I can’t wait to get a copy of…

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: If you could have dinner with one author alive or dead who would it be?

I know this is a play on the party game type question about any famous person but I still think it is a little bit of fun. I had to think about this one for a while and I am sure if you asked me again tomorrow I would have a different answer. Today, though, I would pick Julius Caesar. I will pause for any laughs about the fact he is a historical person. He is, of course, but he is also a writer and I have read the Gallic Wars several times. I think it would be very interesting to sit with him and see how his mind worked. He was such a genius in so many ways and yet he missed some very large red flags at the end didn’t he? I would say lets have that meal in modern times, I don’t think I want to try Dormouse.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Are you able to read when your in pain or do you find it hard to focus?

I suffer from Fibro and end up with high pain levels from it and some other things if I am not careful (like sensitive teeth thanks genetics) so I have a lot of time to think about this one. For me it depends on how bad the pain is. If if I am on the upper end of my pain register I want to read and distract myself from the pain but it is just not happening. It tends to be a curl up and just stare blankly at things type of situation. If things are only moderate I can usually focus on reading for a little bit. How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you follow book release dates and eagerly await a new arrival? Or do you just kind of check things out in a more casual manner?

I used to watch release dates for all my favorite authors and even just some of my favorite genres like a hawk. I would nearly be drooling while I waited for ALL the wonderful stories to come out. These days I have less time then I would like to reading and other things so I am more casual about it. There are a small few that I still watch like a hawk (come on Jim Butcher I’m talking to you) but beyond that I just kind of go with the flow. Chances are I will see a favorite author or genre release not to long after it’s been released.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite spot to read during the summer?

Well all have our favorite spots to read. I don’t know about anyone else but my favorite spots tend to change around the season and weather. I adore reading outside but summer in Tucson is very bad for that most days. My favorite reading spot in the summer tends to be on a couch with a fan looking out a large window. How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite Mark Twain novel?.

I know this is an oddly specific question but I have been thinking of re-reading the Mark Twain collections so it is on my mind. Not only that but he is a distant relation on my Dad’s side. Neat right? It is hard to pick a favorite for me, but if I had to it would be either Huckleberry Finn or A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s court. I love all of his works really, they have always drawn me in. It’s sad to me though that some of the same society lessons we need to learn from Huck Finn are just as relevant today, we really should have come further.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Which would you rather live without? Books or chocolate.

For me this is the impossible choice! I just I love my chocolate but I love my books. I love to eat my chocolate while reading my books. LOL how about you?

In other news for musing Monday I started a re-read of the Saxon Series by Bernard Cornwell. I always liked the series but now I admit I am enjoying the actual face of Uhtred better then the one I conjured in my head for this one, lol. Alfred still annoys me though, probably always will.

Destiny is all…..

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Have you ever read a book where you needed more answers to the story? Where maybe the ending was just way to open ended and you wanted to yell a the author about it? What book was it?

Since I have been revisiting some series books lately I started thinking about some books that aren’t series stories. Have you ever come across one or two that really were not the ending you wanted? Or maybe it was a series and the ending of the series was just not something you felt brought proper closure? I have actually read several stories that I just sighed and felt like it wasn’t really fully finished. One of those for me was the Twilight Series, I really didn’t like how that series was ended. Yes, I read them all and yes I am a fan even though I can admit they aren’t the best written books ever which is probably why the end makes me miffy. Along with the battle that never happened they ended just felt rushed to me. But that is of course just me.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: None

I am sorry the post is late this week and I shall not have a question of the week but it will be back next week. This weekend was my annual comic con and it was a busy time. The con itself didn’t go at all as planned but more on that later this week on Sunday Salon. It is also memorial day and for me it is somewhat solemn being raised in a Marine family. Thank you to all of those who have served and today especially those who gave everything.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite place to read in?

I was recently reflecting on how I used to read all over the place and now I tend to pick certain spots. I like to read out in my little “Oasis” area a lot or else in my room. I still bring a book or kindle with me for waits and such but I find it harder to read in public these days. It isn’t because I think I will be judged or anything I just seem to get distracted more these days. Maybe it is because I have become to wary, hard to say. How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: How do you review your books? Do you review them right away as soon as you finish reading them? Or do you let them wait a bit and do you ever fall behind?

Another busy week and I feel like I am so behind on posting reviews gah! So this week the muse is inspired by just that. I used to be very good about posting every single review almost as soon as I finished it. Now however I end up letting myself think about the book a little and then I end up getting behind. Lots of fun…lol
