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

  1. Gotta love free books! Here’s this weeks musing: https://daystarz.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/musing-mondays-6/

  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: http://lebookaffair.blogspot.com/.

    • 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).

  3. when I am not going to discuss the books I downloaded this week…but I will tell you what came in the mail, free of chrage, my favorite price!

  8. Almost all my downloads on my Nook are free! Gotta love free! My answer is at http://boyett-brinkley.blogspot.com

  9. I agree – there are a lot of great things about ebooks, but I will also always prefer paper :) Today I’m thinking about how we use different social media at my monday musing.

    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 http://icewarmth.com/musing-monday-61713/

  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.

  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.
