This week, BTT asks:
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 guess I'm not very contemplative. At least, when it comes to reading matter. Since I've usually got two or three (or more) books going at any given time, I don't generally spend a lot of time contemplating each one as I finish it.
Not that I don't give some thought to the books I read, or discuss them with my husband and friends, or research other books by the same author. I do. But once I come to the end of a book, no matter how much I've enjoyed it -- I move on.
