Book Blogger Hop: June 23rd-29th


 If you are at a really good point in a book and the phone rings or the door bell rings, do you stop reading or let the phone or door bell go unanswered? Elizabeth @Silver's Reviews
I really wish I could say that I would leave it unanswered, but that is decidedly not true.

For the phone, I look at the caller ID and if I don't know who it is (or if I know the person isn't calling for anything urgent), I'll just leave it. However, the fact that I looked at the phone counts as having stopped reading. It's not really customary for people to call just for the sake of chatting anymore, so if I get a phone  call... it's likely something of some kind of importance.

For the door, almost no one knocks on our door unless we know they are on their way.

I have two kids, so I've gotten used to be interrupted somewhat frequently. I anxiously await that bittersweet time when they don't pester me for every little thing.

  1. If it's my landline, I always ignore it. If it's my cell phone, I will check to Caller ID. Especially if my husband or daughter are not home. I don't get a lot of calls really. The only ones who ever call the landline are telemarketers. Even though I'm signed up with the Do Not Call Registry, I still get calls . . . Several every day.

    I know what you mean about kid interruptions. I only have the one and reading around her can be quite challenging. Haha

    Have a great weekend!

    1. My daughter is almost 11, so she's a bit more considerate, though she has her moments. My son, age 4, has absolutely no boundaries. He'll even seek me out if my husband is home. D:

      I don't have a landline, so I don't have to worry about that. I do get quite a few random calls, but I just don't answer them. Usually if it's a number that needs to get a hold of me - they will leave a message anyway. THEN I can add them into my contacts.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Wonderful answer...landlines are usually solicitors.

    It will be bittersweet when the kids are on their own.

    I do check the caller ID. :) So you are correct that your reading is interrupted. :)

    Have a good weekend, and Happy Hopping!!

  3. Yes, most calls I get are trying to sell me something, or scam me.

  5. That's completely true. People are so used to texting that if you get a call, you know that it's probably important! Unless it's someone trying to sell you something, but I really don't get too many of those.
