Musing Mondays: Can You Wait?

Here's this week's MM, hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page. Please click here to see the complete meme and other people's answers.

How long do you wait after finishing a book before you pick/start another one? Depends on the book and the time of day I finish the book. Sometimes I need some savoring time, but generally I start a new book almost immediately, within in a hour and certainly within a day.

How many books do you have planned ahead or do you pick up random books from your tbr pile (if you have one)? I have a TBR stack, and I have a general idea of what I want to read next (for example, genre or something for a particular challenge). But I pick the specific book based on my mood at the moment.

Do you review right away or keep reading and come back to it later? I review within a day or so of finishing a book. I want the book to be at the top of my memory. I'm likely to forget the details if I wait too long.

Wow! I could never start a new book as fast you can, despite several efforts. My concentration span is extremely short! It's quite impressive that you can focus quickly on the new book.

I don't wait either and which book I choose depends upon my mood at the time.

I try to review by the end of the week.

I like to savor books that I really like as well. Our answers were similiar. My book choices change according to my mood, which is like the wind! :)

You sound a lot like me. I'm lost if I don't have a book going and I like to get my review written shortly after I've read the book.

I'm a lot like you on the first two answers. I like to wait a few days before I write my review, but I try to not wait more than a week because I'd forget too!

Sometimes I will go on book binges and start another right away. But most of the time, it's one a day or however long it takes to read it.

My post is up now.

Good answer. I always write the review after I finish the book. It's my "journal entry" day. I would re-read some key passages, let the book settle, then work on the review. Otherwise I will slack off and lose the steam.

I have got to get better at reviewing! I usually have 2 or 3 books going at the same time.
