I have to say I missed 5 out of the15,  but here's why:

1]Over the years, I've gotten most of my books either through book clubs, or through internet thrift book stores, so reading a chapter while in a brick and mortar book store is something I haven't done--yet!

2]If only the question had said "bus station" instead of "airport", I would have been able to include it in my tally.  I've been in lots of airports over the decades, but I only remember buying books before boarding buses! 

6] I didn't include this one since it's been quite awhile since I've had the time and opportunity to actually read that many hours during a week,

8] I follow a few authors on Amazon.com, but not on social media--I was kicked off facebook awhile back, due to my saying that I supported a certain treatment for the CV-9 virus of which they didn't approve, even though now it's come out that the treatment is safe and effective. 

15] I wish I did own a piece of clothing that proclaimed my love of reading!

All valid reasons!

Guess you're going to have to make a trip to the airport ... just to a book .. and a Tshirt while you're at it proclaiming your love of reading  :-)

If I had a better place to post my reviews, I'd leave facebook in a heartbeat.  But so many authors I visit are there ... there go I  :-)

That is horrible.  Never write in a book, unless it's a textbook.  I can't stand it.  Books are precious beings who live on in us forever.
