So… usually when I read a book I don’t really jump right back into a new one. I really love books and TV/movies (although for the latter it’s harder to find good ones) so what I do after reading a book is I find all the adaptions possible of it and watch those, while also spending a lot of time thinking about it and the parts I liked, and then when it’s finally out of my head/I find downtime I go into another book. This period is longer if I really love a book tho because if I love it a lot I legit don’t wanna give it up and go back and re-read my favorite scenes. (Especially for good romances). And it can be hard to get into a new book sometimes, so I usually start the new book slower and then get really into it and start reading it a lot lol.
Does anyone else have a cooldown period or do you just jump straight in? Why or why not? Also here’s a poll:
Do you have a cooldown process?
- No, I jump straight into another book!
- Um, I guess I have a cooldown process.
- I need like, a week before getting into another book.
- I don’t track it, but yes there’s definitely a cooldown process.
- LETTING GO OF A BOOK IS LIKE A BREAKUP AHH
Feel free to discuss below I’m very interested in others’ book reading processes!
