Friday Book Blogger Hop - September 24, 2010

It's that time again!  Time for the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books!


What is it?  Well, it's a way to for bloggers and readers to find each other.  You write a little post about the subject of the week and link it up.  THEN (and this is the important part), you hit a few of the other linked up blogs (take your time; you can spread it throughout the weekend), visit, comment, follow if you like what you see, and make new friends.


Each week, to encourage participation, we get to answer a different question.  This week's question is


When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?


Well, this one's easy for me.  I've read books that started out fabulously, then crashed and burned.  I've also read books that started out so-so, but redeemed themselves at the end.  I've had the misfortune of reading review books that started out so-so, and stayed that way throughout, and that started out badly and got even worse as I went along!  LOL!


I read a book; put a draft post up with my initial thoughts, then stew on it for a while to see if it's still with me.  (Some books do that, you know .. they just stay with you). THEN I edit and post my review.


How about you?  Leave a comment with your thoughts and/or your link!

  1. I like your method... you still write the review right after reading, but still take the time to think about it! I'm too impatient!!

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
