Being ‘social’ while buried in a book

DEAR MISS MANNERS: My 62-year-old sister has the habit of pulling a book from her purse in any social outing involving friends, relatives, etc., and reading. I consider her behavior the height of rudeness, ignoring everyone in her presence in favor of a book. And I’m a 66-year-old retired librarian! May I have your opinion on her conduct?
