Musing Mondays: Stuff To Read

April 7th, 2014 (11:31 pm)

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week

• Describe one of your reading habits.

• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Musing Mondays is a meme from shouldbereading.wordpress.com

I know it has become a cliche: So many books, so little time. But it really is true. I have stacks of books around the house that I'm dying to read, and an enormously long list in my Amazon shopping cart of books I want to get hold of. So anything I write here will be woefully incomplete. But here are some of the ones I'm hoping to read soon. I've placed some of them on my book club's list of upcoming selections. Others I'm just hoping to fit in anywhere I can.

It sounds like we have the same problem with all the books we want to read ;-)
