Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?
Absolutely…what avid reader, book blogger, book reviewer, book lover doesn’t?
But to talk and discuss books with at this stage in my life, no, not many. Matter of fact, thinking about it, I could count on one hand how many I have. I guess that’s why, when I see a random person with a book, sitting in a doctor’s office. while on vacation, even once in a bank waiting to talk to the manager, and I see someone with a book, I will initiate a conversation about what they are reading and then the conversation continues. BB, before blogging, it used to really bother me not to have someone to share and/or talk about what I was reading, especially if it was a 5 star book.
I used to have a lot of people to talk with about books years ago. When my boys were small and in school and/or when I worked outside of the house, I came in contact with many people who read. During that chapter of my life, I was very involved and active in volunteering with the school, church and local politics. However now, and being disabled, my circle has dwindled. That’s why when I found this book blogging community three years ago, not knowing it existed, I was ecstatic and wanted to be a part of it. And I can honestly say, I enjoy every minute of it to this day as I did when first joining and have no plans of leaving.
What about you? Do you like to talk about books you read? In your RL, do you have readers in your circle?
