"Musing Mondays" & "Book Images Monday" Memes

This week’s musing is about reading…blogs! It is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
As a book blogger, does reading others’ blogs spark ideas for what to write on your own?
I like reading other book bloggers blogs, but whether it sparks ideas for what I will write on my blog, I don't know. Let me think about it for a few minutes...........
Since I mostly stick to a few book reviews and memes, I guess I will say, yes,  other bloggers do spark ideas for what I write.  I would not be playing along with this meme, if it hadn't sparked my interest, or any of the other memes I play along with. As far as writing book reviews, or as I call them, little memory aids for me, reading others reviews sparks ideas for what to write in some of my own reviews.  So there you go, after some thought I have decided other book bloggers blogs definitely do spark ideas for what I write on my own blog.
How about you, does reading others blogs spark ideas for what you write on your blog?


Cindy over at Cindy’s Book Club is hosting a weekly meme called Bookish Images Monday.  Such a fun meme I just had to participate.
I'd love for you to participate in Bookish Images Monday.

Remember, you do NOT have to post a ton of images--one will be fine if that's all you want to do! (I just tend to go a little crazy.)

They can just be interesting or pretty book covers if you want. Or just pictures of books, bookcases, libraries or bookstores. Or they can be humorous, or vintage, or related to movies based on books. They just need to be book-related in some way.


  1. I guess I actually do "borrow' to the extent that I partake in a couple of meme...especially Musing Monday. But then we all take that and make it unique, make it ours...our own unique voice is what I think blogging is all about.

  3. I didn't think about memes, but you are right. If it wasn't for seeing them on others' sites, it wouldn't have sparked an interest to join in. That is why I went public with my blog because I thought the memes looked like so much fun and wanted to participate.

  4. Love your book image! Book covers are so gorgeous these days! Thanks so much for participating in Bookish Images Monday...

  5. Good answer for you MM. I didn't think about memes in my response, so I had a bit of a different answer. Feel free to check out my Musing Monday here.

  6. I feel the same way about getting ideas from other blogs. When you participate in as many memes as we do, we are bound to get ideas from others. However, all our responses are unique.
