Cross-Under, Itulah Sebutannya

Dari artikel ini, saya baru tahu sebutan untuk orang dewasa yang gemar membaca buku anak/YA dan sebaliknya, anak-anak yang suka membaca buku YA dan konsumsi dewasa. Berikut nukilannya:

The Cross-Under. You are a grown-up who reads Y.A. or kids books, or a kid who reads adult books, and there is a place for you in society, finally. Your existence acknowledged after so many years, you no longer have to feel shame at your questionable reading habits but can instead bask in the admiration of book blogs and feel a part of the vanguard. You are not ruled by categories; you are a free thinker. When you were in elementary school a librarian told you a book was “Too old for you.” You read it anyway, and there’s been no going back. Suggested cross-under reads: For kids, Dickens, Fitzgerald, Salinger, Vonnegut, Harper Lee. For adults: Collins, Rowling, Alexie, Chbosky, Lowry.

Sepertinya saya menjadi orang dewasa yang suka baca buku “di bawah umur” karena sewaktu kecil suka merambah buku yang bukan peruntukan usia juga:D

  1. Dari kecil sampai sekarang saya suka baca buku anak, dunia anak itu indah, warna warni… Beda dgn dunia orang dewasa yang seperti memikul banyak beban. Seorang anak bisa menikmati indahnya suasana siang yang cerah dgn langit biru, tetapi orang dewasa terlalu sibuk untuk menyadarinya… Berarti istilah apa yg cocok untukku
