Musing Mondays: A Reader In Motion

Today’s Musing Mondays (hosted by A Daily Rhythm) has an interesting random question.  But first a couple of other things.

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

  • I’m currently reading… The Fold by Peter Clines, Alive by Scott Sigler and Doctor Who: Frontios by Christopher H. Bidmead
  • Up next I think I’ll read… Star Trek: New Frontier — The Returned, Part 1
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…  I’m currently on a big time re-watch of The X-Files, including doing recaps of my thoughts about them.  You can read along if you want!

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Are you able to read while in a vehicle (in motion)? Have you always been this way?

Thankfully, the answer to this one is yes.  My dad was career military and summer time growing up sometimes meant moving — usually by car.  We traveled cross country a couple of times and I read a LOT of books on those trips.  In fact, I recall my mom and dad would buy me a couple of books that were meant to be saved for our trip.  They’d sit tantalizing me on my bookshelf for a few weeks before we finally got into the car and after I got tired of looking out the window, I’d crack the covers and get reading.   In fact, this was one of the ways I got into Star Trek — reading novels based on the shows during cross country trips.

  1. I cannot wait for the return of The X-Files I am enjoying the countdown re-watch very much. For a long time the only way I could get my Star Trek fix was through the novels – they are still sitting on my shelves with yearly re-reads of my favorites. What a fun and frustrating way to encourage you to read by saving some books for that trip. 🙂
