"Would You Rather" Book Tag

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:

  1. This is a cool tag. We must be very similar because I think I’d answer all the questions the same way you did. Also, I would love it if more books were made into TV shows. I hope that’s a trend that continues.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Suddenly the saying "Great minds think alike" came to mind. LOL. I know right! Hollywood has turned dozens of books into movies, but only a handful becomes a TV show. I hope they can do something about it. ASAP.
