July 2018 Report: What I Read/Listened to/Wrote About

I’ve had a little time on my hands lately, so I’ve gotten a few more books read than usual — but fewer audiobooks. The downside to a reading burst is that it’s difficult to keep up with the posts about what you read. Oh well . . . worse problems to have.

So, here’s what happened here in July.

  1. That is a LOT of writing to have undertaken. I’m not surprised you don’t review every book you read.

    Are you a creative or mechanical writer? Can you sit down one afternoon and just pump out several reviews or does each one needs its own special time and place?

    • Most of the ones I skip are rereads that I don’t have anything new to say about (or audiobook versions of something that would just be “what I said about the book before plus here’s something about the narrator”).
      I can’t really just crank them out, sadly. Once I figure out what I want to say about a book, it comes pretty easily – that first part can be a doozy, though.
      Also, if I have an afternoon/evening when I could (or have) tried to write a few, I end up reading instead 🙂

      • Well, it sounds like you are relatively at peace with yourself about your reading and reviewing habits. Don’t change what works 🙂

        What is “gberi”? I figure either its an acronym I can’t figure out or a misspelling. Either way, I’m stumped.

        As for time, I know that my reviewing takes away from my reading time. I’ve also come to realize that I might as well not read a book if I don’t do a detailed synopsis for myself because in 5 years I’m barely going to remember it, lol!

        You and me both… Wow. I really hate my new phone’s keyboard.

        I’ve edited the original, but I don’t think that’s what I was going for…

      • Ha, phones and auto-correct. One of hte reasons I don’t comment using my phone. My fingers and android autocorrect just don’t work.
        Plus, that small screen doesn’t work for my eyes…
