Musing Monday (Nov. 2)

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about social reading… 


How much of your reading do you share with others (outside of blogging?) Do you belong to a book or library club? Do you trade books with friends? Do you tell others what you’re reading?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

 


Most of my book socialising, outside of blogging, revolves around book club. Aside from the sharing of reading the same book every month, we take time every meeting to share and show off any other books we’ve read during the month.

I’m lucky in that two of my best friends, my two booky friends at that, are in this book club too, so I usually have a fair idea what they’re reading most of the time (plus, now that Wendy has a book blog, I can spy – I mean READ – that too).

My other booky friend, Renae, is the one who I probably share most of my books with. By now I have a pretty good idea as to what she likes and doesn’t like and – since she just lives around the corner – it’s easy to just drop off books once I’m done with them. One day she’ll throw them back at me and I’ll never get out from under the pile.

For the most part I usually only share what I’m reading if someone asks or I think they’ll particularly like the book.

No my blogger buddies are my book people. I dropped out of book club, and only my one girlfriend and mom read books, but thet don't read as fast as I do. Although my girlfriend have somewhat similiar tastes.
