The End, BTT

You’ve just reached the end of a book . . . what do you do now? Savor and muse over the book? Dive right into the next one? Go take the dog for a walk, the kids to the park, before even thinking about the next book you’re going to read? What?
(Obviously, there can be more than one answer, here–a book with a cliff-hanger is going to engender different reactions than a serene, stand-alone, but you get the idea!)

It depends on the book. If it is a awesome book, like The Other Boleyn Girl, I like to savor it for an hour or two. If it is a book that is part of a series, like Cup of Clay, I want to read all the books in the series right away. I also put a book down because I did not want to continue because I was shocked like in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince but I had to keep reading because I had to find how the book was going to end. If you read the book you know what I am talking about. If it is an average book, pick up the next book right away to continue the search for that awesome book that stays with you for a little bit.

You are right about series books. I tend to get myself into a bind and want to read more of the series but don't have the books on hand:(

I have been known to run to the bookstore or the library to get the next book in a series.

I'm not so keen on reading series from start to finish any more, though I used to go straight through all available titles. I always make sure when I'm over halfway through a book that I have something new to go on with, though these days I have a pile waiting to be read, so that's no longer a problem.
