There are reading lists, reading challenges, word count challenges, NaNoWriMo, blogging challenges and whatnots afloat on the web these days. While I enjoy reading and keeping myself up to date with some bloggers’ progress when they participate, I don’t participate myself. A couple of years ago when my life was crazy, I decided to participate in the April A to Z Challenge, simple because. And while, looking back, my posts from A to Z on each of the letters of the alphabet were hasty and rudimentary, it was still nice to have favourite fictional characters rounded up. Last year, of course, I wrote about Scotland.
Anyway, I did it the first time and enjoyed it, I do not think I could take on too many challenges ever. I never seem to have the time. And also, one of the reasons is to keep my other blog alive, I have a soft corner for it. This is what I’m doing for the third instalment of this writing spree starting tomorrow. Do you ‘do’ a lot of challenges?
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!
