Poll: Reading in 2014

Thank you for participating in this survey.Β  πŸ™‚

I am looking forward to reading your comments. Perhaps some of you also review books. In this case: do you review every book you read – or do you also read books just for the fun of it (without providing a review).

    • This is time consuming and fun at the same time. In my case, the percentage changed from 80/20 (paper/e-reader) to 30/70 (paper/e-reader).

  1. In the past, I never reviewed the books I read unless I received them as part of an Early Reviewers program. But now that I’m running a blog, I figure I ought to post reviews of each book. Plus, it helps me remember them better!

    • It is perhaps not required to post a review for each book. Book reviews support readers in finding books they may like. Moreover, it helps new authors to get known, or known authors and their works to be seen from a different point of view. And – as you already stated – it helps to remember the books better.

    • This is true. Reviewing is time consuming. It is great that you rate the books you read on Goodreads. This helps other readers to decide whether or not a book is worth reading. πŸ™‚

  2. The human is always reading…(when she SHOULD BE showering me with affection….)… She has started reading two books at a time, so when I come stretch out on top of the one she’s reading, she can read the other one! (purrs)!β™₯

  3. Yes, I sometimes review books I’ve read. Not often and the book really has to insert itself in my skin. But most books I read I don’t review, not because i don’t like them but a question of time. I read a lot (two book per week) but if I don’t like a book I stop reading it. Too many other good books around. Hope this helps, Karen.

    • Thank you for providing your view on this interesting question. I review nearly half of the books I read. There are three reasons for reviewing: for StoryCartel and BookHub, for the respective author, for fun (as I really liked the book in question). I rarely stop reading a book. In fact, I am reading a book that seemed lengthy for the first 130 pages. Suddenly the story makes sense and do not regret having continued.
