if you saw…

…someone on the bus reading a book you really loved, would you say hello?

Or am I just weird that way?

Saw someone reading Suzanne Collin’s Mocking Jay, while I was (re)reading the 5th book in her Gregor the Overlander Series.  I said hello and told said person that she would be in town on the 1st.  We smiled and then went back to our respective books.  It always gives me the warm and fuzzies when I connect with a fellow book worm.

  1. I would love for someone to come say hi and tell me they enjoy the same book!! I don’t know if I would have the guts to talk to someone if I saw them reading a book I love… some people just don’t like to be bugged, even if they have good taste in books! I’m even afraid of saying salam to Muslims I see when I’m out and about. I would think any Muslim would love to be told salam but at the same time I’m afraid they won’t take it well…

    • Hey, if they don’t return your salaams, then the sin is on them, and uber rewards are on you :) You may be surprised! One thing I love about my city is that we have 50 billion hijabis, and 9 times out of 10, we’ll all smile at each other and exchange salaams.

      I don’t think any (sane) muslim would take salaams unwell.
