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 about it.
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I'm rather excited about the book group choices for this summer. We've got one classic: Islands In The Stream by Hemingway, then Rowling's The Casual Vacancy, and then Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. And the first two gatherings are at funky and fun local restaurants. One of the most fun parts of belonging to a reading group is selections of books I probably would not have picked up on my own. I read out of my typical genre. Like the Hemingway--I NEVER would have picked that up.

You should check out Goodreads for good reading groups. I haven't read the classics in a long time. I should pick them up again.

I have been wanting to read some Hemingway but my TBR list is so long I might never get around to it! Just letting you know I stopped by and visited your blog today!

I like the goodreads reading groups for the same reason :) Some of them also have really good conversation about the books afterwards, which can be a lot of fun.

I like that about book groups too. It forces me to read outside my comfort zone.
