Monday Memes


Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Today's question:
Do you like looking at other people’s bookshelves?
My answer:
Absolutely.  Other people's bookcase's are like magnets when I walk into someone's home. I'm automatically drawn to it.  If it is the first time visiting, it makes for a wonderful "ice breaker" and topic of conversation.  It also gives a little peek into the likes of the host/hostess. If it someone who I visit more often, I still gravitate to their bookcases.  But the conversation starts with the"what new books have you added and what do you recommened?"  At that point, I either am offered to borrow the book or grab a pen and piece of paper to write down the title(s) for when I get home to write them down on my "tbr hopefully in my lifetime list". 

August is being hosted by Staci from Life in the Thumb
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.”

Birds of Paradise looks tempting. I love the flower, anyway (so exotic!), and a book with this name sounds exotic as well.


Thanks for visiting my blog.

I like checking out others books, but since I'm the only one with the bookshelves, most everyone else checks out mine. I think that is why I like visiting book bloggers, to check out what they find interesting to read, and then of course my ever growing TRB list keeps growinnnnnng.

I feel the same as you do about the Monday Musing. I've yet to see anybody offended that I would show interest in their book collections. They are usually more than happy to talk about them.

Looking at other people's bookshelves is so much fun! My sister spent hours looking at mine the last time she was here.

I checked out the blurb for Birds of Paradise and it looks really good. Love the cover too!
