Is it normal to take my book with me grocery shopping? ???Is it normal to take my book with me grocery shopping??? ??? Amber #questionnaire
I don’t know about normal but how would you do your groceries?
I take books everywhere. Even concerts.
Audiobooks are awesome for grocery shopping ?
I do. Sometimes the check out lines are long and slow.
Oh yea. Esp at Wal-Mart
Yes! My Kindle goes everywhere I go just in case I have some down time. It’s the only way I get my reading done. 😀
Uhm, yes! ?
Uhm, yes! ?
My deli counter has long waits
You should have one with you wherever you go… and a backup book. So, two books wherever you go or a reader.
Yes. It’s normal. I do it too. I also take them to funerals and weddings. ?
Bookworm problem 101: yeah its normal. *crying* very normal ok?
of course! You never know when you’ll need it!
Oh yes you do 😀 When it’s really busy and you’re waiting in line. I use the smartphone app 😀
Only for the true bibliomaniac ?
I carry my paperwhite in my purse when I leave the house.
I do too
Of course! Sometimes I take a break in the deli section, just so I can read my book.
No – either do your shopping or stay home and read!
@Lori because you can get distracted and not pay any attention to what is going on around you.
Why do you need to pay attention to what’s going on around you?
When would you read?
read while waiting in line for the cashier 😉
Very normal. I keep one in my purse and will read if the line is long
No it’s not normal because I don’t do it! Lol just kidding
How is that weird
I love listening to an audiobook
Yes, yes it is.
Not just shopping…wherever you go
Eh. Who cares? I bring books most places. I always have back up reading in my car just in case. ?
There and everywhere!
I gave up the attempt to be normal years ago. It’s glorious! I take my book everywhere. Parents at my son’s baseball games look at me like I’m crazy because I always read between innings (they look at me weird as they play on their phone).
I noticed that as well ..like it’s totally ok and normal to forget the world around you and play with your phone 24/7 but reading a book is “weird”
Of course! What ELSE are you going to read in the checkout lane?
Yes you may stop for coffee before you shop. I do.
My mom had to physically prevent me from bringing books to Mass… I’m an adult now and I still try to have purses large enough to hide paperback books…. Otherwise, thank goodness for the Kindle app on my phone.
yes it is !!
No but it should be!
I put on my headphones and listen to my audiobooks! It’s awesome!
I did it!!
Take your book wherever you go. You’ll find a few minutes to read.
I listen to whatever book I am reading while shopping. If I had my way every book I have would have an Audio version.
i wish whisper sync was included in audible 🙁 would love the ability but refuse to pay for 2 versions
especially if it is a book i will only read once
Whispersync is in Audible. I get discounts all the time that way. I will pay 1.99 for a book in Audible that if I just bought it in audible would be like 20 dollars.
If you have KU some books you can get the audio and written for free. I found Suzanne Wright that way. She has a great series you can read and listen for free on KU.
I do the same.
No, but good idea if you can concentrate on 2 things at one time.
I do audio books so I listen constantly, shopping, cooking, cleaning, driving, running, etc.
I work for an audio book company so I get all my books free on the staff account ?
@Kaleisha is it bad that I kinda hate you right now…lol
Not at all. I love my job. I would be jealous too lol
This my office we have a mini put course, a game room, a zen garden, and a full sized kitchen.
I get full benefits unlimited vacation days on salary and I got to take 12 months on mat-leave
@Kaleisha where did you say you work?
We’re Audible’s biggest competition but we’re independently owned instead of them who are run by the super corporation that is Amazon.
@Kaleisha sounds l ill e an awesome place to work.
I ill e = like.
You never know what could happen.
I don’t leave home without my Nook or Kindle, even if I’m just going to the store.
Completely normal! I do the same thing. 🙂
People don’t leave home without their phone. Drivers text and cause accidents and people text rather than speak face to face. Our constant companion cannot ja anyone and does not take away from spending time with others.
you should be a proud mamma
I’ve taken mine to dinner. Lol
Everywhere…just don’t read in line at checkout…lol…I know you want to! 🙂
I carry my iPad everywhere, but I don’t read while I’m shopping, unless it’s a grocery list.
That’s when I use an audiobook.
Is it normal to take it with? Sure. A lot of people keep books in their purses, cars, backpacks…Read it while trying to grocery shop? No. But, listening to an audio book on my phone while trying to make my way through the throngs helps keep me sane while I do mine!
If you got the time while shopping that’s normal… At least for bookworms…
Nope…..I take books with me everywhere I go….
Absolutely! I’d rather read my book in line than the trashy magazines.
I run into things while shopping cuz reading. Don’t know if it’s normal…
I read on my phone whenever i have a few minutes free. Gotta love that Kindle app!
I use my phone all the time for both Kindle and Audible.
I think so..what if you are in a long line? Are you supossed to stand there and do nothing..when you can be reading?
I brought a book to a wedding. Actually a Stephen King book so hopefully I didn’t jinx them.
I hope so I don’t leave home without my kindle!
Why not – just in case there is a situation when you whip it out and read for a few moments and forget about the world around you 🙂
i take headphones so i can listen to my audiobooks
How do you read & grocery shop??? Just curious.
@Christina I get you now.
Not really but who cares
I was going to do that yesterday but I’d just trip over or walk into everything ?
The nice thing about ebooks in a large format phone is nobody knows that you are a complete addict.
I’ve taken mine a lot of places but never to the grocery store! Lol
Oh yes, I take one almost everywhere. Though not the grocery store anymore. Too many tots to talk to. And I usually just want to be done and go home.
I do that as well?
Yes quite normal.
