How do you review (2)

thoughtsWhen I started to review books I changed how I read.  Now when I read a book I have a piece of paper and a pen next to me so that I can write down any thoughts I have while I am reading.  Or I use the note pad in my phone.  From those often random thoughts and from my overall impressions and thoughts I build up an outline of a review which I then go back and edit to make it semi-readable.  I have a few times been too lazy to take the step to write a cohesive review and just typed up a list of thoughts I had while reading.  

However, many of the thoughts I have while reading are so specific or random they never make it into a review, and while I know they don’t I still need to write them down before I can continue to read.  So I thought I would write out a few examples of silly/random thoughts I have had recently that haven’t made it into a review.  If you like this post, let me know and I’ll do more!
