Booking Through Thursday...Contemplation

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?

I pretty much move on to the next book.  I'll contemplate and muse over really good books and even savor them, but it doesn't stop me from moving on to the next one.  Part of that is the fact that I have scheduled tours or reviews and part of that is just this inborn desire to continue reading.

What about you?

Go here for more interesting BTT posts.


  1. I think about the books when I'm doing reviews. Otherwise, I'm like you and move on.

  2. I move on straight away. Finishing a good book makes me want to get into another one even faster

  3. I'm pretty much the same way. I move on to the next book.

  4. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Ah yes reviews do help me cleanse my palate and move onto the next book.

  5. I definitely agree. I have a need to move onto the next book after I write my review. Thanks for stopping by my BTT!

  6. I read my books, post my reviews, and move on to the next book.

    Thanks for the visit today.

  7. I guess my only contemplation time would be when I write the review, then I have to move on too.

  8. A tried and true process....thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy your reading.
