This week’s topic: The End

You’ve just reached the end of a book . . . what do you do now? Savor and muse over the book? Dive right into the next one? Go take the dog for a walk, the kids to the park, before even thinking about the next book you’re going to read? What?

(Obviously, there can be more than one answer, here–a book with a cliff-hanger is going to engender different reactions than a serene, stand-alone, but you get the idea!)

Well, that does depend on the book, but the majority of the time, I do turn to the next book and dive right on in. Part of that is because a lot of the time I’m reading books in a series. If I’m not reading series books, I’m usually reading light and enjoyable books, and I’m happy to just enjoy it, and turn to the next one. If I read a “deeper” book, or one that affects me more, it is often a bit harder to just let go and move to a new book. Sometimes, however, after reading a “heavier” book, I am anxious to change to something light and fun, so again, I am happy to just dive right on into the next one. Ok, I sound like a broken record. Yes, I do believe I mostly prefer to just move onto the next book! LOL 🙂

Happy Reading!

  1. Judi Said,

    I dive right into the next one too!

  2. Gail Said,

    I usually dive right in, unless it’s been one of those heavier ones or one that might have thrown me for a loop……..then I need time to “get over” that book and digest it some before moving on. So, basically the same as you, surprise!

  3. Lauren@Baseballs&Bows Said,

    I usually dive right in, but there are occasional books that are hard to set aside!

  4. Maria Said,

    I pretty much dive into the next one too. There are too many good books waiting to be read for me not to dive in right away.

  5. mamichelle Said,

    I dive right in but sometimes I keep thinking about the last book if it was really good!

  6. Susan Helene Gottfried Said,

    There’s a lot to be said about just diving in!
