I see alot of people reading on the train and it cheers me. It makes me happy to see so many people enjoying books in this day and age.

That is nice. I love to read, if only I had an unlimited book budget.

I know what you mean. I quite often try to see what people are reading. Then they get annoyed. Although I did once have a nice conversation about Emily Dickinson with a woman on First Great Western.

Is that Joanne Harris? The book I mean...

Sleep Pale Sister is on my Wish List : )
I'll try and see what people are reading too. There's a speed dating event at the Cheltenham Literary Festival this year - you get 4 mins to talk about your favourite authors with each person. Sounds like a great idea to me ...

Now that sounds like a good way to meet people. Books are a good way to get to know someone.

OJ says:

Gael, that sort of thing terrifies me - ask me for my favourite anything and I just clam up.... So many things interest me at different times, for whatever reasons. Vague, vague blah...

Kostika, I'm now trying to see what she's using as a bookmark. I found myself on a train the other day reading a book that had a Lambda Literary Award for lesbian fiction sticker on the cover - and realised I was using the latest Less Bounce sports bra catalogue as a bookmark. :cringe:

Gael says:

OJ - subtle : ) Is it just me being hyper-sensitive or does everyone get asked if they want a bag when they buy Diva?

kostika says:

i have that problem also. differcou mood means different fave. and i can never choose an overall fave of something.

OJ says:

They used to Gael, but I've not noticed it lately. Could be that I buy it infrequently or that I have the hide of a rhino.... And FYI I need to buy a new sports bra, it's not what I would call eye candy! Honest.

Kostika, I find that the people who can name their favourite anything tend to be of the listmaking/collecting ilk. It's a whole mindset.

kostika says:

i hate to kill your theory, but i'm a list maker.

OJ says:

Damn it!

Are you a mnemonic list-maker (Must do ironing, buy birthday present etc.) or a Top 10 Greatest Sci Fi Films ever type of list-maker. I meant the latter.

kostika says:

little of both. mostly the first though. it's a memory device for me. no point in a list that serves no purpose.

16th Aug 2006, 15:28

OJ says:

I think my theory holds then :-)

I make To Do lists too, and in fact one is staring at me right about now...

16th Aug 2006, 15:29

kostika says:

I don't jsut make To Do lists. I make lists of things jsut to remember them. Especially instructions. ANything I have to remember.
