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…

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: 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: 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: 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

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you like to read when you are feeling under the weather?

When it rains, it seems to pour does it not? I won’t lament too much here and bore you, but I was under the weather this last week. Not a great way to spend ones birthday. However, it did get me thinking of this week’s muse. I know when I am sick as much as I would like to read, it seems to be a little bit too much work. My brain would prefer to veg out and binge watch something. I know others like to curl up in bed with their favorite book. So what do you prefer to do when you are feeling sick?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Happy Beltane/May Day to all! I am running a little bit late today sorry about that. I won’t bore you with the details but I will just say I have been busy launching my new eCommerce site and the help I was supposed to get didn’t materialize. I digress, into the question of the week we go.

I am a person who likes both fiction and non-fiction. I enjoy the entertainment that comes from fiction but there is something just as enthralling about a historical non-fiction or a memoir. I suppose if I was forced to choose just one it would be Fiction. With fiction you do get the really good historical fictions which can be accurate within their framework. Which do you like best?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: When someone in your life passes do you pick up a book hey liked or one that reminds you of them to read?

With last week ending with the memory of Prince being gone for a year and this week starting with my Great Grandpa Mort passing away, I find myself pondering these topics lately. I am sorry if it seems melancholy to any readers, I suppose it can be. Honestly for me choosing to do some action like read a book that person enjoyed is a way to celebrate their lives. Now if I can just find the one that my Great Grandpa liked (I know it is here somewhere..in my spring cleaning mess lol) I can read it.

So what do you do?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you have a favorite time of day to read?

Taking a little bit of an easy way out this week, sorry about that I had to fill a large wholesale order for my shop and am a bit tired.

I tend to like to read in the evenings after everyone has settled down for the night. I am a night owl anyways and am often asleep during the day I admit, lol but I do like the peace of reading without a lot of interruptions. I will of course read at any time of day when I have the chance, but oh I don’t like interruptions. It never fails if I read before other people in the house go to bed or even the dogs and cats settle for a while, I am going to end up setting down my book at least 10 times in the space of a few hours. If I wait though I can generally have peace and not have to set down my book at all.

How about you?
