Going to visit hubby’s family , Is it rude to take my book?Going to visit hubby’s family , Is it rude to take my book? Loretta #questionnaire
Nope! Just don’t pull it out during spending time together! Save it for your evenings when you’re laying in bed and the trip there and back.
After our fourth family vacation, my exMIL declared I was only allowed to bring one book. I bought a Kindle before we left….
Im usually not in their conversations Im sitting there like a log
I love my in-laws but I always take a book. I don’t always read it, but I do have it with me. My mother in law now asks to see what I brought and it has started a few good conversations. Just have it with you in a bag and use your best judgement as to whether it’s appropriate to take it out or not.
Get a small Bluetooth earbud for one ear and cover it with your hair, and listen to an audio book. You can tell if they actually say something to you with the other ear and respond appropriately ? None will be the wiser.
Nope. I bring several. Once my hubby gets around his mom, I become Casper the quiet ghost. Lol
I take a book to my in-laws….we dont like each other though…I hide in the corner and read they ignore me and we are all happier. (My in-laws went acknowledge that my wife and I are married so boo to them)
I’m sorry you have to go through that ?
Thanks:) we’ve worked out a system so everyone is happy. Books beat people most of the time….
Totally agree. I hope one day you and your wife won’t have to go through that with anyone anymore.
Good, I’m glad. And thank you! You do as well! You have a lovely smile
The big smiley one is my wife but she’s lovely:)
Oh I’m sorry! Your eyes are beautiful then! They look almost silver♡
Y’all are adorable! Your wife’s smile is like a ray of sunshine! Love to see so much love!
Awe thank you:)
Sounds like you know already. Lol js
I always take a book. My inlaws aren’t super conversational so it passes the time effectively.. 🙂
I bring a book sometimes. Usually I don’t read because we’re all socializing, but of there’s down time I’ll read
You better take your book ?
You can. Be yourselfm
A million times no
I do that all the time. Oopsie
I’d do the same if I was visiting hubby’s family ?
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” ― Lemony Snicket.
Based on my own experience it’s a must.
No whenever I go see my husband family his mom love that I always have a book with me
My partner always calls me Hermione because everywhere we go I pack my current read in my handbag. I say to him “you call me like it’s a bad thing, you’re a muggle, you don’t understand”
Yes, but I’d do it anyway.
You take it just in case! Nobody needs to know. Whenever I have to deal with family reunions, I resist for an hour or two, then take a break, find a quiet spot and read. My family usually know where I went and just let me be.
It is. But what’s the life without being rude? 😉
Take a few
Not at all!!! If you need or want a little alone time go find a comfy spot! I love finding reading nooks in other peoples houses!
Rule #1 of the bookworm…. Have a book on you at all times ?
Only if you crack it open when you should be visiting! Save for down times.
I do it all the time. They hate me so whats the point in making nice. Besides, it shows them i dont care. Hahaha. But its totally okay to have a back up
I always have a book and some knitting in my bag … 😉
No. I never go anywhere without a book or Kindle.
Nope I take mine every where
take two, just im case
of course not !
No, it’s your saving grace….
Nope, a book is easier on the nerves
I have a friend whose husband’s family reunion is full of contention. She always takes a book and finds a quiet spot!
Heck no. If they are like mine they will keep their noses and eyes locked on their phones. They would hardly notice you reading. ?
Bring the book. You will need it.
Take a couple ??♂️ honestly I would do the same ?
No. Books are simply love
No. As long as you bring it out during bedtime only or at dawn until they wake up.
No, it’s necessary for your sanity. See Sherrie’s comment
Take it, you will need it
No. Take a book with you.

No. I take my book everywhere I go ?
