A few weeks ago, I was tagged by novelist and blogger friend, Rachel Carrera, to take part in this little question and answer tagathon. Thanks, Rachel… I bet you thought I’d forgotten!
- Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?
I love reading a book series, because there is nothing I enjoy more than getting to the end of a great book and being able to dive straight into the next part of the story. The exception was the Game of Thrones book series; I was so annoyed when I go to the end of the first set of seven books and there was no resolution to any of the threads in the story, I just gave up in disgust! It went on far too long, in my opinion, and ended up being purely a money-spinner. Oh, and I do read standalones, too.
- Would you rather only read male or female authors?
I have no preference. A writer’s gender has no relevance to producing an exciting read.
- Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?
I shop wherever I feel like spending my money, and wherever I get the best service, value and choice.
- Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?
Movies, definitely. I rarely watch tv.
- Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
I would read 5 books a week, if I could. When I was younger, I would have several books on the go at once, because I was so hungry to read. Now I devote myself to only one book at a time, and rarely have time to read other than when I go to bed. I love reading in bed!
- Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?
An author, of course!
- Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?
Well, I have already been a librarian, so I would choose a bookseller this time around. I suspect I’d be too busy reading all the books on the shelves to get much work done, but at least I’d be able to make great recommendations!
- Would you rather read only your favourite genre, or every other genre but your favourite?
No. I read quite widely across most genres. I’m not into romance, chick lit, or erotica, but I’ll read most other categories.
- Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?
I love reading ebooks on my phone in bed, it’s so easy and convenient, and when you’ve finished, you can immediately download another if you want to continue reading… I love that! But there’s nothing quite like experience of reading a print book, particularly a quality hardback. If I really love a book, I always want a print copy to keep, but not all Indies produce print versions, even though POD is free and so easy.
So now you know a little more about me. My five nominees are;
Guys, I hope you don’t mind being tagged, and as I always say, there’s no pressure to take part, you are all busy people, it’s just a bit of fun!
