Here is this week’s Booking Through Thursday:
Do you carry books with you when you’re out and about in the world?
And, do you ever try to hide the covers?
Yes, I carry books when I’m out and about. Of late, when I go to substitute teach, along with my lunch in my backpack, I carry Year’s Best SF 12 to read on my breaks.
It’s a short story anthology from 2006 and includes Nancy Kress, Joe Haldeman, and Ian MacLeod.
Short stories are really good for the hour or so of planning period time I usually have available for myself. Much better than reading the same copy of Wired or Time or Newsweek found in the teacher’s lounge.
No, I don’t hide the covers of books I carry around, unless it’s a big stack in the shopping bag from the bookstore I’ve bought them from.
