Book Blogger Hop January 24th - January 30th: Ex Parte Virginia, 100 U.S. 339 (1879) Held That State Judges Could Not Exclude Black Citizens from Serving On Grand Juries or Petit Juries

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Do you talk to strangers about books, especially when you see someone reading a book?

First, I would never talk to a stranger who was reading a book. They are reading a book. Unless they stop reading and want someone to talk to them, people who are reading books should be left alone with their book.

Second, I have frequently talked to strangers about books, which is probably an inevitable consequence of attending science fiction conventions, especially reading-oriented science fiction conventions. Since pretty much everyone is there to talk about books, you end up having a lot of conversations about books, and a fair number oft hose are with people you have never met before.
