Terry, Are You Reading a Book refers to a line of dialogue from a series of exploitables based on the "Safely Endangered" webcomic by artist Chris McCoy. In the comic, a bird reads a book and uses that information to request sex from another bird. The memes, however, change the name of the book and/or the information used.
On June 10th, 2016, the Safely Endangered posted a four-panel webcomic entitled "The Art of Seduction. The comic features two birds, one of whom reads a book called "The Art of Seduction." In the following panels, the bird sees another bird and says, "Hey, fancy a shag?" That day, Redditor  jungle-boogie posted the comic in the /r/comics subreddit, recieved more than 680 points (90% upvoted). When posted on the Safely Endangered Facebook,  the post (shown below) received more than 5,300 reactions, 830 shares and 300 comments in less than a month.
On December 10th, 2016, an anonymous 2chan user posted a variation of the comic in the /b/ messageboard (shown below, left). The following week, on December 23rd, the Facebook account sassysocialistmemes posted a variation that changes the book to "The Communist Manifesto." The bird then asks the third-panel bird if they "wanna seize the means of production?" The post (shown below, right) received more than 9,500 reactions, 1,000 shares and 580 comments.
On July 29th, 2017, Redditor dudewithlettuce posted the comic in the /r/indianpeoplefacebook subreddit. The post (shown below) received more than 600 points (98% upvoted).
Two weeks later, on August 15th, Redditor jyfnljk posted a variation of the comic in the /r/MemeEconomy subreddit, receiving more than 470 points (93% upvoted).
