Musing Mondays (November 04)

My Musing:

I have followed this series since its inception as I used to follow his wife Nicole’s Blog (she does incredible work too). I think he does a fabulous job on every piece and I enjoy what seems to be a very original idea.

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!

  1. Sometimes I feel like the only one who reads anymore… and I don’t have time for that much, myself! Reading two books by writer friends right now… one is gawd-awful and the other one is pretty good. Would love to indulge some time in Stephen King’s “Doctor Sleep” but will wait for paperback… also want to read “Five Days At Memorial” about the events at a hospital during Hurricane Katrina – that’s on hold at the library, behind about 70 other people…!

    • Who cares if you’re the only one that reads!? You’re so much the better for it. If your friend has written an awful book, how do you tell them that? Do you give them a lot of feedback to work with?

      • In my critique group, we try to offer balanced feedback, though there are always some writers unwilling to listen to what you have to say. I know some writers have a policy of not ever reviewing books of people they know personally in public forums like Amazon and Goodreads – I think I will adopt that policy in this case!

      • Oh I know! It’s so hard to break someone’s heart, especially if they have worked hard at it. But if it was a very very good friend, I’d give them the brutal truth for their own good…
