Musing Mondays (June 17)

June 17, 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).
• 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:

Much as I will always, always prefer reading paper books, I am truly loving the Kindle app on my iPod! I’ve gotten a ton of FREE books, thanks to the deals Amazon shares for Kindle!

I belong to a great group of ladies on Facebook who keep notifying me every time there are free books. Love them to bits! :D

My recent downloads include:

• “The Small Business Lifecycle” by Charlie Gilkey
• “Pinterest for Business” by Mike Stewart & Casey Watkins {currently FREE!}
• “Turn Your Dreams & Wants Into Achievable SMART Goals!” by Anna Stevens
• “The Negotiator” by Dee Henderson (#1, O’Malley series)
• “On Becoming a Writer” by Denise J. Hughes
• “The Prolific Writer” by Ethan Miller
• “Sparkly Green Earrings” by Melanie Shankle
• “How to Organize Your Life at Home” by Higher Read publishing
• “Beyond Ordinary” by Justin & Trisha Davis

I’ve also purchased a couple of books for Kindle, too … it’s just too easy, considering I can read them immediately. ;)

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

  2. I must confess I’m still a paper addict. But I’m really curious about kindle – I would like to give it a try in the future (as soon as I can afford buying one).
    Here’s the link to my musing:

    • Amazon has a FREE Kindle app that you can download for your computer — that’s how I got it to begin with. You just have to be able to read on the computer screen (which I didn’t do much, as it gives me headaches).

    I adore reading on my Kindle. I love having so many books right at my fingertips. I love that if one book is boring me, I can just switch to another one with a few clicks. I also find I read faster on the Kindle – I might get through a book, even a long one, in a week vs. several weeks if it were a physical book.

    Here is my muse for this week

  12. I love my Kindle. It keeps people from knowing what I’m reading and is really good for on the go reading moments. I don’t have to fumble around with a paper book. I think my ebook to paper book reading is about 50/50 now.

    Here my musing –

  13. I love free books… on the Kindle, the Nook, whatever. :-) I’m not picky. If you haven’t already, check out Book Bub. It’s a daily e-mail with free and reduced priced books for whichever reader you may have.
