Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop - September 24 - 27, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question comes from Elizabeth who blogs at Silver's Reviews.

When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?
It depends on the book, sometimes I just read so fast through a really good book that I don't stop to make notes about it, and other times I stop and make quick comments of things I noticed or liked so that I have a reference when I am ready to write my review.I really hate when I have a brilliant comment in my head and forget it by the time I try to write it down to expand upon it, so sometimes it pays to have a paper and pen handy for those spur of the moment thoughts. 

Also, Follow my Book Blog Friday!


  1. Just hopping by.
    It is better to have had a brilliant comment and lost it, than never to have had one at all.

  2. Just hopping by to say hello. Nice to have met you, I've enjoyed my visit.

  3. I think you really have to read the whole book first to get a good idea of what you want it based off of if there is a great comment I want to add I highlight the page number!
