Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Do you always have a book with you?
This used to be a yes. I used to never leave the house without a book in my bag, even if I was going somewhere where I was very unlikely to read. And then I started carrying a smaller bag…and this magic device in my pocket with endless access to entertainment!
I still carry a book a lot of places, and generally if I’m going to be stationary for an extended period of time I’ll make sure I have a book on hand. I still bring a book to work every day. I don’t do much reading out and about in the world, but the truth is, I don’t think I ever did. I do seem to do far less reading in line at grocery stores now. But I tend to do all my blog reading on my phone now, so at least some of that time is going to that.
I think I did read more when I carried a book everywhere–but I’m not sure about the cause and effect here. Do I read less because I don’t carry a book as much anymore, or do I not carry a book because I’m not in situations with opportunities to read as much anymore? Conundrum.
Do you carry a book with you? Or is reading something you do at home?
