Yes, you can get by the way you're doing it just fine. In fact, I recommend it. Books put bad thoughts in your head, they make you question the Establishment, and we can't have that, being that the Establishment was founded by the Goblin King after Jennifer Connelly didn't fall in love with him and his power ballad "Within You."

Still Charlemagne was illiterate and that didn't stop him conquering places, just think if he could read he'd have ended up sitting around in Aachen just reading stuff instead of doing something useful like killing people. Or the businessman in the Somerset Maugham story who would have still been a parish verger if he had been able to read instead of being a rich bastard. Therefore it is clear that reading is bad and should be banned. Or something like that.
