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!

As part of the Barnes & Noble ebook settlement, I received a refund and used the money to buy the following books from my wishlist:

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, Wonder by RJ Palacino, The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson, Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton, The Winter Witch by Paula Brackston, The Yard by Alex Grecian, The Department of Lost and Found by Allison Winn Scotch, The Walking People by Mary Beth Keane, and My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling.

I just got some ebook settlement $$ from Amazon! Doesn't sound like I got as much as you, though. Of your titles, I've read Wonder and Family Fang and enjoyed them both! Family fang is pretty offbeat and quirky--and I think Wonder should be required reading in every middle school and high school.

I got a refund from Barnes and Nobel too....$.73. Don't think I'll buy a book with it! Almost all of the books I get from B & N are freebies so I didn't get a big refund

It sounds like you made great use of your settlement! Out of your books I read Afterward, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Sister but a good read nonetheless :-)

I got $5 and change, not sure how much I spent. I'm trying to read what I have, and keep from buying much more until then. The Dept. of Lost of Found was a good book though, I liked it a lot.
