Thank you THE BIBLIOTHÈQUE for the tagging my blog for ‘Would You Rather…’ You should read her excellent blog.
Would you rather only read trilogies or only read stand-alones?
I love to read a series. That way I get to stay in the author’s universe longer. It is hard, though, when I start a trilogy and then find out I have to wait for the next part.
Would you rather only read male or female authors?
If I have to pick, I would pick female authors. It isn’t something I consider when I am choosing a book, but most of my favorite authors are female. The only genre where I seem to favor male authors is hard science fiction.
Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?
I have been using Amazon since 1999. I love the Barnes and Noble stores, but not their website. A few years ago I started transitioning to ebooks, and it is for the silliest reason. You know those series I mentioned above that I love? If I finish a book at 10 pm, I can get the next book on my kindle immediately.
Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?
Definitely TV shows. Movies are over too fast. I like knowing that I will be able to go back to that world next week.
Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
I have to get my fix. 5 pages is less than I read before work in the morning to wake up. I suppose I usually read 4-6 books/novellas/novellettes per week.
Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?
I love escaping into other people’s worlds, so I pick professional reviewer. But I am going to keep my day job for now.
Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
New ones, because great new books are always being written.
Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?
Librarian, especially if I get to pick the books the library has on its shelves. That way i can discuss which great books to read with someone without worry over the cost.
Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favorite?
I would give up my favorite genre to have variety. Sometimes I read all vampire romances, sometimes all religion. Thank goodness I don’t have to pick.
Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?
I love my paperbacks, I have a couple thousand of them and re-read my favorites (good parts only, since I remember them well). But, if I had to pick, it would be ebooks, because more unique books by Indie authors are available.
