I haven't done a "Let's Talk" post in a while, but I've been thinking recently about Blogger relations across all subsets between publishers, authors, etc...
What I must ask you all is what are you foremost, a reader or a blogger?
I know for myself personally I still consider myself a reader primarily, but the way I read books has changed immensely since I first began reviewing back in 2009. I read books thinking about specifics; How is the character development? Is this storyline overdone? Does this plot make sense? WHY did this just happen? etc...
I know that part of this has been hounded into me by school as well, but does any one else notice their reading style change do to reviewing?
I still definitely fall into stories that are fantastic and get overcome by plots and emotions, but there is always a part of me which is formulating the review I will write and thinking about things I MUST say and point out.
Any one else do things like this? Has your reading style changed from blogging?
