Mondays: Mailbox/Whereabouts/Musings

Mailbox Monday has moved over to She Reads and Reads, for the month of October.

I received two books, in the past two books:

1) Angel Mine by Sherryl Woods from Stacy of Stacy books
2) The Big Ten of Grammar: Identifying and fixing the ten most frequent Grammatical Errors by Dr. William B. Bradshaw from the publicist.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have not read anything at all this past week unless you count numerous scientific articles and poetry. I did review Angel Mine, which I read on the 26th of September.

I don't really know what I will be reading, if at all I will be reading.

What am I supposed to do in the readathon, if my slump continues?
Cheerleading, what else!

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

What’s your favorite “cozy” book — and, by that, I’m meaning “curl-up-on-a-cold-day comfort read“? Or, if you don’t have a particular book, what genre do you most feel like reading when the weather starts to turn colder?

There was a time when I used to go for those Mills & Boon and Harlequins for cozy reading. But that was a long time ago. I had the graphic novel phase too. In those days, Tintin and Asterix were very common. I loved to cozy up with those albums. Not any more. Presently, I continue with whatever I am reading. Anything goes!

Like Kathy (bermudaonion), I could probably use the grammar book. Have a good week!

I bet that Grammar book is really interesting! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

Aisle B said...

Nice books and I have to say the Grammar book will probably have me thinking about my horrendous mistakes.

Happy reading :)

That book on grammar looks awfully useful! Enjoy!

Happy reading--or cheerleading! :)

I'm sure the slump will come over me soon, too, although I have steadily read about three books a week. My goal is to work my way through those stacks!

Here's my Monday:

Slumps happen. I've been fighting one myself. And the grammar book? I don't ever tire of grammar books. I think it's the editor in me always trying to come out!

Zia said...

I hope you can pull out of your slump in time for readathon <3

Julie P said...

Oh no! I hate reading slumps! I hope you break out of it soon and enjoy some nice reading time....

Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) said...

The grammar book sounds interesting. Hope your reading slump ends soon.

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Good for you on cheer-leading for the read-a-thon. maybe while cheering you will see the book on a blog that will cure the slump :)

Cathy said...

Happy reading!

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

I hope your reading slump disappears soon. I will be reading on Saturday. Looking forward to catching up on my reading. I could really use a book on grammar.

Amanda said...

I looove grammar books, because I am grammar nut!

I can relate to your reading slump. I'm having a bit of a blogging slump at the moment, as I'm extremely busy at work. Maybe just go with the flow, accept that you're not reading much and use the time to do other things.

Just don't beat yourself up about it.

Laura @ I'm Booking It said...

Good luck getting out of your slump! Would rereading a favorite book help?

Have fun with the readathon, either way.

Yvonne said...

Cozies are my main comfort reads, although I do like romances too. I hope your reading slump comes to an end soon. I hate it when they happen.

Aths said...

I just got out of my month-long slump, so I the frustration I felt is still fresh in my mind! Just let things fall into place - that's usually the best way to get back to reading - you never know which book will be the one that pulls you out!

RAnn said...

I'm tempted to order the grammar book and give it to.....(folks whose work should be right but isn't)

Lu said...

I like the anything goes strategy!
