My question is, do you feel a difference when reading a book for review versus pleasure reading. By this I mean, if you agree to review a book for an author or company, do you read it differently as in more critically then when you read a book you chose yourself from a book store?
I think sometimes I do. I try to look at the book somewhat as a job. I want to make sure its well written and that its something i really feel readers will enjoy. When i sit down with a pleasure read, i don't really pay attention to that. I just sit down to get engrossed in the story and escape from the real world. I feel a difference when I sit down with a book I went out and bought and took the time to pick out. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE my books i review. Most of the time I enjoy them. I am so honored when given the opportunity to review for someone. But, I am just in a different mood when I read a book for a review.
So, fellow book bloggers, I am just curious. Do you feel like I do?
