Reading political books in public

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I'm going away soon and will be going on a lot of trains. My friend gave me a box full of books for me to read and I noticed there were a few political books: 

 

Margaret Thatcher’s memoirs - The Path to Power and The Downing Street Years.

Karl Marx - Wage-Labour and Capital & Value, Price and Profit and Capital:

 

 

 

Now those books on the political spectrum are complete opposites. However, if I were to read Thatcher’s memoirs, would people assume I am a Conservative/Tory? Similarly, if I were to read Marx’s books, would people assume I am a Marxist/communist?

 

For what it’s worth, I am not really political. But, I am interested in reading different types of books, including politics ones. 

 

Thank you.

I would think that if people are making negative assumptions about a stranger based on the books they are reading, then the problem lies with them, not with your choice of reading material.
