When Should You Disturb A Book Lover? #TuesdayBookBlog #Bookworms #Booklovers ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿค

When is the right time to disturb a book lover?

Interrupting a reader at the wrong time can lead to:

  • An uncomfortable atmosphere.
  • A glare.
  • A snarl.
  • Muttering under the breath.
  • An angry outburst.
  • Bad thoughts about you forming inside the readerโ€™s head.
  • Danger.

Donโ€™t panic because I have some advice:

If you spot any of these warning signs then it is best to leave your reader alone:

  1. Your reader is engrossed in a book and is totally relaxed. Donโ€™t spoil a lovely reading moment by disturbing them.
  2. Your reader has just come in through the front door clutching their latest book purchase from the local book shop and has raced over to the armchair with a goofy happy smile on their face. Donโ€™t go near them.
  3. Your reader has raved about how wonderful their book is and how it has taken them to new heights of reading enjoyment. Stayโ€ฆ

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
