Monday Memes


Before I share my Monday memes, I want to wish a special someone a very Happy Birthday!  She has been part of our family for quite a few years and both my husband and I consider her our daughter.  She has the biggest heart of anyone I know, is caring, funny, sweet and is the love of my oldest son’s, Paul, life.  My other daughter, Heather!!  Isn’t she beautiful?

Have a very Happy Birthday Honey!!  Hope your day is wonderful and that you and Paul have a fun day!!!

Today’s question:
What question(s) would you like to see asked in future Musing Mondays posts?

My answer:
My Monday routine has been altered today.  Usually I boot up my computer, grab my coffee, set up and open the windows of sites I will need, and head on over to Should Be Reading to get Monday’s Musing question to answer.  However, today we are asked to ask questions for future musings, which also means more coffee to get the brain cells to wake up and think lol.  Since I am behind in my “requested review TBR reading schedule”, I am going to ask for hints in this area.  So my questions are:

1.  Since we are all avid readers with an addiction to books, do you accept more books even though you know you are behind in your reading?  Does it then cause anxiety when you receive them knowing you can only read so many books?

2.  Do you have a system as to which books to read from your “requested review pile?  What is it?  What about when there are too many to read in a certain time frame?

3.  Something I would like to know since becoming part of this community, is how one manages between the necessities of daily RL, blogging and computer to-dos, and reading all the books in one’s TBR pile.  Do you allocate a certain amount of time to each?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  1. Happy Birthday Heather!!

    Your questions are ones I’ve struggled with in the past, but now think I’ve got worked out. Hopefully MizB will ask them so I can give you my answers.

    Enjoy your books!

  2. Cheryl! I love your new layout! (I know I haven’t stopped by in a while–hangs head in shame). I have got to figure out how to adjust my life back to when I seemed to have oodles of time for reading and posting and cruising through everybody else’s blogs……

  3. As you know I don’t accept a lot of ARC books, only if I really think I may enjoy them. I just received two this week, I need to read one for August, and the other one by Sept. 15. I also have my own agenda or TRB pile for August and September of some books I want to read those two months, so that will about fill my next two months of reading. Anyway….Have fun reading whatever you choose for the next few weeks or months.
