Haven't you considered that you might miss out on a wonderful experience by actively refusing to read books and stories?
I read a lot of books and scientific papers but not any random thing thing of the internet, can you afford reading everything that is trown at you ?
Afford? Do you view your time as currency?
"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing." and is this not rue?
