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 took a few weeks off from posting Musing Monday to make a choice on what I wanted to do with it. I have also been super busy, so it was a good time to let it breath as it were. For the moment I want to keep going with Musing Monday and I hope that everyone still enjoys it.

This week’s random question: If you could no longer read, what do you think you would do as a hobby instead?

Okay, I know the idea of not being able to read is a horrow show for most of us. I know it is for me, but perhaps that is suiting for the month of October, since it is my favorite time of the year. But in all honesty what do you think you would be spending your time doing instead? I have a lot of hobbys, several of which have been spun into buisness work and if I am honest I have struggled in the past few years to fnd more time to read. I am working on that though. So for me this question is fairly easy.

If all of a sudden I couldn’t read or all of the books suddenly vanished from the planet I know I would have severl things I could fall back on. Crochet would be my first choice more then likely. After that I would do some of my other favorites like beading, candle making and a lot of the tinkering stuff I do. Pen pal of course, because I could never live without my paper and my fountain pen ink and pens.

I could probaly make a never ending list of things I would do with more time. I will also of course say if books vanished I would make it my personal mission to write some books so that we could have books again. I love to write, truly and I have many book ideas that I have just not been able to sit down and work on, flesh out and write. It is on my goal and to do list to find the time. Most likely once my buisness is in a place where I feel like I can step back a little more. Being better about all of my blogging would be a good place to start, right? I am so behind on reviews I wanna swat myself for it, but people forgive me, right? *LOL*

So now that I have made a little bit of a novella here for you about what I would do without books, you may think I would be fine without them. I totally wouldn’t, I love my books and want them here. So what would you do?

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

This week’s random question: What helps you make the choice to read a certain book?

I think we all have habits and routines when it comes to picking what we will read next, so I am curious what yours might be. Do you go based on the author? Only a certain genre? Maybe the cover? It takes a series or an author I really, really like to have them go right on my must read list. There are a few that make it though, Lauren Willig is one of those lucky few. I will also admit that I like covers, I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes I just can’t help but be drawn in by one. I try not to dismiss a book because I don’t like a cover, but I can be a sucker for a good one for sure.

“My purpose, my whole life, had been to love him and be with him, to make him happy. I didn’t want to cause any unhappiness now—in that way, I decided it was probably better than he wasn’t here to see this, though I missed him so much at that moment the ache of it was as bad as the strange pains in my belly.” ― W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose

This week’s random question: Do you ever use reading to procrastinate?

I am totally guilty of this one, especially lately. When I know I have to do something I might not really want to do I find it easier to get lost in one of my books. I did a lot of it over the weekend, I really should have been working on my shop website and setting a better balanced schedule for my never ending to do list, lol. So rather than deal with it, I read. Could be worse, right? Thankfully, it wasn’t anything so important I made big problems for myself by allowing myself a happy procrastinate land.

I hope everyone is having a good week. I am all tucked back into being back in my Home state for a visit. It has been a bit up and down, but there is always a book to lift one’s spirits. I treated myself to a small bit of shopping at good ole Half Price books, seems I have rather missed particularular used book shop.

“Before, I was brazen, life was a new frontier waiting to be conquered. I had high hopes for this adventure called freedom. Almost the way you feel when you get your first apartment and you tell your parents “so long.” The high comes crashing down as soon as you realize there’s nobody around to scold or reward. With it comes the realization that the people you were so desperately trying to get away from are the ones who gave you definition and character, a daughter, a friend, a sister.”

“Clint. She felt it before she’d met him, years before. The feeling of being trapped in a hole. No growth, no enhancement. Being trapped in this one place and unable to move. It seemed like such a simple plan in the beginning. First high school, then college, then career, then husband and children.” ― Trisha R. Thomas, Nappily Ever After

Happy Labor Day. I hope everyone is having a fantastic day, sometimes Monday can be alright if it is a holiday right? LOL

I don’t have a random question this week for musing, but I do have a question. Do you still want to see Musing Monday going on? As I mentioned last week I feel as if I have perhaps not been doing as well as the OG handler of musing Monday, there just does not seem to be to much participation.
