Hi kathleen, 

The text says -

J'adorais parler de livres avec ... I used to love to talk about  books with 

This is speaking of books in general.

if you wanted to say -

I used to love speaking of the books I was reading at the moment with ...

then, you would use :

'des = de +les '

J'adorais parler des livres que j'étais en train de lire avec ...

Hope this helps!
