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)

I am a psycho... I can't help it. I absolutely do talk to random people about what they're reading. Mostly, it's only if I have read the book already. I'll ask so what do you think so far? or Where are you by? And then of course, I'll give a two thumbs up sign or a meh if it wasn't so good. That kind of thing.

While in New York - I was totally harassing strangers on my subway rides since they do a lot of reading while commuting to work. I don't get that here in Miami. But I do harass most of my co-workers about what they're reading or if they've read anything good and so forth. I've even coerced them all into having a lunch hour book club once a month. It's funny that I've become their go-to girl for books to read and so forth.

So yes, I absolutely am a random person book stalker. What can I say? I love to read and I love to see people reading.

lol, nah, you're not a psycho. You're friendly! I wish I were brave enough to do that.

Not psycho -- just a extroverted book lover -- and there are not many I'm finding today! I do tend to talk more if it is a book I know something about or something I want to know more about. And don't you just love being the "go to" person for books? I'm that person for a few of my friends and I love it.
