How long do you wait after finishing a book before you pick/start another one? How many books do you have planned ahead or do you pick up random books from your tbr pile (if you have one)? Do you review right away or keep reading and come back to it later?
Like most ravenous readers, I always have a stack of books on reserve, for if I didn’t, there would be definite pandemonium. But even though there may be books calling my name, I’m not always quick to grab one up. Sometimes, especially with a book I’ve dearly loved, it’s necessary to let the story sit awhile, linger in the mind, before jumping into the next reading relationship. I usually don’t plan my reading lists, I like to see what strikes my fancy. Reading is definitely mood related, and dependent on my life to a degree. When I’m really busy at work, or in an emotionally trying time, I’ll want to keep my reading light and upbeat.
This business of writing about (or “reviewing”) books is new to me, but I quickly discovered the necessity of seting my thoughts down quite soon after finishing the book. Otherwise, all the impressions and feelings seem to get swept into the cobweb strewn corners of my mind, never to see the light of day!
As I wrote yesterday, I’m currently reading multiple books, and, as so often happens in that situation, I’m not enjoying any of them very much. Apparently, I’m monogamous when it comes to my reading relationships 🙂
