Don’t forget that you can find previous Tuesday Talks posts right here.
And this week’s topic is:
When you notice someone reading a book you’ve read, do you comment?
This totally depends on the circumstances! If it was on a bus then hell no because how creepy is that? HEY I’VE READ THAT, IT’S BOSS! However, I have said it to friends and people I’ve met on holiday etc.
I’ll also only ever comment when I’ve enjoyed the book because you don’t want to put a dampener on someone’s reading experience like, AH THAT BOOK WAS POO. So, if I enjoyed it, I will definitely let them know.
Funny enough, I work at a school and in the school to promote reading to children we have little signs dotted around saying ‘Miss …. is reading ….’ and we update them regularly. I noticed the other day that a teacher was reading Wonder by R.J Palacio and I was like ‘ooo, it’s gonna be a film and I really wanna read it, what’s it like?!’
So I kind of comment whether I’ve read it or not if I know the person or if they’re chilled out and not on their daily commute or something!
What about you?
