Gotta Love Those Fridays!!!
Crazy For Books, gives book bloggers the chance to meet and greet other book bloggers and discuss what we all love to talk about most, BOOKS! All you have to do is have a blog that contains some content, but is not limited to book reviews, about books. Head over to Jennifer's blog, sign up, and start hopping. Who knows what you will find?!?!
Question of the week: When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?
My answer: It often depends on the book and my mood. If the book is really difficult or really long, I might jot down notes or quotes to remind me of something that I could later use in a review. I usually try to write the review as soon as I've finished the book as the characters and the events and my feelings are fresh in my mind. If that doesn't happen, it's good to have the notes to refer to.
It also depends on the review itself. I write reviews for different reasons and for different publications, and not just for my blog, some of which are far more formal and use different formats than the more informal ones I use on my blog. They require notes and a different way of writing. I also tend to be a perfectionist and when I notice mistakes, it bothers me, so notes help.
It's time to go have fun! Time to talk about books! Time to discover new authors!
Have a great weekend and happy reading everyone!
