BTT: In Public

Do you carry books with you when you’re out and about in the world?
And, do you ever try to hide the covers?

Nowadays I rarely carry books with me except to and from the library. And during the actual carrying, they usually do stay hidden in a bag... But not with emphasis on "hidden" - just because it would be uncomfortable to carry a pile of loose books!

Back in the days before mp3-players and mobile phones - when I still also travelled more - I would bring a book for example on a train journey. I probably wouldn't choose one I'd feel a need to hide, though!

I guess the classic example would be hiding a novel in a school book or something. If I ever did that I've managed to forget by now!


  1. I read on my one knows whats lurking between the leather covers ;)

  3. Only when traveling.

    here's mine:

  4. I don't really carry books with me, except the bible to church meetings. BUT, I have been known to hide books that are in he living room when people are coming over. This is because I don't want people asking to borrow them, I never get any back!! That might be a good question for one of your Thursdays. Do people ever get books back that they have loaned. I'm trying to think if you have ever asked that, I can't remember.

  5. Ginny, the questions come from Deb at; I just copy, paste, answer and link!

    I know what you mean, I have had a few books wandering off and never coming back too.

  6. have never read anything i needed to hide, and i too only carry books to and from the library in a canvas bag for comfort. the new header is beautiful, the colors are so brilliant the flowers look real and i keep waiting for the butterflies to flutter out in my face

  7. I usually have books in my car. I'm either taking them back to the book store to re-sell as used or bringing them from the book store to read.

    Your new masthead is very eye catching.
