Monday Malaise

Perhaps, a better title would be Monday Musings

malaise |məˈlāz; -ˈlez|
A general feeling of discomfort, illness, or uneasiness whose exact cause is difficult to identify : a society afflicted by a deep cultural malaise | a general air of malaise.
ORIGIN mid 18th cent.: from French, from Old French mal ‘bad’ (fromLatin malus) + aise ‘ease.’

Musings would be much more positive, or less dismaying, wouldn’t you agree? It’s just that I didn’t get any new books so I can’t do a “Monday Mailbox” and I really wanted to post something.

So, what I do have for you today is a question. I am about 10 pages away from the half way point in the Readalong of Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell.  Do I stop and write up my post which will be published HERE on Friday, March 16? or do I take a break and go back to 1Q84 (Book 3 is waiting) – or – Read the second of A.S.Byatt’s double novella Angels & Insects? Do I do a review of the first novella?

Or fill up my blog with random things?

Or announce BLOGGIESTA?  (Yes, I will do that. This week. It’s scheduled for the last weekend of this March, by the way.)

Or _____(fill in the blank)__________? (Feel free to suggest something in the comments.)
