Our culture relishes ignorance. You were probably raised doing anti-intellectual activities like video games and other such mindless drivel. Its no surprise then that you have little like for intellectual topics.
I'm not insulting you at all but as a high school teacher I see this all the time. You've been caught up in the culture. Your subconscious is asking, "Where the stimulation? Where's the fun? This shit sucks and is no fun at all! No violence, no sex, no making fun of the geeks or ugly girls in those books...wtf??"
You're basically doomed unless somehow you stumble your way out of this. Pray, kid.
