1. Rather read only a series or stand-alone books?
Before I started reading those Anita Blake novels, I hadn’t started a series in a long time, which probably says something about my reading habits. I think I would rather read stand-alone books simply for the variety. I tend to focus on stories rather than characters or worlds, though I do appreciate them.
2. Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?
3. Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or other actual bookstore) or Amazon?
Brick and mortar, full stop. Instant gratification, and all that. And serendipity.
4. Rather all books become movies or tv shows?
TV, I guess. I don’t know that I want all books to become film in the first place, though. Speaking for “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” I do think the TV series accomplishes a lot more than the movie (though I’d kill for that movie’s overall aesthetic).
5. Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?
Of course, I’d rather read five books per week, but I wonder if I would be able to remember anything I read. As it stands, I actually do tend to read only five pages a day.
6. Rather be a professional book reviewer or an author?
An author. I’ve been writing for years and like it a lot. As you can tell from the nature of my review posts, I don’t actually think too hard about writing reviews. At least, not reviews that anyone would find useful.
7. Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?
Same 20 books over and over. Really good books, you can find something new in them every time. Or you can look at them through a different lens every time.
8. Rather be a librarian or own a book store?
Well, I only got my masters for one of those things, so I’m gonna have to say librarian. But that’s because I like information and the organization of it. Owning a book store could be really fun, though.
9. Rather only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?
Favorite genre. Again, I love variety.
10. Rather only read physical books or eBooks?
Physical books. Although I did just finish reading my second ebook ever. It was Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and I absolutely loved reading it. I might even do a post on it later.
