Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. July host is Tasha @ Book Obsessed.

I downloaded the following free e-books from Amazon:

    Fate War: Alliance by E. M. Havens
    Pearl by C. E. Weisman
    A Horse Called September by Anne Digby
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of BooksWe discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.

I posted review of:

Private Games by James Patterson

• Describe one of your reading habits.

I can't read lying down in bed. My dad discouraged that, saying it would strain our eyes. That feeling has persisted till date. I do sit on my bed, with a pillow on my back and read. 

Today’s Musing Mondays asks…

What do you think of books that give you recommended reading lists? Do you read them? Do you use their suggestions? Why/why not?

I used to read the recommended reading list given in the books when I was in college. That was more to do to enhance my knowledge in the field of study I was doing. 

Nowadays, I don't do it that religiously unless it is something I have to read. I am not much of a series reader. Having said that, I will add, it depends!!!

I used to love reading in bed but can't do it anymore. Enjoy your new books!

My favorite reading spot is a chaise on the back porch.The AC keeps the house too cool for comfort and if I crawl in bed then I end up napping rather than reading.

I like reading in bed but I never do it long because I fall right to sleep. Enjoy your books and have a good week!

I can't read face down on the bed - but mainly because the light is terrible! I read in bed a lot though!

I always read in bed; it's the only place I get left alone!
