Welcome to another Blue Mondays Musings post.  To see what others are musing about, check out A Daily Rhythm.

All day yesterday, I kept thinking it was Saturday…and lo and behold, here we are at Monday!  But I love Mondays these days….remember?  That’s why I created this blog originally, as in my freelance life, Mondays are awesome.

Jen gives us topics to explore.  Here are a few:


  • 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: What was your favorite book as a child?


In childhood, I loved reading (and rereading) Little Women, and all the other Alcott books, too.  Later on, I was obsessed with Nancy Drew mysteries.  The Secret of the Old Clock is one of my faves…and I have this one, and two others from the beginning of the series.









Books are my favorite childhood memories, as my addiction began there…and grew.  And grew.


This past week, I finally experienced NetGalley for the first time.  I joined in 2012, but my old beloved Kindle Sparky did not accept those galleys.  I don’t know why.

But Pippa, my Paperwhite, does.

Here is the first book I received:


The Sound of Glass, by Karen White.





What books, new and old, remind you of your first love of books?



  1. I never read Little Women growing up but I did read several of the Nancy Drew books. I remember in third grade, we got to go to the school library once a week and a friend of mine would check out a Nancy Drew novel each week and finish reading it by Thursday….


  2. Little Women, Nancy Drew and there was another series also. I think it was called Cherry Ames, RN. I also loved going to the library for this series of autobiographies I would check out. I loved them, could not get enough! But, now it is only fiction, fiction, and more fiction for me!


  3. Oh I remember the Nancy Drew mysteries too. The 99 Steps! LOL. Good luck with the Pippa downloads. I must get on NetGalley someday.


    • I think that NetGalley will fill my reader very quickly! It is almost too much…so I should be cautious about my requests. LOL

      Thanks for stopping by, Susan, and those memories of favorite books are so poignant, aren’t they?
