I would talk about books all day, every day if I had a platform. However, I am part of a non-reading family & I have non-reading friends.😞I do have a coworker who reads, but it‘s a random sporadic habit for her occurring only every blue moon. I hang out in bookstores, libraries & coffee bars where other readers can easily be located.☺️ I belong to multiple book clubs. And Litsy serves as a lifeline...a viable connection to my persons. My tribe!💕

JoScho I am exactly the same way. I wish I had more reader friends in real life. 1y
SilversReviews Litsy is a life saver for talking about books even though I do have friends and sisters to chat books with. Thanks for joining in. 1y
PurpleyPumpkin I‘m the same as well! I know there‘s lots of readers out there, but none in my circle. At least not anyone who reads as much as I do. And I don‘t even think I read enough!🤷🏽‍♀️ 1y
Ddzmini All the time going to Disney in a dress from Beauty and the Beast with books on it.📚📚📚 I‘ll post a picture 1y
Nute @JoScho @PurpleyPumpkin @Ddzmini It‘s exhilarating when we can share our interests / hobbies / passions with other folks. We love books and reading so naturally that is what we like to talk about. I‘ve always wanted someone to spend a whole Saturday morning with going to bookstores and lunch dates that seem to revolve around what we‘ve been reading. In absence of that, I spend a lot of time with the wonderful Litsy community.🙂 (edited) 1y

1. Yes. I start reading with a particular goal/page count in mind that is determine by a chapter break.

2. Day and evening. Any hour as long as there is energy and attention span.😀

3. I either need quiet or what I call ‘reading music/reading sounds.‘ I can‘t tune out conversations around me even when not mine.

This was the first time that I have responded to one of these ‘Getting to Know You‘ post. So much fun!

RebelReader You shouldn‘t have told me that as now I will be tagging you to participate! 🤣 1y
Nute @RebelReader Right On!😂 1y
