Musing Monday, January 20, 2014

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!

I am getting ready to go on a one week trip and am trying to finish a book I got from the library.  That should not be a big thing but it did get me thinking.  The book, Fire with Fire by Charles E. Gannon, is one I have on my iPad but when I saw it in hard copy I checked it out.  I wonder how many of us do the same thing?  Buy an ebook but find a hard copy in the library, check it out and read that instead of the ebook.  I know this is not the first time I have done this.  Let me know if you do the same.


  1. I haven't done that, however, I downloaded " Agnes Grey" but found a website where you can listen to audio books, so I decided to listen to the book instead of reading it.

  2. If I read a book on my kindle that I really enjoy, I always buy a "real" copy. I just like to have physical copies of books that I like on my shelves.
    Have a safe trip!

  3. I tend to do the same thing. It's just better to read a "real" book :)

  4. I don't have an ereader yet, so that doesn't happen to me :)

  5. Although I do like to listen to E audio books, when it comes to reading, I'd much rather have a real book. There's something about holding a book in your hand and curling up in a comfy chair . . . I fear the younger generation will never develop this habit though. too many electronic temptations.

  6. Go ahead, continue with the hardback copy. i would agree that it's better.

  7. Sometimes I much prefer to read a real book. I always buy non-fiction books as hard copies as flicking backwards and forwards is much easier that way. I think some books lend themselves to the 'real' reading experience.
