Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musing

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books
Jennifer of Mrs. Q Book Addict is hosting MM for the month of July.

I received one e-books, thanks to the author: 

Happiness Comes From Nowhere by Shauna Gilligan

Happiness Comes From Nowhere follows the lives of the Horn family: Mary, Sepp and Dirk. Their paths cross and intertwine with those of extended family, friends and acquaintances as journeys are made through the changing city of Dublin. People also venture further in search of happiness: Mary and Dirk wander the streets of Rome and Ita watches a cargo ship unload in Spain. Expressed in ways as different as suicide, art and sex, the inseparable pangs of loss and happiness – remembered and present – are threaded through the novel.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book 

I finished reading:
Double Trouble by Deborah Cook
The Ninth Step by Barbara Taylor Sissel
The Love of a Stranger by Anna Jeffrey

I am in the midst of reading:

Varied novels

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

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

My questions:

1) Have you ever considered colour coordinating your books on your bookshelves?

2) What is the best way of cataloging our books? (We all know about library cataloging and that is NOT I mean)

3) What attracts you to a book blog?

4) What puts you off in a book blog?

5) Do you share personal stuff on your book blog?
