This week, BTT asks: "Have you ever read a random book left in a waiting room or on a park bench, etc., and did you like it?"
And my answer is -- I don't think so. If I have, I don't remember it, so I guess the book must not have made much of an impression.
Actually, if I found a book in a waiting room or on a park bench or in any public place, unless it was clearly marked as a giveaway (with a Book Crossing label or something like that), I'd most likely just leave it where I found it, assuming the owner might come looking for it.
I agree with you. I can't remember ever finding a book just laying around anywhere.ReplyDelete
I don't think I've ever read a book I found in a public place either.ReplyDelete
Those are my thoughts, too, Joy...mine is slightly different, but in a sense, the book was "found."ReplyDelete

I agree also, I never found a book just lying around.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of this book crossing until today. I will have to check it out. Here's my BTT.ReplyDelete

It's never happened to me either and I would make the same assumption.ReplyDelete
Hi: Yes, I'd have a hard time taking a book from clearly "public-private" places (like a waiting room) - a train station might be different, I often leave a newspaper or magazine or book behind in a hotel or airport in the hope that someone else will pick it up. Here's my story:ReplyDelete

I'd feel the same way. I would never pick it up and figure the owner would be back for it.ReplyDelete
