Do you carry books with you when you’re out and about in the world?

And, do you ever try to hide the covers?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the commentsβ€”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. πŸ™‚
