Musing Mondays {November 5th}

Musing Mondays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week MizB asks a book related question and bloggers answer with their thoughts about the given topic.

This Week’s Muse Asks…

“…What is the most recent book you purchased, or brought home from the local library? What made you pick it? Have you started reading it, right away, or will you wait for a bit? …”

My most recent purchase was at my first book signing and it was a signed copy of Botanicaust by Tan Linsey. I have had Tam here for an interview and also Botanicaust was a Teaser Tuesdays book in September. I plan on posting a review later this month.

This week’s musing courtesy of 

Do you snack while you read?  If so, what is your favorite reading snack?

I am glad this came when it did because I am sitting here miserably sick, yes again. It seems when your body is forced to endure almost three weeks of prednisone  treatments your immune system SUFFERS.. gee really? Well I am currently suffering from a horrible infection and the antibiotics are not working so the doctor is waiting to see if we need Cipro again. OK JUST bury me because I am not going to make it to my 45th birthday anyway… but back to the question on snacking! (PSST do not forget Kingdom is FREE today through Wednesday 8-15 too!)

Musing Mondays {June 18}

This Week: To have or Have not...

Musing Mondays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week MizB asks a book related question and bloggers answer with their thoughts about the given topic.

This Week’s Musing..

MzB read an article, this past week, about book covers, and the difference between print & digital covers; about how the digital covers have almost disappeared entirely, while publishers decide to just skip right to the content. I to went and read this article and I suggest you get yourself over there and read the article too! Here is what this week’s muse presents for pondering, I hope you guys join in?

What do you think about this? Do you think the book cover is “dead”? Do you care whether the “covers” on digital books exist or not?
