Musing Monday


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!
Here is my Musing for Monday, June 3, 2013:
I'm sure someone has posted about this before but I always wonder how Barnes and Noble chooses which books to make, "Lend Me" books and why more new releases aren't included.  I am the first to admit that I spend a ton of money on books!  My husband often says that we personally keep B&N in business (which is of course ridiculous but he feels a need to remind me that I overspend in this area).  I have a good amount of Nook friends but whenever I check their books or just browse the on-line store in general, I am just less than impressed with the choices offered to borrow.   I was thrilled to see that they did offer the entire Hunger Games trilogy but it did me no good at that point because I had already read them all and so had most other people I knew.
I guess I understand that by putting newer books that are more in demand on the "Lend Me" list, everyone would want to borrow them and money would be lost.  It would be still be nice however, if once a month, they did something like a "hot book of the month" and gave us a great title that we only have a short time to grab or only offer to a limited number of people to grab it first come, first serve... There has to be a way to make this great idea more fun and more valuable for everyone.

Just my thoughts...  Happy Monday!  :)
