Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about talking to strangers…
We were all warned as children to 'never talk to strangers', but how do you feel about book-talk with random people? When you see people reading, do you ask what it is? Do you talk to people in the book store or the library? Why or why not? What do you do if people talk to you? (question courtesy of Dena)
I'm not really the person likely to start a conversation with a stranger, but if someone talked to me I would answer and if asked about my opinion I would give it honestly but not in too much detail so as not to bore the asker!
No I don't ask what people are reading, I might try to read the title if the cover is interesting but I would not be too obvious about it.
Sometimes I get approached at the bookstore about a book or an author or asked for a recommendation about a certain genre and I would reply as breifly as possible again not to bore the person! If the person is intersted in more details then I would give it.. If I'm reading a book and someone asks about it I would be happy to talk or discuss it!
So what do you do in these circumstances?!
