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?
It’s always appropriate to read when you’re alone. For sure. And I think that there are definitely times when it’s appropriate to read in front of other people. In college, when I was in a large group of people, and it was super casual, I would often have a book. I would read. I read when my husband is in the room now, and he’s on the computer or watching television or both. There are times when I read in front of people now – when we’re hanging out and it’s casual and it’s not people that I very rarely see. I read on the subway, on the commuter rail, on airplanes. I don’t read in front of people when I’m at a dinner party or at the theater or something like that.
