It’s the beginning of a new year and time to set your new reading challenges. Regardless of whether you track your reading through Goodreads or via spreadsheet, whether you have decided to stick to a single genre or expand your horizons throughout the year, many readers have a reading goal they want to reach by the end of the year. How do you track your reading habits?
I think many of book bloggers have been there before. You go overboard with requesting books and your TBR pile is threatening to crush you -- there’s no way you can read all of these books in a timely fashion. You’re so busy that you can’t possibly dedicate as much time as you’d like to your various platforms. Real life strikes and you find yourself unable or unwilling to keep up with your reading or your blogs.
It’s time for another discussion post! I’ve seen a lot of people talking about how book blogging and BookTube have changed their reading habits. I think that I’m a completely different reader than I was at the beginning of the year, when I started this channel. So here are the ways that book blogging have changed the way I read!
So I’ve been seeing this Twitter thing going around in which you tweet one bookish opinion per like your tweet gets. I have a LOT of opinions and 140 characters is just too short, so I thought I’d ask you guys to join in on the fun!
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.
Series are popular for authors and publishers, every genre book that's released lately seems to be part of a series. But what do readers prefer?
Readers are picky people. We are loyal to our paperbacks, hardcovers, or e-books, and often will not buy a new book until it is in our preferred format. Then, of course, there are others who are ‘hybrid’ readers. Hybrid readers will happily read one book on their Kindle and the next in physical form. So what kind of reader are you?
