So you guys. Since early 2012 I’ve been working on this post I wanted to do about the differences between myself as a reader before I was a blogger and after I became a blogger because my habits have changed SO MUCH. I kept putting it off because of wedding plans. I wanted to make this cute graphic that was a list but, when I finally started to work on it this year, it was just looking TOO crowded with about 30 different things and overwhelming and not AT ALL what I had in mind. Then I decided…why not make it a series? The more I thought about it — it would lend to a better discussion if I just give you one at a time. I’m kind of glad my original idea didn’t work out because I’m liking this better.
From the time I finished a book and then started a new one a few days would lapse. I would take my time picking out a book and really loved to let a book sink in before I moved onto the next one.
I finish a book and then rush right to my bookshelf to pick out a new one. If I finish it really late at night I might wait until the morning to pick up the new book but typically it’s right after I put the other one down. It’s almost this compulsion to have a book on my “currently reading” shelf and I don’t feel like I can wait a few days to start a new book or I’d fall really behind.
Let’s Talk: Even if you aren’t a blogger, how long do you wait before you start a new book? If you are a blogger, have your habits changed in this regard? Do you jump right to your book shelf upon finishing or do you let the book sink in for a certain amount of time?
