Booking Through Thursday asks a random question to bloggers each week. This week’s question:
Do you bring the book(s) you’re reading with you when you go out? How? Physically, or in an e-reader of some kind? Have your habits in this regard changed? (I know I carried books with me more when I was in school than I do now–I can’t read while I’m driving to work, after all.)
I used to always carry a paperback book in my purse. I now carry my Kindle everywhere. I take it with me to the bathroom, on the way to the kitchen, walking to the mailbox or down the street, and if I ever leave the house. I still read paperbacks around the house and have them stashed everywhere, but my Kindle is nice because it only requires one hand. I don’t text or read while driving, but if I’m stuck at a long light or waiting in the parking lot – you can be sure that I’m using my Kindle.
I used to get in trouble for reading at the table or out with friends. Supposedly, it was “rude”. But since the smartphone came about, no one seems to care if I do it now. They’re all too busy checking Facebook or tweeting.
