Here's the 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?
So, it depends on when i finish and in what sort of mood i am in. Occasionally, i'll hop right up and get on here and start blogging about why the book is so good. If i finish it because i stayed up too late, then i'll probably just head off to sleep. if i'm in a reading mood then i might just take a moment or two then grab the next (or usually just the other concurrent) book. I might grab my husband and start jabbering about how awesome it was and what it was about and whether he might like it too. so really, there are several different ways i might handle it. One thing i did as a kid but don't anymore is turn to the beginning and start again! Not sure why I don't do that now; perhaps because there is so much more to read?
