How does one discuss literature with people outside of the Internet or an academic environment?

I'm not an erudite reader, but I find it difficult to discuss books with my friends. Even discussing popular fiction, the conversation rarely goes further than, "Oh, X is such a good character." All I want is to share the meaning of reading with another human being.

I'm not trying to seem like some big brain asshole, I just wanna discuss what I read. That's why I come on here. Maybe I just need new friends.

We still live in a state of affairs where reading is looked at as a healthy habit, despite most people not practicing it. So, when you mention that you've been reading something to the average person, they'll feel that you're gloating, hence the usual rejection of the topic of literature.
