volunteer as Tribute!”: Stuff YA Readers Say

Stuff YA Readers Say

Remember the “Shit [People] Say” viral video phenomenon of 2011? The original “Shit Girls Say” spawned “Shit Yogis Say,” “Shit Hipsters Say,” “Shit New Yorkers Say,” and basically a tongue-in-cheek, in-the-know video for every niche group.

Except for bookworms! Thankfully, Scholastic’s YA-championing online community This Is Teen has resurrected the meme with their new video, “Stuff YA Readers Say.” And they’ve got our number.

“—and then, since he was dropped from a hovercraft, obviously the government is involved—”

“I totally referenced that in my fanfic last night.”

“What district are you all from?”

“Hey, do you want to see that movie on Friday?”
“Uh, have you even read the book yet?”

[giggling giddily while reading in the elevator]

“I am ’shipping you and Jason so hard right now.”

The video is listed as Part 1, so here’s hoping we see either another YA-centric video, or even an SFF one.

LOL, my husband actually used the word 'ship' in an actual conversation about two people we wanted to get together. And neither of us really qualify as young adults anymore.

That girl reading in the elevator cracked me up and I died laughing when she finished it and then pulled another book out of her purse: I ALWAYS plan ahead when I'm almost finished with a book and have to be out and about in public (I'm not an e-reader reader) - ESPECIALLY if it's part of a series (I was a binge reader decades before binge watching was even a possibility).

I don't say anything like this, but I definitely get eyed-as-crazy in public when I laugh out loud while I'm reading (or, yes - even cry...) :-D

I don't have cause to ride elavators a lot, but I do tend to read while I'm walking about, and yes, I talk to the book, yell at the book, and basically don't hide my emotions. I know city sidewalks are basically the definition of "public place," but there's also about a 92% chance I'll never ever see those people again.
