Musing Monday

Today's Musing Monday prompt:

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'm not much for social situations and I typically don't spend a lot of time shopping, so I rarely talk to anyone when I'm out. It's not because I'm stuck-up or anything like that, I just have a tendency to be introverted, so I don't bond well with others.

That being said, I do prattle on about books to my on-line friends. It is much easier for me to cypertalk with people than to be face-to-face. My very close friends know about my problem, so they don't give me a hard time. It is usually the "new" acquaintances I have a problem with.

So if you see me in the library or bookstore, don't be offended if I turn and run in the other direction - it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with me.

Love the graphic! And I do think many readers tend to be introverted ... and I find it easier to "talk" online than in person as well.
