I am TOTALLY zoned out while I am reading!!
Frequently at work during my meal break. I am sitting alone reading a book and eating my lunch. That, it seems, is not a hint that I want to continue to read but a hint that I want to talk.
I only read when no one is around as reading in front of people means you are bored and want long chats about nothing or that's how they think.Merle..........
Definitely. Reading on the bus seems to be a trigger for strangers to start up conversations...
EC, put in earphones, even if they are connected to nothing. But even that does not stop the most determined.
Remy and Shama are quite familiar with that look when in my hands I have a book!
Oh that is so me... I pick up a book and become a magnet for people and pooches alike, grrr!
Delores; I plan to get this printed in poster size and hang it above my chair.fishducky; I know, I can hear the silence from here.Andrew; why do people assume that reading is only done because no one is talking to you? So they talk to make you feel better? My mum used to equate reading with doing nothing and would suggest I go outside and play.Merle; that's it exactly, to them a book doesn't mean what it does to us.Elephant's Child; and always when the story has just become really interesting.Lee; Angel is learning too, but he needs to learn the computer also means reading and stay off the table.Jaqueline, we all need do not disturb signs to paste across our foreheads when reading. Although that probably wouldn't work for pooches.
