Musing Mondays

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Musing Mondays. This week's musing asks . . . How often do you read a book, just because you’re in the mood to read it? (not because you’re obligated to for a book club, or a challenge, or for review)


I am in the midst of trying to finish reading several books for a challenge and am terribly frustrated by it. I have TONS of books that I feel like reading that are just sitting there, waiting for me on my shelf, but I feel obligated to read the ones I've committed to reading for this challenge. I keep telling myself I'll feel a sense of great accomplishment once I finish the "challenge" books and can then treat myself to whatever I want to read afterward. I'm still struggling though.

    When I have the time, I read a book every 2-3 days! But it usually is followed by mommy guilt for reading instead of -insert mom chore-

  3. I know what you mean, I have lots, lots of review books that I have to get to and it can sometimes get overwhelming.

  4. I try to include only one review book each week, with the rest from my TBR or new stacks.

    Sometimes that works....
