Musing Mondays (Mar.11)

March 11, 2013

MusingMondays5Musing 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).
• 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:

My favorite places to read are either (1) lying on my bed, or (2) curled up in the corner of the couch. I usually am reclining while I read, and would love to get one of those “chaise lounges” (see below) some day. My friend has one that’s just as overstuffed as a regular armchair in her living room, and when I go to her house for book club, I race to get that spot, as it’s the best seat in the house! I love being able to stretch out!

This picture (below) is my idea of reading paradise. ;)

Unfortunately, it’s a picture I found on Pinterest — not my own personal space (yet).

    By the way that chair looks very comfy and honestly I would probably end up sleeping in there as well.

  2. your idea of a reading paradise is amazing ;) my imagination of such a place is the same ^^

  4. I have a similar couch and is just perfect for reading! Uhh,sometimes I get bored lying in bed so I just stay on the floor and read or in a hidden corner to don’t be disturbed. I just found your blog and I really like it! ^^ I also started Musing Mondays today! :)

  9. Perfect reading spot…but that white wouldn’t be conducive to kids, etc….lol

    Here’s MY MUSING MONDAYS POST

  10. We have a really comfy easy chair, but I don’t try to read in it because I know I will fall asleep!

  11. Hello, here’s mine!

    • LOL! I do the same thing. It shocked me that the book I am reading right now, “Dolores Claiborne” by Stephen King, doesn’t have chapters. It is just ONE 372 page long chapter. I am trying to make sure it doesn’t drive me crazy. PS – started last night and only 340 pages to go ;)

  12. It’s my habit to accumulate a small case for books for vacation/weekend getaway reading. My full answer is posted on my blog.

  13. I’m right there with you! I’d love a space like that to relax with a book!

    Here’s my musing! http://amongstories.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/mm-march-11th/

  14. My favorite part about Mondays…musing! Here is my contribution for the week: http://hilcheychandler.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/musing-mondays-march-11/

  15. Your idea of a reading paradise looks cozy and beautiful. My favorite reading place is in bed with lots of pillows. Here’s my current read: http://allisonsbookbag.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/musings-meme-current-reads-3/

  16. I was inspired to muse about my own favorite reading spots: http://tyrneathem.com/2013/03/monday-musings-places-to-read.html

  17. Oh that couch looks super comfy and a definite book spot! :)
