Booking Through Thursday: Discuss
Question July 8, 2010: Do you have friends and family to share books with? Discuss them with? Does it matter to you?
Answer: I DO!!!!!!!!!! It matters VERY MUCH!!!! I love to read-it's one of my favourite things to do. I also love to talk. So talking about books is, well, awesome!!
In university I didn't know very many people who LOVED to read for fun-or many who didn't have time for it because school was so busy.
Since moving to Toronto I've met many people who love to read and it's simply wonderful. I'm part of a great book club with ladies who at one time were strangers but who I now consider friends. I love our discussions because I like being offered different viewpoints because I end up appreciating so much more than I would have on my own.
I also work with a number of people (who I also consider friends) who enjoy reading and we often share our reading experiences. In fact, my friend Meghan and I decided we would read A Fine Balance because we had both heard so much about it and though it would be fun to discuss it together! (I am 3/4 of the way Meghan-this weekend it will be done-I PROMISE!!)
My family likes to read to too, and especially since I started this blog we've had a lot more book related discussions-both on the blog and off (like in real life...well the phone counts as real life right?).
How about you? Do you have people to discuss with Do you like to discuss books or do you prefer to mull things over yourself?
