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?
Most of the time I go straight to my next book…especially if it’s a series and I’m able to read them one right after the other. There have been a few times when I didn’t do that…when for some reason I just couldn’t move on to another book for a day or more. I don’t know whether I needed time to part with the characters or what it was that kept me from being able to move on right away. That’s a real rarity for me though.
What about you?
