Musing Mondays #2

Hosted by MizB (Should Be Reading)

Musing 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).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• 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.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I’d like to introduce you to this particular reading challenge i’m joining in this year. It called Lucky No.14 Reading Challenge hosted by Astrid @ Books to Share. In this challenge, you can dare yourself to read 14 books (or more) with 14 categories. You better check it out if its sounds interesting to you.

The last category in that challenge was Walking Down The Memory Lane.

Ever had a book that you loved so much as a kid? Or a book that you wish you could read when you were just a child? Grab it now and prepare for a wonderful journey to the past. Comic books or graphic novels are allowed!

I haven’t pick any title match that category. The problem is, you know, I don’t know the enjoyment of reading when I was a kid. Shame on me. My surroundings was not bookish enough, i guess. But finally, I felt the excitement of reading for the first time when I was 14 years old. Back then, I befriend this new student in my class, she often brought non-textbook to schooland she lent me books everytime she’s done with it. She has family library at her house. Isn’t she awesome? I feel so lucky to ever met her.

Back to the point, actually, my main musing was to ask you guys for a recommendation. You can share your favorite book(s) when you werechild, if you don’t mind. I’m going to consider it as my pick for walking down the memory lane category.

  1. The stories of Uncle Wiggily were some of my favorite stories when I was a child. Uncle Wiggily is a bunny rabbit gentleman and philanthropist. With the help of Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy, he helps the animal children, as well as real boys and girls to learn life lessons. This is a charming look at life before televisions and computers, where children can learn vocabulary from the past, and life lessons that are enduring. I am now a 73 year old gramma and I still enjoy reading these tales of Uncle Wiggily.


  2. One idea for you would be to check the lists of Caldecott and Newbery winners–they’re awards for excellence in children’s illustrations and writing, and there are wonderful books going back many decades on those lists.


    • I began to read Newbery list, last year and i always looking forward to what next Newbery novel i’m going to read.
      Haa, you gave me an idea. I think i’m going to check the Newbery medal/honor in the year when i was 10 y.o
