Today I thought I would do something a little different, and found some bookish questions to answer!
Hardback or trade paperback or mass market paperback?
I love a hardback however I’ll have to go with paperback as that is what I tend to buy
Amazon or brick and mortar?
Brick and mortar! Book shops are one of favourite places on earth and I think its really important we support them.
Locally owned bookshop or big name chain store?
Locally owned if I can, but I don’t mind the big chains
Bookmark or dog-ear?
Bookmark! I can’t bear to ruin books.
Alphabetize by author or alphabetize by title or random?
Random, I am far too messy
Keep, throw away, or sell?
Keep, although I do try and donate books to my local oxfam book shop as often as I can
Keep dust jacket or toss it?
Read with dust jacket or remove it?
I tend to read with or I would lose it
Short story or novel?
Collection (short stories by same author) or anthology (short stories by different authors)?
Hmmm probably anthology as I like comparing different styles and techniques
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?
chapter breaks, but don’t be surprised if you find me still awake at 4am trying to get to the end
“It was a dark and stormy night” or “Once upon a time”?
Dark stormy night!
Buy or borrow?
Buy but I love to lend
New or used?
Either to be honest, but I love buying used books as it feels like they have a new life
Buying choice: book reviews, recommendation or browse?
All three! But recommendations from my mum, nana and sister are sure winners!
Tidy ending or cliffhanger?
I get very frustrated with cliffhangers but I still love them!
Morning, afternoon or nighttime reading?
I tend to not have a lot of time in the morning but I can happily while away an afternoon or evening submerged in a book
Single volume or series?
The magicians guild trilogy by Trudi Canavan
Favorite books read last year?
Probably We Were liars by E.Lockhart
Favorite books of all time?
I couldn’t say!
