Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musing

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. It has finally found a permanent  home at Mailbox Monday with the following new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree
Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit
Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach

I received the following print copy in the last week of December and forgot to mention it in my previous MM post. thanks to the author:

Chilled To The Bones by Quentin Bates

When a shipowner is found dead, tied to a bed in one of Reykjavik's smartest hotels, sergeant Gunnhildur Gisladottir of the city police force sees no evidence of foul play but still suspects things are not as cut and dried as they seem. A Gunnhildur Gisladottir mystery set in Iceland.

When a shipowner is found dead, tied to a bed in one of Reykjavik's smartest hotels, sergeant Gunnhildur Gisladottir of the city police force sees no evidence of foul play but still suspects things are not as cut and dried as they seem. And as she investigates the shipowner's untimely - and embarrassing - demise, she stumbles across a discreet bondage society whose members are being systematically exploited and blackmailed.

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about something related to books each week…

• Are “best” and “favorite” the same thing? If someone asked you “What’s the best book you ever read?” would the answer be the same as for “What’s your favorite?

I don't think the best and favourite are the same thing. I have many favourite books and those are not necessarily the best ones I have read.

One of my all time favourite is Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. However, it is not the best book I have read. There are many books which come under the best category. I am not going to limit it to one here.

I'm with you; I totally don't think "best" and "favorite" book equal the same thing ... although right now I'd be hard-pressed to pick just ONE of either! You did a LOT of reading and reviewing! Oh, my gosh! Enjoy your reading week!

What a fantastic pile of books you have. I have never got on with Quentin Bates so I'll be interested to see if you enjoy it - the blurb sounds good.

I wrote a post about the difference between best and favorite. It's hard to define but easy to recognize :)
