I am a huge, huge fan of book blogs in general, and as such I’ve been reading other bloggers doing ‘Musing Mondays’ for a while now. So, I’m excited to now take part. I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. For those of you who don’t know ‘Musing Mondays’ is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading where basically you are asked to answer a book/reading related question.
This week’s question is:
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
No I don’t. I usually guess at the word from the context, but even if I’m baffled I keep reading and (maybe) look it up later. I don’t like to disturb the reading flow. I seriously hate footnotes for that very reason too, but find myself compelled to look at them anyways.
