I don’t want to tag anyone and make you feel obligated, so this is a fun “do on your own” thing! If you’re a blogger and you’ve done this tag, I’d love it if you linked it in the comments! If you are a blogger and you decide to do this tag now, I’d love it if you linked it!
I saw this book tag at Beth’s Fuelled by Fiction and thought I’d share in as well!
1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?
I prefer stand alones, because there are so many trilogies and series out there it’s slightly ridiculous. I want to read and be done, usually, and move on to another book.
2. Read only female or male authors?
Ehhh. Probably female authors. It’s not that I’m sexist when it comes to reading, because I do want to read more male authors, but I predominately read female authors.
3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
Barnes & Noble is just too…pristine for my taste. I feel an overwhelming sense of OCD whenever I walk into one. I enjoy shopping on Amazon IF I have a giftcard. Otherwise, I do most of my browsing, perusing and purchasing at Half Price Books. It’s my kind of organized messy. I enjoy being with the books, touching them, reading the covers, leafing through shelves, going on the hunt for a book. I also love seeing parents fostering a love for reading with their children at the children’s corner. 🙂
4. All books become movies or t.v. shows?
Can I say neither? LOL. I guess movies. TV shows drag things out and add in additional things.
5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Really? Do we even need to go there? Hello, 5 books!
6. Be a professional reviewer or author?
Professional author. I have always loved both reading and writing, but I started dabbling heavily in writing for quite some time. I have left it hidden in the recesses of a notebook (and maybe some computer files, if they survived through 3 computers). I’m finally in a place where I can give myself to my writing in the way I need to, so I hope to get back to that. 🙂
7. Only read your top 20 favourite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
I will reread three of my favorites at various times (Outlander, Wild Bells to the Wild Sky, Looking for Alaska) when I feel the need, but I do need to read new books. I haven’t done a reread in at least 3 years, so I read newer books more than rereading.
8. Be a librarian or book seller?
Definitely librarian. People who come to the library do so because they have a love for books. Who better to talk to – and what better job to be able to read books – than a librarian?
9. Only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?
Umm…I can’t really say I have a favorite genre. I expanded my reading horizons and I enjoy several. I guess I’d say my favorite genre: fiction. Voila!
10. Only read physical books or eBooks?
Oh, please don’t do this to me! This question kills me every time. I LOVE having physical books. Touching them, the feel of well-worn pages, the smell. That will never get old to me. I will always love the feel of a real book in my hands…but I really like the ease I have with reading on my Kindle — in the dark! — and being able to take it everywhere without it being ruined by stuffing it in my bag. Plus, FREE books!
