Booking Through Thursday - Bookish Preferences

Q: Which do you prefer?

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
  • My favourite books have a bit of both but tend towards serious.
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
  • Paperbacks - especially small size classic penguins that bend nicely in your fingertips.
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
  • Definitely fiction.
  • Poetry? Or Prose?
  • Prose.
  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
  • Biographies.
  • History? Or Historical Fiction?
  • Historical fiction (terrible considering my degree is in History!).
  • Series? Or Stand-alones?
  • Stand-alones.
  • Classics? Or best-sellers?
  • Modern classics.
  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
  • As fruity as a margarita!
  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
  • Plots.
  • Long books? Or Short?
  • Short.
  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
  • Non-illustrated unless it's for children and has beautiful plates.
  • Borrowed? Or Owned?
  • Owned - without a doubt!!!
  • New? Or Used?
  • Used (or as I like to think of it, loved).
