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 am a proud book reader. If I am doing anything other than running to the store... my Kindle, or the current book I am reading, is tucked in to my purse. I don't like carrying around a large handbag, but recently purchased one large enough to put in my Kindle (and subsequently almost any book).
Back in my 'Mom Taxi' days, I would keep a 'car' book stashed under the seat. I never knew when I would have to wait, so usually kept something light and fluffy handy...a guilty pleasure book.
Now, however, I won't walk out the door without a book in hand, if I can avoid it!
As for hiding the cover? Back in middle school, I made paper bag covers for the books that my girlfriends and I passed around...Judy Blume's 'Forever' was one of them. Definitely didn't want my mom to see I was reading that! But now? Nope...proud of what I read, so I don't feel the need to hide the covers. Though, I won't be carrying around a bodice ripper - It's very easy to identify those books...and they are not something I like to read. One sad thing about the Kindle... you don't get to show off the beautiful cover art that is on most books these days!
Wow... long answer for a short question... go figure! What about you? Are you always with a book? Do you carry with pride?
