Booked by 3: June

I had an idea for this month's Booked by 3 questions, but I've been busy catching up from vacation and haven't gotten around to posting it, so I'm going to go with Naridu's suggestions:

1. Do you read while on public transport or when on long journeys by train/tram/bus etc? And if so what is your preferred reading material for these trips?

2. You see someone reading a book on the tram/train/bus and are impressed/want to get to know that person, what is the book? Name three possibilities. Bonus: Have you ever gotten a book to read because you've seen someone else reading it on public transportation?

3. If you were wanting to catch someone's eye, what book would you be reading? Name three possibilities.

Thanks, Naridu. These are great. I added a bonus question to #2, because I was curious about it.

And if anyone else has questions to suggest, leave them in the comments. Thanks.

And if you play this month, leave the answers in the comments or leave a link to your blog post where you answer. :)


  1. Hi Shelly, Nice to have you back. I picked up the questions just now and will have the answers in my journal tomorrow (Tuesday). Great questions as always. Have a lovely week ahead. :)

  2. Thanks, Toni. It's good to be back. Well, not really. I LIKE vacations. :)

  3. hehe, glad you liked them. I had a head start on this one so answers are up on my page :)

  4. I found you through the Daily Meme site, and decided to started playing. This is fun. XD
    Left you a link to my journal...which isn't a blogger.
    Well, I do have a blogger, but I don't use it. >.<

  5. Hi, Ritta,
    I wanted to leave you a comment, but you don't allow them from anyone not your friend, so I'll post it here, in case you check.

    Ah, you're on LJ. :) Glad you found Shelly's Book Shelf and thanks for playing. The books you mentioned are all good ones.

    And yes, I have an LJ, too, which I do use, but I mostly use Blogger.

  6. Hey, what great questions! So, I'm a bit late...can I play anyway? :) I've answered on my page.

  7. It's never too late, Heaz. Your answers were great. Thanks for playing.
