How's it going booksnakes? The weekend is fast approaching and it's time for some well-deserved RnR. Or in bookworm language, Read and Relax. But before we go into our batcaves, I'd like to share somethig with ya'll real quick.
Denise from I Am Shelfless (Yes, I agree that it's an awesome name) sent me a message on Goodreads the other day, telling me that she tagged me in the "Would You Rather Only Book Tag". So of course I had to check it out because I NEVER say "no" to awesome things like this. It's relatively easy; I just answer the same set of questions the person who tagged me answered, then I tag 3 other bloggers to answer them as well! Let's begin!
Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?
I like reading series, but there's just something about a book that gives you closure when you flip to the final page that attracts me more.
Would you rather only read male or female authors?
Yikes. I like reading books by male authors because I get more insight on how a man thinks. But they don't normally write romance books, so I'll stick with my ladies. *grins*
Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?
I haven't really tried shopping in Barnes and Noble. Always have been a solid Amazon shopper. (Though I really like B&N's blog. They have really cool posts.)
Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?
It depends on the length. If it's a standalone, then a movie should be its route. But if it's a really long series, (meaning longer than a trilogy) then I'd like to see it on TV.
Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
I CANNOT read just 5 pages in a day. I can't even do that in one sitting! I need at least a chapter every time I hold my e-reader. So 5 books per week it is.
Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?
Oh goodness me. I'd LOVE to be an author, since I believe I have some pretty good stories brewing in my noggin, but I'm a copywriter/copyeditor. I'm good at giving information, not telling stories. Also, editing other people's work and breaking things down is one of the things I think I'm good at. With that said, it's quite obvious as to what path I ought to take.
Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?
Uhm. Uhm...Librarian, I think. I'd like to believe that they actually have a deeper relationship with books, as well as greater passion for reading and gaining knowledge.
Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favorite?
Favorite genre. I'm normally a very adventurous person...just not with books. I mean, I read a few creations from different categories every now and then, but I still go back to my romance novels and all its sub-genres.
Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?
There are advantages to having both. I love the authenticity that a physical book offers; the paper smell, page-flipping sound, and even the bookmark you use. But the thing is, there are MANY talented authors who only gets published digitally. If I limit myself to paperbacks, I won't have the chance to know them. I've always been keen on indie authors and newbies anyway, so if I had to be exclusive, I'll go with my ebooks.
Thanks so much Denise and everyone else who took the time to read my answers. I believe I have to nominate three other bloggers now, but i'd like to deviate from the plan a bit. I'll be nominating 5 fellow bloggers, and here they are:
