    I try to make notes, but sometimes I get engrossed and then forget. Get to the end and then panic. What was the persons name?, where was the book situated?, etc. Definitely easier to write a review with notes.

    Love this insight! I always enjoy seeing how other reviewers do their thing!

    I don’t make notes either, and if I wait a few days to write my review I feel like I lose some of my initial ideas. I usually “throw up” on the draft, and go back later and edit. 🙂

    Interesting. I have a separate notebook for review notes and I just jot down my thoughts so ranging from thoughts on writing style, characters, the floor to me fangirling it all gets shoved there. Great post!

    I love the idea of a review notebook! I may have to try that out.

    I have a habit of writing sticky notes as I read and just leaving them where ever I am. I need to get more organized or at least note what book I’m reading. The other day I found a sticky note on the floor of my car that read “you think I have the power here, but I don’t.” Creeped me out, even though it was my handwriting. I still don’t know what book it’s from.

    I moved away from sticky tabs (I used them in all of my books for English courses in college) in favor of using a notebook for book notes, but recently I’ve been returning to them because of convenience. It’s much quicker to just place a tab on a page than going into my notebook and writing down a page number or quote. These are great discussion points!

    I very occasionally make notes. Usually I read through a Kindle or a Kindle app. I regularly highlight parts and add notes.

    I read on a kindle most of the time so I can highlight my favorite quotes although I also make little notes to myself on a tear-off notepad of thoughts to keep in mind or help me in writing my review. When reading a paperback I do make significantly more written notes in addition to the page numbers of the quotes I want to use. I don’t have a review notebook but think that is an excellent idea. I currently toss out my notes when I’m done.

    My notes are a mess of everything for my blog! And they’re in a plain spiral notebook; wish they were in a pretty vintage one, haha. Great discussion!

    I enjoyed reading this post! Sometimes I write my thoughts in notebook too and sometimes if I have enough sticky tabs, I put them.

    Fun interview! I don’t have a review book – I’m kind of bad at hand writing things because my wrists start to quickly hurt. However, I probably should work out some way to write down notes as I’m going along. I have been trying to keep track of quotes as I go though!

    Great discussion 🙂 I keep meaning to take notes but it just never seems to happen. That might be why I can never share favorite quotes.

    I created a book journal binder and used to write notes for each book as I read, then had my rating for each aspect of the book printed on the page as well. I haven’t been doing it lately…and I think i might start again. Sometimes if i dont note things as i read, I’ll forget crucial points I wanted to make kn my review.
