I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Tuesday Thingers 10 XII 08 (on a Wednesday!)
Today's topic: Most of us book bloggers like to write book reviews - if we don't love to write book reviews - but here's today's question. When it comes to LT (and your blog), do you review every book you read? Do you just review Early Reviewers or ARCs? Do you review only if you like a book, or only if you feel like you have to? How soon after reading do you post your review? Do you post them other places - other social networking sites, Amazon, etc.?
I try to review just about everything I read. Some reviews are longer than others, but I at least try to jot down at least a few lines about each book that I read. Usually if it is something that I'm reviewing as an ARC, I try to be a little more involved in my review, and I will review something whether or not I like it or not. Equally opportunity reviewing for me!
I try to review it fairly soon after I've read a book, only so that it's still fresh in my head, but that doesn't always work (and that's usually when the reviews are only a couple of lines).
I try to post all my reviews on LT, and when I think about it, I'll post them over on Amazon or B&N, but that doesn't always happen.
