This or That Book Tag

This is a book tag post!

  • Reading on the couch or reading in bed?

I do both but I prefer the bed, while on my stomach with  my book or Kindle propped up on the pillow. But now, because of my neck I am not able to do this anymore. Sadness. Utter sadness.

  • Main character: Male or Female? 

I am more of a guy’s gal so I prefer a male POV.

  • Sweet or salty snacks while reading?

I cannot eat while reading. If I snack, it’s something savory but I’ll put the book down to eat it. I cannot stand smudgy prints on my book.

  • Trilogies or quartets? 

Honestly, these days? Neither. I always find that the first book is great and sometimes the last but the stuff in between not so much.

  • First Person or Third person POV? 

I like first person.

  • Night or morning reader? 

I am one of those extreme readers. I love reading very early in the morning and very late at night.  I think that those times are tied to solitude so there you go.

  • Libraries or bookstores? 

I’m torn! I love an old library but the ones by me are very modern and full of “talk” or study spaces. It’s a new age for libraries  but I  don’t get the warm fuzzies when walking into one. So, I guess I prefer a good bookstore. One with a coffee shop!

  • Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry? 

I have laughed out loud while reading. I guess I am easily amused but it takes a lot to make me cry. I prefer books that make me laugh.

  • Black or white book covers? 

I associate black covers with vampire novels so I prefer white although they probably get dirty pretty fast for most people. I carry my books in a Ziploc bag! I’m a freak!

  • Character driven or plot driven stories? 

Character driven all the way.


Sunday Matters: Kind of Different

Sunday Matters

This stage of my life is feeling a little different from what I’m used to.

It’s less busy.

This part is nice but the high school events I’ve grown accustomed to are not a part of my world this year and it feels strange. This will be short-lived since my daughter, The Teen, will be in high school next year. Still weird though.

Right Now:

We’ve gone to church and just had some lunch. Football is on and The Hub is tearing apart a faucet as I type. The kids have retreated to their respective rooms and I am about to light some candles.

Later, I’ll be with the middle-schoolers at church and then tonight? Nothing except some TV and prep for tomorrow.

This Week:

I’ve got a physical therapy appointment on Monday. This will be #2 for me. I feel that the meds and the exercises they gave me last time have improved my neck and headache, so maybe I won’t have to go too often.

There’s rehearsal this week too but that’s pretty much it.


I had to take a break with my reading. That headache I had did me in. I hope to start again soon.


I’m going to watch The Walking Dead special tonight where they’ll jerk us around and make us think certain people are leaving but as aggravating as that is, how can I not watch??


I made pumpkin bread but then the oven caught on fire. Why? Because someone left a taco shell in there and it caught fire. So the pumpkin bread had a very smoky taste to it.

I have no idea what to make for dinner. I’m kind of sick of food these days. Nothing sounds good.

Grateful for:

Quiet moments. I’ve had a lot of quiet lately. It’s given me time to reflect on things.

How are you doing?
