Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Like I said in my Sunday Salon post yesterday, I found these Friday in a store I’d never been in before. But I’ll definitely be going back! They all sound good to me, but as I was getting the links for them, I saw some have low (3+) ratings. Now I’m more eager to read them and see what I think of them.
The Stand by Stephen King
I picked up the books I’m giving away tonight for World Book Night. All the books for tonight’s event have been published specifically for WBN. I can’t wait to share my love of reading with those who aren’t regular readers!!
This is a weekly event where MizB will ask a book/reading-related question, and you answer with your own thoughts on the topic.
Other than working at a job, what is your biggest interruption to reading? What takes you away from your book(s)?
For me it’s A L W A Y S been family life. Cleaning, cooking, kids, grandkids. But…the week before last I went to Pinterest to see what all the fuss was about and it just sucked me in. I’m doing better, but sometimes when you get on there one thing leads to another, to another… Then there’s email, Facebook, and so many other sites that I can’t not go to. I need to know what’s going on. And at night, it’s tv. Besides being a bookaholic, I’m also a tv/movieaholic. And I can’t forget my dog. Every time I pick up a book, she nuzzles her way between me and the book. I have to spend a little time loving on her before she’ll lay down beside me and let me read. Gotta love her!!
