Mondays: Mailbox/What are you Reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. This month it is hosted by Cindy of Cindy's love of Books.

I received one novel this past week, thanks to a publicist.

1) Inspector Singh Investigates: A Curious Indian Cadaver by Shamini FlintInspector Singh is sick of sick leave, so when Mrs Singh suggests they attend a family wedding in Mumbai, he grudgingly agrees - hoping that the spicy Indian curries will make up for extended exposure to his wife's relatives. Unfortunately, the beautiful bride-to-be disappears on the eve of her wedding - did she run away to avoid an arranged marriage, or is there something more sinister afoot? When a corpse is found, the fat inspector is soon dragged into a curious murder investigation with very firm instructions from Mrs Singh to exonerate her family. But as he uncovers layer upon layer of deceit, he knows it isn't going to be that easy.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey

I finished reading:

Sleeping Love by Sara Curran-Ross

I am in the midst of reading:

Calico Joe by John Grisham

Do you listen to audiobooks? If not, why not? And, if so, what has been one of your favorites, so far?

No, I don't listen to audiobooks. Never have and I really do not why I have started. Maybe someday soon!

Calico Joe is one of the books I snagged at the library conference last week. I am curious as to what you think of it.

I've tried to listen to audiobooks and it doesn't work for me.

Happy reading!

I've tried also to listen to audio books and just can't get into it. Here's my Musing

Inspector Singh sounds like an exciting read.

I have never heard of that book until today. It sounds like it might be a good read. I look forward to your review.

After reading a lot of Musings, I think I'm going to try audiobooks.

The Inspector Singh book looks interesting.

I have tried listening to audio books, but I am too easily distracted. The only time I successfully finished one, was when I sat at my computer and did nothing but stare at the blank screen while the book played. Still, I'm a big Doctor Who fan, and I've been working my way through the New Series Adventures books, and some of the stories are ONLY available as audio books. So I guess I'll have to try again.

PS, who hosts Musing Mondays? You? Where can I find more info? Please email me at michelleepotter [at] gmail. Thanks! :)

I don't do audio books, either. Reading, visually does something to relax me and listening to other people read sort of stresses me out!

My mind wanders too much for audio books. Happy reading!
