Musing Mondays (Sept.19)

September 19, 2011

This week’s musing asks…

How often do you read a book, just because you’re in the mood to read it? (not because you’re obligated to for a book club, or a challenge, or for review)

As I’ve stated, over the last couple of days, I don’t often –any more– read books “just for the heck of it”. I read for review, or a challenge, or for book club. I might throw in a random library choice here and there, but for the most part, my reading is obligatory.

But, as I also stated over the last couple of days, that is going to change, right shortly. I’m taking a break from “obligatory” reading, and I’m going to read “just for fun” for a while. And, I’m actually really excited about it! ;)

Now, when the books on my shelves call me to (finally) come read them, I can think, “Soon! I promise!” — and actually mean it! LOL

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

  10. We should all read for pleasure! Here’s my post: Adventures in Borkdom


  11. This is a great question I’ve been struggling with lately. Here’s our response;


  12. Every week I choose books I’d like to read for pleasure. I have a couple I do for Bible studies but other than that, I choose them because I’m in the mood to read them. Only rarely will I do a book club book. I find reading much more enjoyable this way.
