"Musing Mondays"

MizB's Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
This week I am going to "Describe one of my reading habits." When I start reading a new book, I always turn to the last page to check how many pages is in the book. Thereafter, I try to read between 50-100 pages of the book each day. The reason for this, I have an idea how long it will take me to complete the book.
What are your reading idiosyncrasies? 


  1. Hi Gigi Ann .. We share the same habit! This is what I'm reading this week:

  2. I turn to the last page often...but to read it!
    yes, shocking I

  3. Does your eye travel to the last few words?

  4. I do the same thing...probably because I try to allocate my time with books, too. I especially want to know how many pages are in an e-book, and if it's not a book with "pages," I look it up online.


  5. My e-reader has the page count at the bottom of the screen so I can keep track of my progress. I don't think I've ever tried to figure out how long it would take me to read a book.

  6. That is a good approach! I should be more organized and goal oriented with my own reading.

  7. That's a good habit but I think if I look to the end of a book, I won't be able to resist reading the final lines. Since starting up my book blog, I always use 'post its' in my books to highlight passages or remember things I want to share in my review. I tend to read more than one book at a time and its easy to mix up storylines sometimes.
