Musing Mondays - Other People's Books

If you'd like to play along on Musing Mondays, just click the button above to join in.

This week’s musing asks…

Do you like looking at other people’s bookshelves?

My answer...

Yep, I admit it. I'm nosy. I always have to snoop, but is it snooping when the bookshelves are on display? Nah, I'm just curious :)

I do this when I'm on vacation and at the beach, too. I always look to see what people are reading. Sometimes I want to go up to them and ask if they like a book, but I'm not that pushy. I don't do that. I know people like to read without interruptions. At least that's how I am. Of course with my Nook, I'm kind of cheating because now nobody can look and see what I'm reading. LOL

funny pictures - Uh oh!

  1. I'm a little snoop dog too. I like to see what others are reading and add to my TBR list.

  2. I like to look too! I always see if I can see what others are reading.

  3. I love to see what other people are reading... its like it gives me a peek into who they are....

  4. Another problem with the Evil E-Readers. You can't see everyone else is reading! that is not fair!
    I was just reading an article were a guy wrote how upset that made him poolside at a resort. the e-reader are stealing his fun!

  5. I'm just like you in this respect. I do lament the disappearance of books in favor of ereaders because if a conversation is to start it's more awkward. It's probably more graceful to start by saying, "I notice you're reading (insert book title), how is it?" as opposed to, "What are you reading?" The latter sounds more intrusive.

    Tossing It Out

  6. Yes, I look at people's books shelves. I like to see what people are reading or have read, or in some cases like pretending they've read.
