This week's question...
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?
Unfortunately, these days, I have no time for contemplation. No sooner do I finish reading a book then I have a review or tour scheduled and I have to get started reading the next one.
Even before I started reviewing, I don't think I actually savored a book before going to the next one. I think I always went to the next one. I found the problem was if I read a really great book, then went to the next one - I couldn't get into the next book right away. No matter how good it is, it was never able to measure up to the first one that I read and loved. Yet, I still never gave myself much time between books.
How about you?
