Well I tried

I was sitting in the caf with coworker (not the former virgin coworker, but the other one, the one I went to Thanksgiving with) when WC came in. By himself. And he sat at a table 2 tables over (his usual table). SO mustering up every ounce of courage I have in my notso little body, I say "Hey if you're by yourself, you're welcome to join us if you'd like." But no, he'd rather sit and read his book. So there you go. Now I'm not assuming total failure because he did come over and we talked about books for a moment. AND I had a book sitting on my tray actually. But y'all can get off my motherfuckingback about making some sort of move that indicates interest because I think I have indicated interest. (Michelle, does this violate the no asking him out rule?)

Not total failure at all. Total failure would be if you had been alone, he had been alone, he said he'd rather read and he had no book with him.

No, it does not violate any rules and was the perfect thing to do. His response indicates exactly what he meant it to indicate - he wanted to read his book.

I'm impressed.

And PM is right; most often reading a book is just reading a book.
