Booking Through In Public

btt button

Do you carry books with you when you’re out and about in the world? And, do you ever try to hide the covers?

Yes, of course I carry books around with me all the time. Sometimes it maybe what I am currently reading, or a book of poetry or some scientific journal. I am a reader, and I do flaunt that fact to all and sundry! About hiding the covers, I do it if it is something explicit, or a romance novel. That is rare but nevertheless, I try to hide those covers! Maybe everyone does that...

Oh you naughty girl, you! I don't think I've ever hidden a cover. ;0)

Point taken on the explicit cover but thinking about it I never had ever covered a book before. :) And thumbs up for flaunting too! Be proud to be reading in public.

We wear our habit proudly!

I always have more than one. I am always prepared if I get stuck somewhere and finish the one that I was reading. Everything I Carry With Me

i've heard romance novel sales have gone up since e-readers came around -- you can now read romance without being embarrassed :)

I love sharing what I'm reading with others! your comment on romance novel covers made me smile because back when I used to read those, I would hide the cover. But I don't read romance novels anymore so its a non-issue now.

I do too. Check out my full answer for this week's Booking Through Thursday.

I only carry books when I think I'll have a chance to read. I don't hide the covers.

I bring my Nook or a book wherever I go. I figure you never know when you'll have some waiting time on your hands :)

As for covers, yes when I read romances more, I would hide the covers. Some were really embarrassing. LOL

Scientific journals? Sweet! There are a couple of pop-science magazines I read, but no actual journals like Nature. Which do you read?

Isn't reading like breastfeeding. Many different styles. I never got into the blanket thing, so I guess I would never hide a book cover, but being respectful of others is good I guess. You should see some music CDs covers.

Anyway, thanks for visiting me @Edwards Granddaughter.

Haha, I do think everyone hides a cover at some point!
