What are you reading?
A friend recently asked this question of the boys. They looked blankly for a few minutes. Since I , like the boys, always have several books going at once, I can identify with the blank look. Which book do you tell about? Does the listener want to hear about all the books in which you are dabbling? Are some too private to mention?
A reading question seems innocent enough. It can be a dilemma, though, to know exactly what and how much to share with the person posing the question.
So, what are we reading?
