I have missed the last few Musing Mondays, but today I just felt in the mood to muse a little. Check Should Be Reading to see what others are chatting about.
Here are some possible topics:
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).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• 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 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!
So, today I’m going to ramble a bit, sharing odds and ends that strike my fancy.
As I posted my review today of Save the Date, I realized that I have written reviews for all the Vine and Author Review Books on my stacks through July. And there are only four on my August stacks. Although I think another two or three books are in the mail, headed my way.
It is sometimes a challenge to keep ahead of those review books, and still find time to read the books I bought, some as far back as 2011 (although there are only a few of those left!).
Another delightful piece of news (for me); on Thursday, I moaned and groaned about the new posting system at WP (My Bookish/Not So Bookish Thoughts).
And then, quite by accident, as I prepared to write a new post, I noticed a little place to click if I wanted the Classic Posting System. Yay for classic!
So all is not lost. Just as on Amazon, where there is a new system that I don’t like, with no place in it for inserting book links; however, again, magic click takes us to the Classic Mode.
Speaking of Amazon: here are my recent stats showing that I just posted my 1100th Review!

I am not as caught up as you. Wish I was.
Oh, I spend a lot of time reading and blogging and reviewing…I don’t do a lot of housework, LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Jo.
1,100 reviews–now that is seriously impressive milestone!
Thanks, Bookmammal….I had no idea, when I started reviewing back in 2008, how many reviews one could accumulate in just a short while.
What a lot of reviews you have on Amazon, I thought I’d done well when I passed the 500 mark. I was over ambitious with my review books for August a mistake I’m not keen to repeat.
Thanks, Cleopatra….the numbers just add up after a while. And yes, it is so hard to turn down review books!
Well done on 1100 reviews! Congratulations.
I didn’t make a Musing Mondays post, but did blog that it was on this date in 1850 that Honoré de Balzac died and gave a link to Victor Hugo’s “The Death of Balzac.” http://wp.me/pZnGI-bx
Thanks, Madame Vauquer….and what an interesting link! Glad you could stop by and share.
1100 reviews?? Wow! That is super impressive!!
Glad you were able to find a way back to classic mode on WP and Amazon!
Thanks, Shannon, and I am very glad I found the “click” to resume classic modes. I am surprised I didn’t notice it at first, and spent all that time fuming about it all…LOL
You are amazing!
So sweet of you to say, Patty, and thanks for stopping by….
Wow, what an amazing reviewer rank at Amazon! I think I’m in the 14000s 🙂 Now I’m off to check out the classic posting on WP. Thanks for the heads up!
I was so glad to find it, too, Mary, as I found the new way of posting here frustrating. Nothing worked quite right. Thanks for stopping by.
Congrats on the Vine reviews! I finally got caught up with July book thoughts. I agree, yay for classic, I think I am still on classic blogger! LOL
I hope they never take away the “classic” options! Thanks for stopping by, Nise, and for the congrats. I just posted reviews one at a time, and somehow they added up (from 2008 to present).
I’ve never heard of these ‘modes’ o.O I’m not very amazon-savvy I’m afraid XD
But whoaa well done on so many reviews! That’s truly gobsmacking!
No worries, Miss B….LOL; thanks for stopping by!
