Booking Through Thursday asks this week:
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, I carry books with me all the time. Usually I even have a spare paperback in the vehicles I use, for when I finish up the one I am currently reading. I am at the library at least once a week, and keep a bookcase full of paperbacks that I find at garage sales.
I try to rotate crime novels, horror, western, sci-fi, fantasy, thrillers, action, and general fiction. Sometimes I will even pick up a classic, a biography, or even (gasp) a random book by an author unknown to me.
I do not try to hide the covers. Sometimes someone will see me reading something and ask me about it, which brings up a discussion of authors who write similar books. The discussion will lead to new books for me to explore, which I would not know about otherwise.
