Musing Mondays (Aug.18)

Leave a comment

I also visit reviews at Amazon. I joined goodreads & hub & have gained access to hundreds of interesting sounding books free for Kindle reader.

My TBR is extensive. I have several catetories. TBR, therapeutic weeping, I’ve also won seven books from the goodreads giveaway. I’ve received four of them & so far so good.

So other’s review & synopsis are the way I select a book. I usually give 100 page test but have been pleasant surprised by books that came through after I read a little morre.

I agree about not wasting time on books that aren’t really that great. Some of the YA books I’ve received SOUND good but upon reading them they’ve been disappointing with lots of typos & misuse of words.

That, however will not stop my reading. I’m like a baleen whale seeking krill by swimming with it’s mouth open then closing the baleen plates & squishing out all the water. The books that are keepers are discovered this way.

Thanks for your Musing Monday.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
