ReadaThing in Public, right now!

As we speak, someone from LibraryThing is reading. That may seem like an obvious statement, but I can prove it’s true: the August “Reading in Public” ReadaThing is happening, and as I post this, leennnadine and norabelle414 are out and about, reading in the name of all things public, literary and LibraryThing.

Earlier today, Squeex and her daughter had a sip’n'read at a coffee shop, pictured here. You can see more pictures of their reading/coloring adventure on her blog.

It’s not too late to participate! If you have an hour of free time, and like the heady idea of reading where people can see you, sign up! We’re reading for 24 hours, and the day’s only half over (or night, if you’re in a different time zone). If you want to read more about the project, check here.

    I love seeing people reading in public, it really cheers me up and I always try and have a little nosey at what they’re reading too! I read every day on my way to work; at the train station, on the train, when I get to work early, and on the way home too. More and more people seem to be reading now, and I see some really old books being read and the latest thrillers/bestsellers too.

    I think ReadaThing in Public is a great idea, although it is just for a day!
