Musing Monday (February 4)

Musing MondayMusing 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.

Yesterday, I started Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.

When I first saw people talking about this book, I didn’t know…

1) that it wasn’t a new offering. The book originally came out in 1977. I guess all of the current hype is because the movie adaptation is coming out this year.

2) that it was the first in a series. I hate, unknowingly, getting started with a new series! I especially hate it when I start with book 3, 4 or 8. I dodged a bullet this time.

The good news is, I am enjoying this book so far. The story is full of some thought-provoking ideas and there is enough action to move things along.

The bad news is, I think my wallet will be taking a hit in the future because there are 14 books currently, and another planned for future publication.

Have a great week of reading!

About Paul H-C

Just an avid reader in the little town of Bangor, Maine (Yes, that Bangor...home of Stephen King). When I'm not reading and drinking coffee, I sell cell phones by the sea shore.

  1. I read the book in the 80s and I remember very little about it. I don’t know if I am up for trying to read it again. 🙂
