Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Each Monday, a book-related question will be posted and we blog our answers, then link back to the original post. (You can find this week’s original post by clicking on the above image).
This week’s musing asks…
What do you do with the book before you start reading it?
It depends. If it’s on my Kindle, I make sure I’m at the cover of the book and go through each page. I don’t skip to chapters, and I rarely click on the hyperlinked chapter title/number because I always want to make sure I’m going to the first page and not missing anything.
With a physical book, I may re-read the back of the book (if there’s anything there), but usually I just jump right in. I may look to see how the chapters are set up (character POVs, dated, formatted as letters, etc.) But mostly, I just start it right away.
