Question of the Week:
When meeting with friends, do your discussions usually turn to books? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)
Oh my goodness YES!! LOL!!
They KNOW the conversation will definitely end up about books when I am involved. :)
Some friends do not read, but they get involved too by simply listening and sometimes ending up actually reading a book.
I fall somewhere in between talking about books and not these days!ReplyDelete

Thanks for commenting, Jessica.
Sadly, my answer for this week's question is simply "no." I don't know anyone that reads books.ReplyDelete
That is sad.Delete
Thanks for commenting, Billy.
It depends on the friends.ReplyDelete
True, but I always end up talking about them and draw others in. :)Delete
Thanks for commenting, Kathy.
I don't have that many bookish friends unfortunately but that makes the blogging community extra special!ReplyDelete
The blogging community is AWESOME!!Delete
Thanks for commenting, Katherine.
Oh, you're SO lucky to have people around you who are interested in books!! I don't have ANYONE. :( I do have a few female friends, but they're not into books. However, I DO have quite a few ONLINE buddies -- like YOU! -- whom I CAN discuss books with! Thank God for the Internet!! Lol.ReplyDelete
One of the BEST things about book blogging is the camaraderie among us book bloggers! You're pointed this out yourself, and it's SO TRUE!! This keeps me blogging, time after time!
I'm SO HAPPY to have you as a book buddy, Elizabeth!!
Have a GREAT weekend, and thanks for sharing!! (Wish I could have some of your pesto bread in person, though....lol.)
HUGS!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
HUGS...it is nice to have in-person people to talk to about books, but ONLINE buddies are awesome too.Delete
Thanks for commenting, Maria.
How fun for you! I pretty much never want to bring up books with non-reader friends because I'm too much of a people pleaser, and even with reader friends it seems we end up talking about other things instead. Thank goodness I have the internet for bookish discussions. Have a great weekend. - KatieReplyDelete
It is difficult sometimes, but I do manage to get everyone to listen.Delete
Thanks for commenting, Katie.
lol I so wish I can sway my other friends who don't read into book conversations, but sadly they would hear none of that discussion with us they either excuse themselves or go into another conversation with another person. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog hop Elizabeth.ReplyDelete
Ha ha....that happens at times too, but most of the time they just listen.Delete
Thanks for commenting, Katiria.
Always great to inspire others to read!ReplyDelete
Thanks for commenting, Nicki.
It seems any topic I talk about with my friends reminds me of something in a book I read so of course I start talking about the book. My friends usually aren’t surprised by this lolReplyDelete
LOL...sounds like me.Delete
They know better, and KNOW chats always go back to books or references to things in books.
Thanks for commenting, Jolene.
Your friends sound really nice! I'm glad that they let you talk about your interests even if they're not necessarily involved in the reading community. Those are the types of people who make the best friends to be around and interact with! It's awesome that sometimes they'll actually get inspired to read the book as well - that goes to show how influential the reading community can be!ReplyDelete
Yes....it is wonderful.Delete
Thanks for you lovely comment, C InkBlottings.
Thanks for commenting, Chrissy.
That's great you have friends who read at least sometimes. Mine don't :-(ReplyDelete
It is nice, Lynn.Delete
Thanks for commenting. Nice to see you stopped by.
My friends are big readers, but unless it's something we've all read, we don't talk much about them. I love the blogging/booktube community though; we can talk books all day long!ReplyDelete
Oh yes....you cannot beat the book blogging community.Delete
They are the BEST and nicest group of people EVER.
Thanks for commenting, Dani.
