Due to the lure of summer and the demands of work and children, I’ve been neglecting my blog. I’m down from 3-5 posts per week to 1-2. It’s not that I have less to say, only that I have less time to say it.
But I have been reading! I read during the kids’ pre-lifeguard classes at the high school. I read while watching their back handsprings and round-offs during tumbling. I read on the front steps of the library as the girls return their books and look for new ones. I read at the roller rink while they skate. I read in the food court at the mall as they and their friends spend an hour at Claire’s poring over $2 earrings and purple and green nail polish, or visiting the puppies at the pet store. I read while sitting at the pool as they perfect their dives and their butterfly stroke. “Watch me, Mom!” “Time me, Mom!” “On a scale of 1-10, how good was my dive?” My To-Be-Reviewed stack is piling up.
Speaking of reviews.. I have a few questions for my fellow bloggers.
How long, on average, does it take you to write a review?
Do you read other reviews before or after you write yours?
Do you write your review immediately upon finishing a book, or do you wait a while and let it sink in a bit?
Do you pick up a new book to start the minute you finish one?
Inquiring minds want to know!!
