I was tagged by Tiffani @ Book Venom. I found her blog very recently but it has become one of my favourites already and you should definitely check it out!
Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?
I would have to go with standalones. My reading habits are too sporadic. Meaning I cannot stick to the same genre for long, I have to switch every now and then, and reading a whole trilogy would not really let me do that. Not to mention I would most likely not always be able to read them back to back, which I don’t appreciate at all. When I read a book, I want to live and breathe in that world and watch the characters grow, so if I am reading a trilogy, I want to read everything at once; no waiting and no other books in between. But only trilogies would get tiresome, for me.
Would you rather only read male or female authors?
Hmm I think the author’s genre does not really matter much… To be honest, sometimes I do not even know whether I am writing a book by a female or male author, since they seem to love using initials these days!
What matters to me the most is what they write about. I have to tell you, I am sick and tired of reading books where the main character is a rebellious teenager. That just does not cut it for me anymore and has become one of my main pet peeves because it just seems to be everywhere.
I don’t know if women write about that more than men or vice-versa, so whoever doesn’t do that will have my preference!
Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?
I actually have no experience with Barnes and Noble. I have used Amazon for a while now and am happy enough with it. I love my Kindle Paperwhite too! So I will go with Amazon.
Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?
I will have to go with movies.
I generally do not like adaptations, since they vary too much from the book. When I read a book, I get immersed in it, I build the characters in my head and grow fond of them that way. If they are made into something completely different, I would rather be done with it in a couple of hours than a whole season.
Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Oh gosh, this one is hard. It depends on how busy I am!! If I am doing my night job I will most likely only have time for 5 pages per day! However, I could never do that while I am on vacation, for instance. I love dedicating as much time as possible to reading then, especially at the beach, so 5 books a week would probably not be a problem, depending on their size, of course.
Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?
Oh, this one is easy. I have no desire whatsoever to write a book, so reviewer it is. I love travelling to different worlds!
Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?
Hmm I honestly don’t know. Whatever requires less book knowledge? I tend to stick to my preferred genres and would not really be able to help someone outside of that box.
I have to say I love libraries, though, even though they are slowly becoming extinct, at least where I live. But the thought of being surrounded by books, in the midst of all the silence, especially if it is a more traditional one with great architecture and shelves thoroughly appeals to me.
Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favorite?
Oh, come on. That is just plain evil.
Well, as I mentioned in my first answer, I feel the need to switch genres often, so I suppose I would have to go with every other genre but my favourite.
But I would not be a happy camper. -.-
Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?
Oh man… That is haaard! I love the feeling of a physical book but the fact is they are not as practical as e-books. My e-reader contains almost 1000 books, I can choose font type and size, margin and line space, brightness, can accompany the progress by percentage, chapter and time till book is over, not to mention the battery lasts weeks… I guess my choice is made, huh?
I tag every single person reading this post!
I promise it is not because I am lazy, I would honestly love to know everyone’s answers, so consider yourselves tagged and, if you decide to do it, please post below a link to your answers so I can read them!
