Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

Random Question: If you couldn’t read anymore what would you do?

I know that there are other-ways to read other then traditionally just reading the words, but I think most of us in the book blog world read rather traditionally. What do you think you would do if all of a sudden you couldn’t do that anymore? I know I would have a nice big meltdown to start. Then once I was done with that I would probably start working on trying to find more narrators and readers that I like for audio books. I would have to learn to be less fussy about that.

Random Question: Series or stand alone which do you prefer?

This was a random question a friend asked me the other day when he noticed I have been reading more series books lately. When I have time to read that is, I am still so bad right now about finding the balance in my schedule. Anyways, I don’t pick series books over others on purpose or what seems to be on purpose for me but I do seem to be reading more. I enjoy the feeling of spending time with old friends and stories. There is something uniquely special when you get to get to know characters over the course of a series, especially if it is a long series.

I just noticed the last Musing Monday question was very poorly phrased. I as on Nyquil when I did it, sorry about that everyone.

Random Question: How to you pick what to bring with you for reading on a Holiday/Vacaction?

Choosing something to take with me on a vacation used to be a horrible experience for me, lol. When I was a kid I can remember being in tears because I could only take one or two books with us to the lake. Sometimes my parents took pity on me and put some more of my choices in their luggage, lol. It was a hard thing too even as I was older, especially when I was packed out on horse back trips. Lots of reading could be done but can’t bog down your gear. I know a few times I chose to bring a second book instead of a hairbrush, lol. Thankfully NOW we have devices that are tiny and can happily supply our whole library with us. I usually end up bringing a packup paperback though in case my device runs out of battery and I can’t charge, lol. How about you?

Random Question: Do you ever get frustrate with how long a book is taking?

As readers I am sure we have all come across the instance of waiting for a favorite Author to put out a new book especially if it is part of a series. I mean we all know how long George RR Martin is taking but I am actually okay with that. It is Jim Butcher who is driving me up the wall. We have had the book title for like two years now. Its maddening to say the least. So how about you?

Random Question: Do you find you read less when the weather first warms up?

This one has been on my mind a lot as I watch all the snow storms hitting different areas. I know when it first became spring when I lived in Minnesota I just wanted to spend as much time as I could outside. Sometimes I would take a book with me but a lot of times it was really just nice to sit and enjoy nature after such a long winter so reading went down a little bit.

Now that I live in Tucson well my seasons have switched a bit. It starts to warm up really fast here so Spring is kind of the beginning of the end for how much I am outside. Obviously having lots of sun is not the worst thing in the world or anything but man oh man my little body does not like that constant beating heat. Sweat the second you step outside the door.

Of course these days my reading is being curtailed by my growing business but I still ponder the weather.

Random Question: What is the meaning of life?

I know the random question is really deep this week, lol but answer it if you like. It can be fun to ponder such a deep though once in a while. Real life has been slamming me pretty hard this month and so I am sorry if Musing Monday has felt a little bit..down. I just can’t keep up sometimes. I hope you will all forgive me for that, I wish I had more hours in the day or a Tardis. I will let you know if I find either one of those.

Random Question: Why did you become a reader?

I have always wondered what it is that makes some of us fall totally in love with reading and what makes some only read what they have to through school. So I thought it would be a good musing for the day. Do you know what it was that made you into a reader? For me it was being told as I grew up that we had a distantly related to Mark Twain. It felt like some family thing. From there I just really found I loved being lost in these worlds created on the page. I love meeting new characters and new stories. I just love all of it. There is something so truly enjoyable about being able to set your own problems and life aside for a little bit and enjoy another story in another time or land ect.

Random Question: None..call its a free space day?

Sorry this is so late and there is no question today. My internet has been a real pain in the rear end all day. I swear it has something against me most days. Back to normal next week.

Edited cause I made a boo boo on the date, lol sorry about that.

Random Question: Do you prefer true Biographies or fiction that tells the life of someone?

This question was inspired by a conversation about a movie, but it can be applied to books as well. I know I have read my fair share of historical fiction after all, but I also read biographies. This question came to mind during a conversation where someone was having a hissy fit about The Greatest Showman not being historically correct. That P.T Barnum wasn’t a super fantastic guy ect. Fair enough a little research shows that yes indeed he did some questionable things, like many people of the age. The movie does give a little look of that through the eyes of the critic and even P.T himself, saying he hoodwinked people,but yes, it is a very tamped down version because the movie isn’t meant to be a bio pic. I got some compliments from others in the conversation for explaining how I saw it. The greatest showman is P.T Barnum’s basic life story if P.T was telling it. No one is the villain of their own story and say what you will about some of what he did, he did create something that was special and was a place for the outcasts of the world to feel like they had some family.

I digress, I got to thinking about all the historical fiction I have read and how often there are plenty of facts but there is more that could be fact and might not be. Honestly, I think I prefer the fiction because life is tough enough sometimes. I like the escape. Now granted my curious brain will often dive into research on a new topic once I see it in the fiction, but it is often the fiction that get’s me curious in the first place. I like the combination of knowing the players involved along with the entertainment of the fiction. So which do you prefer?

Random Question: Have you ever stolen insults from books and used them in real life situations?

This seemed like a fun and different muse to try out this week. I get a lot of very amusing insults in the historical fictions I read and The Dresden files tend to have ones that make me laugh out loud. The other day I found myself actually using one from the Dresden files so I had to ask if anyone else ever used a book insult. I don’t insult people often, really it isn’t polite but sometimes when you are joking around or maybe working out at a Renaissance fair….can always use a good insult to banter with there! I hope I am not he only one who has done this lol, but I accept that I am a bit weird haha.
