Today marks the beginning of Tag Tuesday.
Every Tuesday I am going to a do a tag whether this be one I have found on WordPress or YouTube or one I have been tagged in. I wanted to do this because I have never done a tag before and thought it looked fun, so here we go.
Would you rather…
1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?
Trilogies; they allow you to look at the characters in more depth and their world. In stand alone books there are often cases in which I find it difficult to love the characters because you spend less time with them, though of course this is different for all books.
2. Read only female or male authors?
Whether an author is male or female makes no difference at all to me; however, upon observation of my bookshelves I have noticed that I appear to read books from more female authors, though this is not intentional.
3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
In the UK I suppose the equivalent to Barnes & Noble is Waterstones. This is a tricky decision. I mean, I love holding and looking at physical books like I can do in actual shops. It is also in these shops where I will be walking around and something will catch my eye and draw me to it. This means that I am more likely to walk out with a variety of books if I go to Waterstones than if I shop online on Amazon. On the other hand, Amazon is cheaper and more convenient as books come to your door. Plus, the reviews of books on Amazon tend to be better. Overall, I would have to choose Waterstones because they also give you the choice of shopping online so it is the best of both.
4. All books become movies or t.v. shows?
TV shows definitely. TV shows can be made up of multiple seasons containing multiple episodes which means that you can delve into the details of the book and present them on screen in much more depth. After all, when you hear a book is becoming a TV show, we all tend to hope that the creators stick close to the book. Like in the case of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, the movie was rather disappointing and now the TV show is being greatly anticipated.
5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Five books per week. I mean, that sounds like how my summer holidays are. The more books I read the better!
6. Be a professional reviewer or author?
This is tough. I feel like I would be better as a reviewer. However, I would love to be an author if only I was more creative. For this reason, I have to choose author.
7. Only read your top 20 favourite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
New ones! I love reading books, especially new ones. Besides, just because I cannot read ones I have read before, doesn’t mean that I cannot read fanfiction, right?
8. Be a librarian or book seller?
A book seller. Ever since I left secondary school I have said that if I had to work in retail it would have to be a bookstore. I personally love owning the books I read rather than having to return them. Also, I know how happy I am whenever I am purchasing new books so it would be nice to be able to give people that same happiness.
9. Only read your favourite genre, or every genre except your favourite?
Only read my favourite genre because there are so many books in the world that I don’t think that I would ever run out. Furthermore, in the case of many books the genres overlap so I can still experience a bit of everything.
10. Only read physical books or eBooks?
Physical books; I love holding them and seeing them and touching them and turning their pages and smelling them. Books are beautiful.
I hope you all liked reading my responses and you learnt a little more about me.
Now, I tag you. It is your turn to do this and let me know when you have. It will be interesting to see your choices and how similar or different they are to mine.
