This Week in Our Year

...was pretty quiet on the reading front.  Not so quiet on other fronts.  Should we read All Quiet on the Western Front soon? 

But I digress.  We only got around to reviewing one (count it) book this week.  And it wasn't all that great (not the review, the book).  Check the review for Gilead here.  We also begged you to tell us something funny to read and got some interesting responses.  I think I settled on something different.  Tune in next week about this time, to find out what it was. 

We promise to read more this week and let you know about it.  -D is almost done with his current read and -L is woefully behind on reading.

The question for this week's Book Blog Hop is do you listen to music whilst reading and if so, what do you listen to?  Well, why don't you open Pandora's box (not a promotion for Pandora, though it is currently on station Ryan Adams)?  How long do you have to discuss this particular topic?  We could start with -D's obsessive need to have "background noise" on.  Then move onto -L's love of peace and quiet, but on her own terms.  Then we could discuss the multitude of musical influences for our reading.  The discussion would end sometime next week, after we play all our favorite songs for you.

Let's just say, we do listen to background noise whilst reading and it is so varied we could not go into it here.  That and most people have never heard of the musicians we appreciate most. 

Have a great read this week!


  1. Thanks for hopping by. I love your concept - wish I could get my husband on board with something like this.


  2. Me too, Jenn! My husband won't even read my blog.

    Come on, guys, throw us a bone! I want to hear about the artists you appreciate most, and I bet I'm not the only one!

  3. Hi,

    I found you through the Book Blogger Hop. I've started following your blog and I think that it's great. I'm an aspiring writer. I write horror, fantasy, scifi,... just anything that interests me. Anyway, check out my blog:

    You could follow me too if you like it.

    Warmest regards,
    John Smith (pen name)

  4. Hi! I'm a new follower--just stopping by from the hop! As music goes--I used to have music playing all the time, but now I prefer quiet.

    Looks like a fun blog!!! Hope you're having a great weekend!!!
