Musing Monday...Pool or Beach? Oh MY!!

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 it.

We will discuss what I am reading right now..
and what I recently bought..
and one of my reading habits, at least when I am on vacation.
Did someone say VACATION?

I am a bit late posting this morning.
You will forgive me, since, yes, I am on vacation.
Yes, again.
This time I am in Cancun, the first time I have been to Mexico. And I just came back from a walk on the beach, watching the sun rise and the birds diving in the water looking for a bite to eat.

I am not really a hot weather person. In fact, I am a wee bit upset to be missing the cold weather and SNOW we seem to have back home. But I will soldier on! :-)

Now, you may also remember that I usually do not read much, if at all, when I am on vacation. But this vacation is different.

You get up in the morning, have breakfast and go to lay by the pool on the comfy recliner prepared with towels and a pillow by the pool boys/girls.
Float in the water until my fingers prune up.
Dodge the kids playing with all sorts of floating things.
Get my book.
Nap. Back in the pool.
Read my book.
Oh, time for a lunch time snack.

Maybe out to the beach now.
People come running to prepare my beach chair again.
Dip in the water.
 "Una margarita por favor!!"
Watch the pelicans diving for lunch.
Decisions to be made!! Go out for dinner or eat in?
Then sit on the balcony.
Stare at the rising moon.
Look at the stars.
Go to sleep.
Do it again!

So, what have I been reading this week?
Well, I think it was last year I got a review copy of the latest Peter Robinson Inspector Banks books, Watching The Dark, the 20th in the series. I prefer not to jump into a series like that, but it was not an issue, I thought, so I decided to read another.
Then I forgot about the series until recently.
So I downloaded another,
And another.

I am working my way backward through the series.
So, for this trip I loaded up the Nookbooks.
I am back to the 12th now, Aftermath, with 10 and 11 still on the Nook to read.
Of course, if need be, I can download 9...and 8...and 7...


  1. sounds like the perfect holiday ... far from the cold

  2. Oh I feel so sorry for you missing that snow! Sounds like you are having an ideal vacation. Happy sunning, napping, reading, and most of all happy "Happy Hour".

    Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to visit me today.

  3. Oh, your vacation sounds heavenly--the temperatures here has been below zero for two weeks!

    1. It is a bit warm here for me...about 80f ...but with a nice breeze..a lovely shore breeze in fact.

  4. Sounds too busy for me. I hope you get a chance to doze off once in a while. **snicker**

  5. What a relaxing and fun vacation! Sorry you're missing the snow, though.

    Also, btw, I just figured out that I can't comment on your blog (and several others) using Firefox, but can using Chrome. No idea why, but at least I now have an easy fix.

  6. Sounds like a lovely relaxing vacation! Here's what I'm reading:

  7. Oh, poor you, soaking up the hot weather (and margaritas!) in Cancun...

    Sounds terrible! Who wouldn't be late for those old boring blog
