Welcome to Monday Potpourri, a place for pondering. Today we’re celebrating Musing Mondays, hosted by Should Be Reading.
I like the options available recently:
Describe one of your reading habits. • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s). • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
As I ponder the choices, I am tempted to talk about all of these topics…but, no, let’s settle for reading habits.
I think I’ve talked about how I arrange my books in stacks on my various surfaces, and how I make lists for each week’s selections. And how those lists end up on my Monday Reading post.
But beyond how I choose my books, how do I actually read them? Well, one at a time, with an occasional concurrent read if it’s very hefty.
My favorite reading spots:
And then there’s my bed:
Now that I’ve established my reading lists and how I arrive at them; and shared a peek of my reading spots, let’s consider what happens after.
Yes, the review.
I don’t usually take notes, so I review the book right afterwards, before starting anything else. Just so I won’t forget anything important. And when I post my review, it goes on Amazon, on Goodreads, and on one of my eleven blogs.
Then I link to it on various pages on Curl up and Read: books read, books purchased or review books, etc.
A little obsessive-compulsive? Yes, that’s me….sigh
