Musing Mondays.


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?

If I didn't read in front of other people I wouldn't get much reading done. However, after saying that, I am not rude ;I don't read in the middle of a conversation or when in someone else's home.
My own family in my house are readers and to read in the family setting is quite the norm. As we all read different types of books this habit sparks off some interesting conversations.

I agree with you Mog, I think it is only ever inappropriate to read when with company (excluding those whom you live with).
Likewise, if I didn't read in front of other people, I would be unlikely to do much reading at all.
I wonder though if the etiquette is different in other countries...?

Good topic Mog!

I agree with you that family reading is absolutely appropriate. Other than that, though, I try not to be rude.

Your lasagne looks so yummy! I'm off today and maybe I'll make it as a surprise for my husband.

Wow, Mog has the most beautiful eyes!

Enjoy your week!

Hmmm...maybe I am a bit rude. ;-)
But personally I think it is always appropriate to read, until proven otherwise. lol
