I don’t think this tag needs a lot of introduction..
Let’s jump right in!
Would you rather…
1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?
I know not all trilogies are the same, but most of the time the first book is the best and the rest just isn’t the same.. So I would rather only read stand alones. Then there are more different stories to enjoy.
2. Read only female or male authors?
Most of my favourite books were written by female authors.
I would never choose a book because of the gender of the author but I do think women’s stories touch me more. Maybe because it’s more likely that I can relate..
3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
I have never shopped at either of them.. I’m not really one for online shopping so I’d go for Barnes & Noble and go to their shop.. They also have cafes, right? 😉
4. All books become movies or t.v. shows?
Phew.. in movies they cut so many good parts but in tv shows they add their own stuff (which I hate.. It’s been written for you, you’re not the author, stop creating more content!!) Let’s say movies.. and have Harry Potter as an example. Although they cut out a lot of great scenes, I really like them and I can always go back to the book to read more.
5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
5 books per week.. (they would have to be short though, don’t know how I’d be able to do that otherwise..)
6. Be a professional reviewer or author?
Author!! I’ve always wanted to write my own stories..
One day I’ll write my ideas down. I know I should just start but I’m never happy about the words that appear on the paper.
7. Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
I would have to say re-read.. I can’t imagine not being able to ever read Pride & Prejudice or some of my childhood books or Harry Potter ever again.
8. Be a librarian or book seller?
Librarian.. I was a book seller once and in the end the focus was too much on the quantity of books you sold and not on the quality of the books.. I understand of course, it isn’t easy being a book seller in today’s economy.. Bookshops close every day. Libraries are owned by the city (here in Belgium), I don’t know if it’s the same elsewhere..
One day I’d like to open my own little book café, where you can have a nice cup of coffee or tea and pick a book off the shelf and read it there or buy it and take it home.. that’s my dream 🙂 Now you know..
9. Only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?
I don’t have a favorite genre.. so that means if I go for every genre except my favorite, that I could read everything.. right?
10. Only read physical books or eBooks?
Physical!!! No competition. I love paper books and I love the way they look on my shelves 😉
So there you go!
You can do this tag as well.. If you do, let me know!
