Musing Mondays {3-16-09}

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)

If I'm just "out and about", I'll look to see what the title is, but won't start a conversation. If it's in a bookstore or library, yes! I don't know why the setting makes the difference to me. I wouldn't mind if someone started a conversation with me about whatever I happened to be reading at the time. No one does around here though. I think that's what lead me to blogging and the book related online communities to begin with. I'd love it if someone sat down next to me and started a conversation about a book!

I agree -- it is always nice for someone to ask but it so rarely happens. I would if it is a book I know or interested in and they don't seem to weird or involved in reading.

I usually will strike up a conversation with a stranger if it's in a bookstore or library. Frankly, I never see anyone reading outside of that setting so the rest wouldn't apply.

I don't know if I would strike up a conversation with a person outside of the library or bookstore, I guess it would depend upon how approachable they seem.
