Musing Mondays (July 22)



Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…


• Describe one of your reading habits.

• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Lately I haven’t been reading as much as I usually do.  I don’t know whether it’s the fact that I am constantly feeling exhausted, with far too many ideas going through my mind; or that I am constantly turning towards my laptop now, rather than books.  Whatever it is, I want to get back into reading every day.


I used to read every morning as I drank my mug of coffee – I want to start doing this again as it always left me feeling peaceful and relaxed and ready to start the day.  I used to read every evening in bed as well, but now I am shattered by the time I get ready for bed.  Reading is, and always will be, an important part of my life and who I am.  So I am going to do my best to start picking up a book at least once every day and get back into the habit of it.

  1. I know someone online who once mentioned that she spends half an hour before bed reading every night, that she’s done so since she was young enough that it was her father doing the reading. She had a baby earlier this year, so I suspect that might have changed now. I try to read a little (or more) each day but I don’t have a set routine like that.

    • I try and read during the day as well, but I find that if I have a routine like reading before bed, it stops becoming something I have to think about and becomes something that I automatically do. I particularly like reading before bed as it means I am not looking at a screen as that can interfere with sleep.
