Moonlight Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Today I was at the local coffee shop

And there was an elderly man - he was at least 70 - sitting there alone, drinking his coffee, and he was reading

   

which is a YA vampire book (a pretty good, one, too, actually) and I felt such 

 

FONDNESS

 

for this man I'd never met, who was sufficiently secure that he would read a YA vampire book in public.

 

I swear, I wanted to hug him. But that would be weird.

 

So, I didn't.

 

But it made my day.

 

 

(Also: is it weird that as I saw & felt all of this, I also was thinking 

"I can't wait to share this with my booklikes friends, because they will totally GET it?")
