Musing Mondays is a bookish meme created by MizB of the blog Should Be Reading. This is a weekly event which gently encourages us all to think about our interactions with books and our feelings towards them. Anyone can join in, so let’s have some fun!
What to Do:
- 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 and why?
- Tell us what you’re reading right now, what you think of it so far, why you chose it and what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying about it.
- Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it!
- Leave a comment on MizB’s Musing Mondays post (here) and include a link to your post.
The other day I was clearing out some old boxes in the house and came across a very old friend.
This book is twenty-four years old and has seen better days, but I can recall reading it when reading was still very difficult. It was presented to me at Sunday School “for attendance” and does hold some religious/spiritual verse, but the illustration in this book captured my young imagination.
I think that this book is quite responsible for starting my love of verse and it was a fond favourite. Finding it again was a happy moment and the familiarity of the illustrations took me straight back to my childhood. Maybe this proves that I’ve always been a book lover. Or maybe I’m a book lover because of my earliest experiences. Either way, I’ll be hanging onto this!
