Have you ever been reading in a public place, like while having lunch, and someone tries to start a conversation with you? I have. It's like they think you are so lonely that you've had to resort to a book to keep you company. And they've decided — in all kindness — to rescue you. Okay, so maybe I'm just trying to think the best of people. After all, they have no way of knowing you've been waiting all morning for your lunch hour so you can dive back into your novel and find out happens next. Your boss does expect you to work during the week and not call in sick so you can stay at home to read. And here's this stranger (or co-worker) interrupting your precious reading time.
What's a girl to do? Someone came up with a great idea ~ in the form of book covers, like the one above. Yeah, go read about it. Personally, my favorite is "Shhh. I'm in book mode."
