:::Reading Isn't My Backup Plan:::

Book open, head down does not mean 'Please come talk to me, I have nothing better to do than read this dumb book.' 

It means, 'I'm trying to read. I want to be engaged in this activity. This is what I want to be doing right now. Please stop talking to me. I'm already doing something.'

It's not that I'm anti-social, it's just that when I'm reading, I'm reading. Reading.

Reading.

Hee! I get it. I hate it when I'm reading on a plane and my neighbor wants to chat.

I read on my breaks sometimes, or when I'm covering the front desk. Those moments are more precious than gold. It's just funny to me that people will walk up and just start talking, and keep talking, and talking, and talking, and I'm sitting there in agony hearing the clock tick away my free reading time! I always want to ask them why they don't just stop by the library at any other point in the day when I'd welcome the distraction!
