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…

I hope no one is having issues with accessing the site please let me know if if you are so I can contact the host. I believe it’s just my computer acting up so this one is from the phone.

Random Question: do you ever feel obligated to read a book because you have read something else by the author ?

I’ll answer more in depth when I have my computer sorted out. I know sometimes I do feel like I should try other work by and Author. I felt that way over liking the Twilight series but I really disliked The Host.

Random Question: What do you think of required reading in school?

I recently watched a comment thread while browsing for slime shop work lol, where some kids were complaining about required reading. They said every book on the list was boring ect. I remember really enjoying required reading in school. Sure not every book was a hit but many of them really helped ignite my love of the written word. I just could not understand the huge dislike. Of course I am sure some of it stems from not wanting to be told what to read. I think required reading is important. You never know which kid may be sparked to not only be online but really love books by reading one of the classics. So what do you think?

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.
