I live and go to school in New York City. I love to read books, especially psychology books, books about animals, historical novels, travel guides, Russian literature, and science fiction. I am trying to make friends with people who like to read. Every day, when I take the subway to college, I ask random people what book they are reading right now. I want to strike an intelligent conversation with them. They either can't or don't want to talk to me about books. They usually just say that they liked this book, or that it was good so far. Why can't people have a long conversation with me? Is this because they don't pay attention to what they are reading? Or they just don't want to talk to a stranger on the subway?Answer Question

If it makes you feel any better, I would probably get into a ridiculously long conversation about the books I'm reading!
