Today’s challenge involves bookish confessions. Since I don’t recall any laugh out loud embarrassing book related stories (except for that one time at Books a Million…), I’ll be doing the “This or That” portion of the challenge (although I like to ramble, so my answers will most likely be very long!)
Physical book or eBook?
Physical books! I Wish I had an eReader because my purse (AKA Book Bag) usually weighs about 10 pounds (I’m really not joking!)
Paperback or Hardcover?
Paperback! I just don’t like hardcovers, but since new releases are generally only available in hardcover, I don’t have much choice.
Reality or Make-believe?
Make-believe! Who wants to read about the real world?
Adult or Young-Adult?
Young Adult! I’ve read maybe 2 adult books in my life, and I didn’t exactly enjoy them. I’m happy reading Young Adult books for the rest of my life!
Dog ears or Bookmarks?
Bookmarks. I only dog-ear books if they’re old books which have already been dog-eared on that exact page and my bookmarks have gone missing.
Breaking the spine or Barely open the book?
I tend to lean towards the “barely open the book” side because when I see a cracked spine I come close to tears.
Tea or Coffee?
Umm…neither. I’m proud to be caffeine free!
Reading in bed or On the couch?
I do almost all of my reading in bed, even though I can’t sit/lay comfortably in it, because my family is very loud, and I need peace to be able to read.
Series or Standalone?
I don’t have a preference really, but I hate long series! Usually after 5 books, the story goes downhill and only exists to make more money.
Original or TV Adaptation?
Um, I don’t watch TV…
Defy motion sickness or Audiobooks?
I assume we’re talking about reading in moving vehicles. Most often I prefer audiobooks, but whenever I’m in the car long enough to listen to any part of an audiobook, those sitting in the back seat are making sure I won’t be able to hear it. That being said, I usually get dizzy while reading in cars, unless I’m super absorbed, in which case I don’t care (I finished Mockingjay on a 3 hour road-trip!)
Author crushes or Who-was-that-guy-again?
I don’t crush on authors, but I can remember their names, so I’d say I’m somewhere in-between.
Interview or Guest post?
Interview. I’m just not a big fan of guest posts.
So there you have it! I’d love to read your confessions!
