Click here to play along.




Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• I’m currently reading…
• Up next I think I’ll read…
• I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
• I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
• I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
• I can’t wait to get a copy of…
• I wish I could read ___, but…
• I blogged about ____ this past week…

This week’s random question: So, apparently Amazon is now going to pay its Kindle Unlimited & Select authors by pages read. You can read more about this {here}. What do you think of this? Share your thoughts!

I don't have a Kindle.

Instead, I'll answer the "Up next I think I'll read" prompt: The Rocks by Peter Nichols, for my new reading group (I'm facilitating the discussion) and Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave

First time to hear about either of you books. I love reading groups and it is great you take such an active role in yours.

I have a kindle but don't have Kindle Unlimited.

My two cents? I am frustrated that the books available have become increasingly shorter. Sometimes books are split into three or more books. Now, I guess we know why!

Anyway, I think this new system will reward writers who can write well enough to hold a reader's attention for more than 30 pages- 300 pages seemingly being the average length of a book under the older system. It also may encourage writers to write longer books, which would be very nice.
