I found this reading tag on Karen’s blog Rockwitch. This is my first tag! I decided to do this one as I love reading so it really appealed to me. 🙂
The Reading Tag
Physical book or e-book?
Physical book, defiantly, although I’ve never tried reading an e-book so maybe I’m biased? I like being able to hold a real book while I’m reading it, I’ve debated getting a Kindle, but I like book shelves. I like owning books. Also, like the old book well.
Audio or book in hand?
I can’t listen to audio books, often I tune out, or find the narrator irritating for whatever reason.
Paperback or hardcover?
Either, but probably hardcover I like to keep book spines neat and tidy.
Adult or Young Adult?
A bit of both, I have my fair share of both adult and young adult books.
Series or standalone?
Series mostly – Some standalones just seem unfinsihed or leave me wanting more bet there never is. In some cases standalones can also end on a cliff hanger: Stephen King’s Cell comes to mind here, don’t get me wrong I enjoy cliff hangers but enjoy them a lot more if it’s resolved eventually.
The only thing I hate about series’ is having to wait so long for the next one!
I’m one of those people that can read a book in less than a day and will often stay up really late to get to the end of a book. It’s a bit of an obsession. Haha.
Dog ears or bookmarks?
I HATE dog ears. Bookmarks.
Breaking the spine or barely opening the book?
Usually barely opening the book.
Borrow or buy?
I tend to buy. One of my dreams is to have a room in my house filled with books – a library I guess, like you see in old houses in movies or on tv. Having said that, I lived in my local library and went to the school library a lot when I was younger and couldn’t afford to buy books, so I guess both? 🙂
Bookstore or online?
I love physical books stores. There are two bookstores in my local town, one is in a real pretty old building, with a sofa for reading and the other has chairs for you to sit and read the books. Try before you buy I guess?
I love strolling around book shops or sitting and having a read, most book shops near me have a coffee shop in them too.
Online is defiantly cheaper and I do shop online for books if I’m stretched for cash or if my local book shop doesn’t have the book I’m looking for but often I’ll order it online for collection at my local shop anyway.
Fiction or non-fiction?
I like non-fiction, but I’d say most of what I read is fiction.
Fantasy world or real life issues?
As long as it’s a good story, it doesn’t matter much, but I am a sucker for a good fantasy book. Normally ones that are real world fantasy, e.g. Vampires in a small town as opposed to fantasy where the entire world is fictional.
Monster read or short & sweet?
Either. It depends on my mood.
Starry-eyed romance or full of action?
Usually full of action, but the books I normally read have their fair share of romance in them too.
Curl up in a Snuggie or bathe in the sun?
I don’t even own a Snuggie, but I definitely prefer staying in. Curled up on the sofa with a good book. 🙂
Read the review or decide for yourself?
I can’t remember the last time I read a book review. I’ve read a book through word-of-mouth though, e.g. my mum suggested I’d like The House of Night book series and I started reading those based on that – I do like them by the way – but I usually decide for myself.
Zombies or unicorns?
Zombies are cool (they’re still cool right?).
