Musing Mondays – books on holiday

musing mondaysMusing 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!

This year, (at time of drafting this post) I’ve read 19 books. Of which 7 have been on holiday in a different country (or on some form of transport related to going on or coming back from that holiday). All 7 of those books I’ve really enjoyed, I’ve finished them (unlike a non-trivial number of DNFs at home), and it has taken me weeks/months to get around to reviewing them (nothing special there then).

What does this tell me? That I don’t prioritise reading when I’m in my normal life? (see previous thoughts on that topic) That I save my best reads for the beach?

  1. I am less than 100 pages to then end of a 500 page ebook called “No Dark Valley” by Jamie Langston Turner. I like Christian genre books, but this one is waaaaay too long. It might have even been better as two, although I haven’t quite figured out exacrly how it might be divided.

    I think its a bit on the “Prodigal Son” type story…getting as far away from God as possible, but the upbringing you have shaming you so much that you “should” all over yourself. I do like the hymn connections with eachchapter
