Ask any of my close friends and family and they’ll tell you that I have the shortest attention span of anyone they know.
In fact, it often makes me struggle to finish books in a timely manner because I JUST CAN’T FOCUS.
Well…Friday I had an idea that made reading much easier to focus on.
I wrote notes to the next reader.
No, not IN the book, I put them on sticky notes…I hate writing on the actual pages- negative.
Last year at RT convention, my friend who went with me was SO EXCITED about Kasie West. I’d never read any of her books, but she assured me that I would like her books.
As luck would have it- I ended up with a copy of one of her books from the day and got to meet her and get it signed at the same party.
…That conference was a year ago yesterday and I still haven’t gotten around to reading that book.
So I kept seeing that Kasie has a new book coming out, PS I Like You. I requested it from Scholastic awhile back and got an ARC.
I promised that friend she could read it since she’s who told me about Kasie and decided to start it last Friday. I decided to write the notes originally just because it was my first Kasie West book and I knew she’d think it was funny.
I finished and got the book to her Saturday and earlier I got a notification on Instagram that she has finished and added notes.
It looks like this now with many more notes not hanging out of the sides where they are visible.
This was such a FUN way to pay attention to what I was reading and still also be able to share my thoughts with the next reader as they read it.
Plus, I just find it hilarious that she added her own notes too!
A review is coming for this book SOON, but if you’re a Kasie West fan, or even just love a cute contemporary romance, order it ASAP!
Now what can I decorate with sticky notes next…
