BA's Posting Challenge 14: Icebreaker

This week's topic: How do you get on to the topic of books when socialising, especially with new faces?

Socialising with new faces? I do not understand...

Seriously though, this is actually really easy right now thanks to the huge success of HBO's Game of Thrones. Most people have watched (or at least heard of) the show, and if they haven't it's generally easier to talk about TV than books. Once you get them started on the show, you just ask "Have you read the books the series is based on? The book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire and it's also really good!" And then, depending on their reaction, you can go from there. If they say "oh no, I don't read books", you can politely excuse yourself and move on to someone else at the party. Because who wants to socialise with someone who doesn't read books?
