Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about tidy reading around people.
When is it inappropriate to read in front of others? Is it ever appropriate?
This is an interesting one. I have no issue reading in public. When I took the bus, I read while waiting for it. Could not read on the bus because I got motion sick, but I would if I could have. I read while waiting for someone to pick me up or when I drove more of course while waiting for others. I will read when camping out with friends, I will read just about anytime.
There are exceptions of course. Like when camping if everyone else is talking, I join in the conversation it is only when everyone is either settling in for sleep, or doing their own reading that I will take out my book and read. If I have house company I wont read unless they are reading as well. Because I find it just a little rude. Therefore, I think its fine to read in front of others you should just use your ettiquete judgment.
