Booking Through Thursday - Discuss

Question of the day:
Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?
Answer: Yes. And, yes.

One of the things I love about this blog is that I can discuss the books I've read. It's a great record of my reading life. (Although it doesn't cover all the books I start and decide not to finish for whatever reason.)

Here's how I keep track:
  • I keep a Commonplace Book - I've seen these called Chapbooks elsewhere around the 'webs.
  • I write down each book as I finish, the author, whether fiction or non- and the date I finished
  • At the beginning of a new month I write up a review post of the previous month
  • At the beginning of a new year I do a "Reading Year in Review" for the previous year
Beyond this blog, I also love discussing books. Sometimes it's hard to get me to talk about anything else. My husband and I talk about books all the time. My dad discusses the books he's reading. My mom talks about the books she's reading. My mother-in-law sends me reading suggestions and we talk about books.

It's starting to sound like the harder thing would be to get me to stop talking about books.

How 'bout you? Do you have someone to talk with?

You are fortunate to have people in your life who enjoy books. I don't have that right now (except for the blogs, and they are a huge part of my life!); but I'll bet I could find a book club in real life.

I should.

It makes reading the book even better.
