Question – What Do You Tell People You Read?
A couple of weeks ago I posted my story of Jason and paperbag books. (Missed it? You can read it here.) Some of you commented that you are grateful for your Kindles because that way people don’t have to know what genre of books you read nor do they have to look upon the covers we covet but they look at with disgust. *mumbles* crazy prejudice people…
Some are loud and proud to read smut and aren’t afraid to shout about it but some of you just don’t want to deal with the masses who just don’t understand our love. And I don’t blame you. Sometimes you just want to get on the bus and read, not defend your choices.
I want to touch on the Kindle thing here today. If you are reading on your Kindle and people ask you what you are reading, and you are shy about your chosen genre or are not in the mood to enter a debate on your lunch hour, what do you tell people? What is your answer to their query?
If you don’t want to admit that you are reading romance-type books, what do you tell people you read?
