So … you’ve just finished reading a book. For the sake of the discussion, we’ll say it was everything a book should be—engaging, entertaining, interesting, thought-provoking. The kind you want to gush over. The question is—do you immediately move on to your next book? Or do you take time to contemplate this writerly masterpiece and all its associated thoughts/emotions/ideas for a while first? – BTT
Usually, I’ll write up my thoughts on the book for review. It really depends on my schedule. There aren’t a lot of times where I finish a book and just go straight to the next one, I move onto another activity. But this year, I did read an amazing book and often times, I feel inspired to read more because of it. So I would say I do a bit of both.

That’s a great answer. I read, I write my review and I move on to the next book! Sometimes a book stays with me, but I still begin reading the next one.

Hi Holly! I think reading a good book tends to inspire you to read more others. It gives more energy as it were. Thanks!
I agree with your answer. If its a book I loved I tend to want to write about it straight away. If I do decide to continue reading I will usually pick up something completely different maybe a bit of non-fiction or poetry.
Hey Jessica! You’re much better at picking up something different. I always need to read more nonfiction and poetry. Thanks!
