Here is the scenario: I was sitting at my son’s karate class when another mom two seats away takes out a book and starts reading it. My heart began to pound and I thought to myself “My public spying book! My public spying book! Woo hoo!”
But I couldn’t see the cover no matter how hard I looked. She was holding it at an odd angle and then holding her bookmark over the front of the book. I kept looking over to try and see it but could NOT get a good look. Then I felt that she noticed me trying to look at her book. I didn’t want to seem like a weirdo so I tried to be more sneaky about it. Still no luck.
I was starting to stress (what a dork I am!) and began contemplating whether I should just ask her what the book was. Then the challenge gods smiled on me and she suddenly shifted her position and I caught a glance at the book — Marley & Me by John Grogan. I’ve never read this book and I heard it was good. Have you read it? Is it as good as everyone says?
So I was wondering if anyone else found their Public Spying book yet? Did you have any trouble seeing the cover? Was it stressful? It was kind of a thrill for me … but then I am kind of easy to thrill. But the amount of stress I experienced while trying to sneak a glance at the book convinced me I would not be a good spy!
