Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  2. I love reading, but don’t really tend to read in public, not because I wouldn’t, just because it never seems to fit in to my schedule. I don’t hide books though, I’m proud to be a reader. I do read sometimes on the phone now, although I miss the smell of books!

  3. There are some books I’m embarrased to be seen reading in public but most of the time it doesn’t bother me. I don’t mind strangers seeing me read chick lit but I cringe at the thought of my friends catching me!

  14. Here’s my answer: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/09/booking-through-thursday-got-books.html

    Speaking to a book-blogging community, I can’t imagine who would say no to always having a book on hand.

  15. I’m guessing there are mostly yes responses to the first question! It will be fun to read the responses to see the variations of the affirmative. 🙂
