Rant: Reading In Public
This has in some ways put me off reading on the commute, I know I shouldn't feel like I'm being judged but it really annoyed me that someone can take the time out to comment on what I am reading.
There are also the people that feel the need to ask you every question under the sun about the book you are reading. An example of this happened last week when I was reading Rampant by Diana Petefreud, I got asked what the book was called, what it was about, who the characters were, where is was set, what part was I up to and if it had any sex in it? When I told the person what it was about they said they weren't interested in it and left, sorry but if I'm telling you about it atleast take some interest, after all it was YOU who asked me!
I shouldn't feel as though I am going to get judged each time I read on public transport. People should assume that because I am reading means they can ask me every question under the sun. I respect others privacy so why can't they respect mine?
