How much of your reading do you share with others (outside of blogging?) Do you belong to a book or library club? Do you trade books with friends? Do you tell others what you’re reading?
Reading used to be a private enterprise because my attachment to books and tireless perusal were such bewilderment to friends. Books and reading never chug into the center of social conversation, moreover I didn’t want to anyway, because I do not want to oblige people to small talk about books at which they are not passionate. Like relationship, reading circle takes time to develop, and often emerges when I least expect. I have begun exchanging books with a couple people who are friends with whom I have coffee in the morning. Recently one person has heavily influenced my readings. We have exchanged book ideas, talk about books, and scour bookstores together. This blog has, to my surprise, reached out to friends with whom I never speak about books.
