Would You Rather: Book Edition

1. Would you rather read only trilogies or only stand alone novels?
Stand alone novels will always be my ultimate favourite. Sometimes trilogies end with everything too neatly tied up at the end, or are so much longer than they need to be and I suppose I just like having a complete story in a single book.  

2. Would you rather read only male or female authors?
I don't think I could ever choose. 

3. Would you rather shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
If I had an unlimited book buying budget, I would always shop in actual bookshops. You can't beat the joy that comes from wandering the shelves and discovering something unexpected.

4. Would rather books became films or TV shows?
Films, I think. My pet peeve with TV shows is that they always drag things out for too long and I end up losing interest. So I think I would prefer having to have bits left out of a film to having things added into a TV show. 

5. Would you rather read 5 pages a day or 5 books a week?
Five books a week. More is more! 

6. Would you rather be a professional reviewer or an author?
I would love to write a book even though realistically I probably only have one good (maybe mediocre) novel in me. Maybe one day!

7. Would you rather read your favourite 20 books over & over or only read books you've never read before?
The joy that starting a new book brings is something I couldn't live without.

8. Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?
I may hold distant dreams of opening my own independent bookshop one day, so a bookseller for sure. 

9. Would you rather only read your favourite genre or every genre except your favourite?
That's a very good question and my answer is probably a bit of a cheat because I don't think I have a favourite genre. I like literary fiction but I suppose if I had to read only that it would be a bit much, so I guess I'd read every genre except my favourite in that case.

10. Would you rather read only physical books or ebooks?
I'm all about the physical books and so far haven't been able to get used to reading ebooks.

  2. This is such a lovely post! Although I have a Kindle, I far prefer reading actual books - you really can't beat it!

  3. I love this post! Totally agree about bookshops, I could lose hours in there.. I keep making the mistake of going into my local Waterstones to kill ten minutes but I can never leave without buying something...

  4. I love this post, I have a kindle but it just isn't the same as actual books. Bookshops over Amazon any day, but I agree endless funds would be nice!!
