Reading at the Amusement Park?

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins finally came from the library! After reading a good review of this book from pretty much every blogger in my reader, I cannot wait to start.

The problem is that Boyfriend and I are going to Six Flags Great America today for his birthday, and I’m stuck driving.  I’m sure he won’t mind me reading while standing in the lines… right?

Where’s the oddest(or most inappropriate) place you’ve been caught reading?

    There are no odd or inappropriate places to read, in my opinion.

    The loo…? During a party 😉

    Don’t do it! You’re going to get sucked into the book and forget where you’re at. You’re not going to want to get on rides. Wait until you get home! =)

    I won’t say that I was caught, nor that it was particularly inappropriate, but we went to a very beachy wedding in the U.P. the day after Deathly Hallows came out, and (partially because my then-bf was very schmoozy with people I didn’t know) I kept sneaking back to the car once every hour or so.

    It was worth it, too 😉

    I read last week in gym class…while walking…while other people were playing other sports around me. Needless to say, I got hit by a basketball!

    I also read while walking up the street to pick my little sister up from the bus stop. Reading during trigonometry is also a must for me!

    I’m with Vasily–don’t do it! You will get sucked in!

    The last Harry Potter book came out when I was in Hawaii with my whole extended family. I let everyone else read it and enjoyed the beaches. Then I got it on the airplane home.

    I’ve started reading things while listening to an audiobook. Not a very good idea.

    Пора переименовать блог, присвоив название связанное с доменами 🙂 может хватит про них?

    I too read a book at Six Flags when I was 10 or 12 years old. I was a geek even then.

    My copy just came from the library, too! I hope you like it. And I hope I like it. 😀

    I read everywhere, but the most innappropriate time would be many years ago, with my boyfriend at the time. His parents were absolutely horrible to be with, so I pretended needing to go to the bathroom a few times during the supper. Of course, I just sat in there and read! It was way more fun! But not very friendly of me!

    I’m very curious about this book, too. I feel like it pops up everywhere I go! I’m on the waiting list for it at the library, too.

    You mean how I was just reading The Hunger Games on the trail to the top of North America’s tallest waterfall (that I wussed out on)? Yeah, you should have seen the weird looks I was getting from people. That, AND, about 3 other people stopped to take my picture reading next to the fall which I thought was hilarious!

    This weekend, I saw a woman at my salon completely engrossed in The Hunger Games. She came in, told the beautician what she wanted, and didn’t look up from her book until she was finished. It was great.

    I think the worst place I’ve been known to have my nose in the book is while I’m walking outside, sometimes crossing the street. I know, it’s totally dangerous! But I keep an eye out for what my fellow pedestrians are doing and I never do it for long. 😀
