For day three we're talking about our lives beyond reading and blogging. Because yes, those don't take over our lives. ;)
Beyond the traditional form of the novel, what are your favorite alternative forms (graphic novels, audiobooks, webcomics, etc)? Do you have any favorite works within these alternate forms? How do you think the changing format affects the reading experience?
While I do read graphic novels occasionally, I don't often. The same goes for webcomics. I actually follow a lot of webcomics, but I'm behind because life is getting in the way right now. I have listened to audiobooks before, and my husband Nick likes listening to them often. I have a hard time focusing though so I don't do that often. I prefer ebooks, and often take my Kindle with me on the bus ride to work (since it's almost and hour) and I can squeeze in a lot of reading time that way! I know many people don't like the idea of ebooks because it's not a traditional book, but I still love my paperbacks and hardbacks. I usually save those for home reading because it's easier to keep them from becoming damaged.
Our secondary topic, beyond the blog could focus on the ways you engage in talking about books outside of your blog. Do you participate in book clubs, take classes, meticulously maintain your goodreads profile? Let the world know!
I've never done a book club, but I've always thought it was a fun idea. When we move back to Oregon I'm planning on looking into one because I think it could be fun and I get to make a lot of friends! As far as Goodreads, mine is not updated at all. It's on my life of things to finish when I move back and start blogging more, but until then it's nowhere near accurate! I tend to spend hours ranting about books to my husband instead, it's helps get my frustrations out ;)
What sorts of bookish things do you do besides your blog? What other book forms do you read?
