Booking Through Thursday (5)
Do you carry books with you when you’re out and about in the world?
And, do you ever try to hide the covers?
I almost always have at least one book on me when I'm out and about. I don't tend to hide the covers though. Once a guy walked the length of a train carriage to try to read the back of my copy of Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton, so I do occasionally pick strange titles just to see what people will do...like What do you say to a Naked Elf? by Cheryl Sterling (which is a great read!). And it's impossible to forget all the commuters attempting to hide their Harry Potters with a paper :)
However, there are covers out there that I would be embarrased to be seen reading, like this for example. I have the first book in the series, and I'm now putting off reading it because I really don't like this cover. It's just too much and I do not want to have to explain what I'm reading on the bus, especially if there are people with kids.
