question of the week

PhotobucketHere’s something we do on my HappyBookers YahooGroup loop…

…a “Question of the Week.

This week, the question was about reading habits.

When you’re nearing the end of a book, are you already thinking about what you’ll read next, or do you take a couple days to savor one story before starting another?

So how about you?

    I start reading another book right away. I usually have 5 or 6 books already picked out, put into stacks in the order I want to read them and usually are in the same genre. One week it’ll be vampires, the next week werewolves. lol

    I usually read a book a day if I can keep off the internet long enough to do so.

      I’m the same way. I’m never not reading something. But no matter how much I’m enjoying one book, I can’t seem to stop myself from wondering what I’ll read next. And I start looking/thinking about 50pgs from the end of whatever I’m currently reading. I just want to know & have it picked out & ready to go, I guess. :happysun

    When I have finished a book. I like to savor for a bit, but I always start a new book the same day. Maybe not right away, but I am never without something to read. As to the next book to choose from, which are overflowing on my tbr shelves, I look at the piles and close my eyes and point. That’s the book I will read next.. But if I have started a series of books, then I will most likely go for the next book in the series if it is on my shelf..

    • Heidi says:

      I’m like that, too, with series. Sometimes I like to dive right into the next book & keep up the momentum, but sometimes I’m sort of fried on the storyline or author & have to decide if I want to take a break or just keep going.

      And the nice thing is that I can often savor the end of one book before the next really picks up & claims my attention. :cool

    I always have several books sitting and waiting on me. I usually start a new one right away. If the book I’m is really emotional I may take a little time in between but that doesn’t happen often. If it is a series I try to read them back to back unless the books are to similar or bores me.

    • Heidi says:

      Same here, usually. Altho with me, I’ll have three or four books in mind that I think I’ll start next…& somehow always seem to go in a totally different direction. LOL
