Welcome to another Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading.

Here are some possible questions to ignite your morning:

• 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 it.


Today I’m going to talk about my reading habits.  I’m a bit obsessive/compulsive, so I like having visual images of the books I’m going to read next. 

First there are the lists.  And then I document what I plan to read at It’s Monday:  What Are You Reading?  It’s not as if I can’t change my plan, but it helps to have something in place.

Then I stack the books on my office coffee table, in order of my reading preference.  Again…I am not OCD to the extent that I can’t change things around.  In fact, yesterday I had a plan, but then started reading the first book and decided I didn’t want to read it….at least not now.

So I changed it up.

Here’s an example of my visual stacks from a few months ago. 

What are your reading habits?  What helps your reading flow?



  1. I guess you could say I am a moody reader. When I make a stack, it seems like the next book up, I may not be in the mood for. Sometimes I just like what I call “Mind Candy” books to read. Then other times I may want “Mind Meat” for my next read. It all comes down to the mood I’m in.


  2. I like your reading stacks. I tend to be one who plans out things too. Although not in lists so much as a mental list..and the way I set things out to read on some of my blog posts. I used to set some out on a coffee table but the cats would than decide they made the perfect place to sleep lol

    Thanks for stopping by Fire and Ice too 🙂
