Book Blogger Hop - 11/16 - 11/22


Question of the Week:

Do you take notes about the book you are reading as you read? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

My Answer: 

I do not take notes, but I do something similar.

I actually begin writing my review while I read and keep updating and editing what I have written so it is almost complete when I am done with the book.

It works very well for me. 

Looking forward to seeing if anyone takes notes or what their method is.

  1. Wow! That's an interesting method! I end up taking notes myself! I then can use them later to refresh my memory of a book that's apart of a series!

  2. You're smart to do that - I get way behind from time to time.

    1. I like that method because I am pretty much done with the review when I have finished reading the book.

      Thanks for commenting, Kathy.

  3. I wonder if I could review write while reading a book...it would certainly keep me from getting behind on review writing like I am now.

    Hope you have a great weekend. - Katie

    1. You could give it a try, Katie.

      It is easy to write your thoughts down as you read. It works for me, but perhaps not for everyone.

      Let me know if you give it a try.

      Thanks for commenting.

  4. That's a good idea! That way you don't forget anything you want to say.

  7. Interesting approach, Elizabeth! I would never be able to do this while reading fiction, though. I might try it in the future, when reviewing nonfiction.

    When reading fiction, I get into the story to such a degree that I'm unable to pull myself away in order to take notes. I actually do get lost in the book!

    As for nonfiction, I have in the past done a VERY naughty thing =- I highlighted passages in a couple of books.... And, in one of them, I actually WROTE IN THE MARGINS! Well, I got SO mad at myself!! So I went ahead and ordered NEW copies of these very SAME books! Lol. That way, I had pristine copies in my collection!

    Needless to say, I never did this again, lol. I can't afford to keep buying duplicate copies of books I've decided to highlight and mark up! Lol.

    What I've decided to do is to get notebooks that I can use as book journals. Some people might use Post-It Notes, but I don't like that, either. So I think I'll go with book journals. BUT, only for nonfiction!

    Thanks for sharing! Have a WONDERFUL weekend!! HUGS!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

    1. I am glad you don't highlight in books any more. :)

      Notebooks are perfect and much better for you and the books. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Maria.

  8. I never begin writing my reviews until I've actually read the entire book. Many times my opinions about the book will change while I'm reading it.

  9. This is the second post I've read where people kind of write their blog post as they read the book. I've got to get it together. Great post!
