Monday Memes


Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
This week's question:
Do you read books while you…
…eat? … bathe?… watch movies or tv?… listen to music?… While you’re on the computer?
My answer:
Yes to some of the above.  During the day when hubby is working, I will read while eating but not at supper, that has always been "family time" at our house.  I will also read if the TV and/or Music is on but the volume has to be very low not to distract me but loud enough to hear if there is some type of Breaking News that I may be interested in.  I'm not very good at multi-tasking so can't imagine reading while doing the other activities.

March is being hosted by Laura from I’m Booking It
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

Congrats on the Kindle... Enjoy and happy reading.

I am not a multi-tasker when it comes to my reading, I guess I am a bookworm, I crawl in my book and eat it up.

I read whenever I get the chance, but I do not read when eating with others!

Have a good week, Cheryl

Congrats on getting a Kindle! I'm debating whether to get a Kindle or Nook. I'm kinda leaning towards the Nook Color.

You can see my answer HERE

I used read while I was waiting for my computer to do something! Now I have a laptop, I have cut that out. I mute and read during commericals when I get a book that I can't put down. I used to read in the bathtub until I dropped a library book in the water!

Congrats on the Kindle. After you have gotten used to it please tell the pros and cons of it.
I am thinking of evidently getting one.

Congrats on your kindle! I got a nook for Christmas and love it! As much as I said I would never have an e-reader, I have found it very nice to have. Enjoy your kindle!

Aisle B said...

I see trouble... Kindle trouble... lots & lots & lots of KINDLE TROUBLE ;)

Laura @ I'm Booking It said...

Congratulations on getting your Kindle! I'm still trying to figure out where my Nook fits in to my overall reading, but I really like having it.

Art and Madness looks intriguing, I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.

Enjoy your reading! Thank you for participating in Mailbox Monday, and a big thank you for your kind words on my blog.

I've had a Kindle for over two years and still love it (it was a gift so I wasn't sure it was for me). I hope you enjoy yours!

Julie P said...

Have you had time to figure out your Kindle yet?

Congrats on your Kindle! I have a Sony Reader and I really like it, but I still prefer real books. =O)

Have a great reading week!
