Mondays: Whereabouts/Musings/Mailbox


In the past weeks:

I finished:

Last Last Chance by Fiona Maazel

I am still in the midst of reading:

Lamentation by Ken Scholes

I posted reviews of:

Inside Out by Barry Eisler
Virgin Widow by Anne O'Brien


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Can you read amidst distractions? (tv, others talking, sporting events, etc)

Actually I can. I do it all the time. In trains, in waiting rooms, TV in the background, loud music (that is, rock) playing. People talking. Etc etc. With a book I can simply close the world out.

For my reading, it doesn't really matter if it is quiet or noisy. I can read in any environment.

Monday Mailbox is hosted by Marcia.

I didn't receive a single book! How is that?! *grin*

I need a quiet week like that.

Staci said...

I'm not feeling like reading right now...wonder if it's contagious!!

Enjoy your week!

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

I like the book you are reading now and hope you have a wonderful week :)

Cass said...

Just letting you know the link to Inside Out review is incorrect. You might want to fix that up. :) I've read only 2 books a week for the past 2 weeks...this week is looking the same.

Check out my post, and feel free to enter my contest.

I prefer the quiet. Here's mine

Mondays are full of memes, aren't they?

I should put mine all in one place, but I haven't yet.

I'm responding to the Musing:

Especially if the book is good....
It is not that I do not mind the noise...I need it. I am afraid I am one of those TV on, as background noise, all the time folks. I read, write, work...do everything with the 'distraction'.

Kaye said...

That's ok - gives you the chance to catch up some. Have a fun week.

Stephanie said...

I haven't read any of the books you have listed, but they sound interesting and I've added a couple to my wish list.

Have a great reading week!

Jess said...

I actually like when the doctor is running late, so I can spend some quiet time reading in the waiting room! (Terrible, I know.)

NancyO said...

Are you going to read the sequel to Scholes' book? I've heard it's really good.

Enjoy your week! I'll check back soon.

Anna said...

Well, a quiet week means more time to clear some books off the shelf. :)

Bookventures said...

That's a blessing, Trust Me!!! My to-read pile is like 19 books and I'm beginning to panic because more keeps coming in. : ) I hope you have a wonderful week though.

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

Sometimes quiet weeks are good. Maybe next week will be better.

Crystal said...

Two new books for me to check out - I haven't heard of the one you finished or the one you are reading now.

I agree about reading with distractions - I use to not be able to do it, but now it's no problem.

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

My book receiving has greatly slowed down and I am happy about it. I couldn't keep up the pace of the books coming in compared to being read. Still digging myself out :)

Lamentation sounds good!

Stephanie said...

I have 3 kids, so reading amid distractions is my life. :-) I find that, like you, I can read in any environment, unless the book is particularly challenging or I'm especially tired.

Sassy Brit said...

Well you have time to catch up on anything else that tickles your fancy this week, gautami tripathy :)

Thanks for stopping by!

jlshall said...

I can read just about anywhere, under any circumstances, too. But I do prefer a quiet space with good lighting. Doesn't always happen that way, though.

Hope you enjoy all your reading this week!

lizzy J said...

No books this week? I do not know how you managed that one. I got in the mail today after my post went up The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir in hardback from my wish list on paperbackswap.

DCMetroreader said...

I think a slow week is sometimes a good thing -- gives you a chance to catch up. Happy reading!

Yvonne said...

I prefer the quiet to do my reading.

I didn't receive anything until Saturday. I expected to be skipping the meme this week. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your poetry blog link. Pussreboots.
