Would You Rather… Book Tag

Erika over at Erika in Bookventureland recently posted about the Would You Rather… Book Tag. At the end, she tagged a bunch of people, but she also kindly tagged “YOU”, i.e. any reader who’d like a go.

So I figured, why not? Thank you for the indirect tag!

Would you rather only read trilogies or only read stand-alones?

While I don’t mind trilogies and series, I’d have to go with stand-alones as that will add more variety in the long run.

Would you rather only read male or female authors?

This is a stupid question in my honest opinion. I don’t care whether you’re female, male, trans or gender-neutral as long as you can write a compelling story. I pick books based on plot and whether it appeals to me. Though I have to say, a quick glance at my bookshelves shows most of my books were written by men.

Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?

They don’t have Barnes & Nobel over here, although I would prefer an actual bookstore to an online one. But seeing as I only have one of these options available, I’ll have to say Amazon (plus, I love Amazon Marketplace book bargains.)

Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?

TV shows. Each chapter should be an episode. Movies get too much, complicated plot crammed into them and even though I love the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films, I’m still peeved Peter Jackson didn’t include Tom Bombadil.

Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

How is this even a question? 5 books per week! Maybe that way I’ll eventually get through my TBR pile.

Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?

Author. I love writing. Plus, authors can be reviewers as well.

Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?

Bookseller. I even wrote a post about my dream bookstore I’d like to run one day.

Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favourite?

When it comes to reading I really like variety. I don’t have one definite favourite genre anyway, so I hope I’d be fine. It should definitely keep things interesting.

Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?

Physical books can never run out of batteries. Plus, shelves upon shelves of well-read books look more impressive than one slightly scratched eReader. I like the feel and smell of real books – eReaders could never replicate it.

I tag (totally disregard if you don’t want to do the tag):

The Literary Counsellor
The Hidden Staircase
@  Part Time Monster
@  Melissa Barker-Simpson
@  BluChickenNinja
@  Corina

… and continuing the tradition: You, dear Reader!

  1. Ooh, tough questions, but an enjoyable game and I enjoyed reading your responses. I’m totally with you on the smell and feel of books. My family think I’m quite odd when I open a new book and stick my nose between the pages! Thanks for the tag 😀
