In the past two weeks:

I have scheduled review of:

Bones on Contention by Jeanne Matthews

If you knew you only had 30 days left to live, would books and reading still hold such a great priority in your life? Or, would you set aside your reading to do something else, spend more of your time elsewhere? What would you do, instead?

If I knew I had only 30 days to live, one of my priorities would be to get my paperwork all in order. I don't want my family to have problems on that account. And I would like to travel and see some of those places I have only dreamed about. Of course while travelling, I might read. Or jot down my experiences in my journal. or just enjoy the change in scenery.

The French Letters are very popular this week. Nancy, one of our reviewers, got it last week and plans to review it.

caite said...

as to the MM question, to heck with the paper work. Let them figure it out...lol
But I too would be on a plane, at once, to see a few places I have always wanted to go to.
Makes me think I should be working on that now...

Serena said...

I like that all of the books in your listen are books I haven't heard of. Happy reading

Sounds like a great week ahead!

I think that if I had 30 days to live, I would definitely try to connect with everyone I cared about and spend time with them...hopefully in some beautiful surroundings.

I couldn't find the Musings today? Is someone hosting it?

Here's my Monday:

Enjoy your week of reading.

Good idea to have your paperwork in order. My friend's husband died in a car accident 5 weeks ago and she is having a nightmare because of no finished paperwork.

Marce said...

As usual you have some great ones.

Wasn't Still Missing out of the mind creepy? Boy, it sure had me on the edge of the seat and sitting shell-shocked half the time. Have a great week! You sure read some good books in the last two weeks.

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Still Missing is on my list to be read. So many wonderful reviews of it!

It looks like our book blogging community are true book lovers!! In all the blogs I have visited, some reading would be done within the 30 days.

I passed on French Letters because I have too many books already but it sounded good. Looking forward to your thoughts.
