Musing Mondays (April 13th)

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme, hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm, that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Who, in your life, are you best able to share your love of reading with?


Answer: I used to share my love of reading with my mother, but she passed away last year. We shared a deep loving of reading and would read the same books at times (not always!) and discuss them thoroughly.

I also used to talk about books with my mother-in-law, but she really can’t read books anymore. My husband doesn’t read the same books I do, nor is he as obsessed with reading.

That is one of the reasons I started a book blog: to share my love of books. However, I really want to be able to discuss books face-to-face, too! I now intend to join at least one book club in my area. I can’t wait!

  1. Sorry to hear about the loss of your mother… I share my love of books with my daughter and a close friend but most of my book-talk is done through the world of book-bloggers (and what a fantastic lot they are) I'm a bit wary of book-clubs in case I really don't like the book choice, I don't know that I'd be disciplined enough to read it.

  2. I hope to go to my first book club this week. I liked the book we are reading for the club, even though it is sad.

    I'm sorry about the loss, but through the memories and in books as well, she will continue to live on. I think that's what is so great about that – they never will truly go away because they remain in the moments we keep.
    That is also the reason why I started a book blog, because I didn't have anyone to talk to about books!

  4. The memories are what keep me going. I miss her so much, but I have some great memories.
