Musing Mondays (September 30)

Musing Mondays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

My Musing:

I am on too many social networks. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Goodreads, Instagram, Flickr… I do them all. I have this blog on WordPress and another one on Blogspot. So when I got another invite to another social network that is meant to be about books, what did I do? I signed up, of course! Have you heard of Riffle? It is like Pinterest, but it is about books and books alone.. so a cross between Pinterest and Goodreads. I have started ‘following’ some boards and the whole deal, but I don’t know where it’s all going to go. I’m happy with Pinterest and I’m happy with Goodreads, but do I want an amalgamation of the two? Do I?
Well I don’t know yet… when I do, I’ll let you know.
Are you on too many social networks?

  1. I’m only on Blogger, Facebook, and Goodreads. However, I feel I waste to much time on them. I haven’t even looked into the other ones you mentioned. I would rather have my nose in a book than reading and viewing all the other things you mentioned. Have a great reading week.

    • Yeah, I never mean to either. But one thing always seems to lead to another and then eventually get outta control. My reading time is mostly fixed though, I don’t let anything else eat into it. But you’re right, sometimes it’s all a waste…

  2. I’m also on many social sites before until most of them shut down. Right now, I’m in Tumblr (in which I’m ALWAYS active, if there’s no school work), Blogger, Goodreads, Facebook and Twitter (not really active in these two).

    Thanks for dropping by in my blog!

  3. Love the name of your blog! 🙂

    Yeah I feel overwhelmed sometimes from all the social media networks that I belong in. Feels like there’s never enough time to make sure they’re all updated. Or sometimes I just forget. Ooops! Feels like I’m constantly linking up about posts. But my goodness Riffle sounds great! I will have to check that out too. ^_^
