This week's question is:  Do you take notes about the book you are reading as you read? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

MY ANSWER: Yes. Yes I do! It used to be that I just took a few notes on the plot and whatnot in order to help me with my review later one, now I take notes on all the plot details right to the very end! Mostly so I can then transfer those notes into my "book journal" so I can reference all those notes come the following year (or possibly later) when I read the next installment, I'll have myself my own summary/recap of sorts so that I am not totally lost going in!

Wish I would've done this sooner because I've several series I am in the middle of that I didn't take these detailed notes, nor do I know where those initial notes are either! My notebook for note taking is anything but organized! Lol! Working to change that once I've used up all the available paper in this one!


  1. I wish I could remember everything and not have to just reread the first book in a series before I read the next one. But I read so much I don't think note would help me either lol. Blogger Hop Post

  2. Notes do help a lot.

    I do something similar.

  3. Great process! Notes definitely help with remembering and reviewing later on! :)

  4. I don't take notes, but I definitely think it would be helpful, especially when I accidentally forge to write reviews right away...

  5. Hmmm, I never thought about it for series. I don't like marathon reading a series as there are usually some sort of quality deterioration at some point. (Not in a bad way, but there's always a few books that don't live up.) I do have pretty good memory recall, but it doesn't always work.

    I do need to do it for review purposes though!

  6. Oh, that would be really useful for series when you're waiting for the next installment. You're smart! Hope you have a great weekend. - Katie

  7. Keeping a "book journal" is a smart idea!
