Booking Through Thursday

No, not THAT kind of R.I.P.

Reading. In. Public.

Do you do it? Why or why not?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

- Of course I read in public. Anywhere I go, the books go with me *grin*. When I have to wait in a line, books will keep me company while I wait for my turn to purchase my products. Or when I have to wait for someone in the "waiting room", so that the family members can go in and for a personal check up appointment, then I will sit and read to pass the time. And when the sun is nice and warm, I will read outside in public to enjoy that weather.

So yes I will read in public :)

I don't understand people who don't read constantly.... I saw a lady at the library check out ONE BOOK today.

Of COURSE I read in public! How else do you surreptitously spread the word about books you love?

I can read outside in public. It's not usually as distracting to me.

Alice Teh said...

Hello Julia, me too! Me too! No books, no go... LOL.

And Marianne, my government officials says that Malaysians on average read ONLY 2 books a year. 2 books in 365 days. I can't believe what I read. I don't understand it...

Melody said...

Hey Julia, of course we have the same answer! LOL.

Happy BTT!

Julia said...

literary - Glad to see that we both agree :)

Marianne - I'm so with you! I just don't understand it either. And you know, why just go with one books and not more? The more the merrier

Susan - You're so right. Reading in public does help to spread the words about the books that we love :)

Kristy - Loud noise can distracted me, but if I'm caught up with the story, everything around me is ignore :)

Alice - it always so nice to see you here, always enjoy your input. wow Malaysians read average of only 2 books? *shake head* don't understand.....

Melody - Hey it always nice to see you here, buddy! *wink* hehehe
