Random person: What are you reading?
Me: (Insert YA or middle grade title here)
Person: Oh. I've never heard of that one.
Me: It's from the YA section. I read mostly YA.
Person: Is it good?
This is sometimes followed by a conversation about why I read YA. My hopes of becoming a published author and to write YA or middle grade novels.
Here is what happens since I have a Kindle.
Random Person: Is that a Kindle?
Person: Do you like it?
Me: Yes I love it.
Person: How does it work?
Then I show them all the awesome things the Kindle does.
Most people don't ask what book I'm reading anymore. They just see the device. For some reason showing off my Kindle is much more fun than telling people about my reading habits.
