2009: Booking Thru Thursday – Preferences

It’s been a while since I participated in BTT! Well, here goes… This week’s topic is:

Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
  • Poetry? Or Prose?
  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
  • History? Or Historical Fiction?
  • Series? Or Stand-alones?
  • Classics? Or best-sellers?
  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
  • Long books? Or Short?
  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
  • Borrowed? Or Owned?
  • New? Or Used?

(Yes, I know, some of these we’ve touched on before, and some of these we might address in-depth in the future, but for today–just quick answers!)

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious? frivolous
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers? paperbacks
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction? fiction

    Reading about someone’s life is a case by case basis for me. I want substance like in Anthony Rapp’s Without You or Meat Loaf’s to Hell and Back.

    I like giving used books homes, which happens frequently enough I need another bookshelf. Get rid of books? That’s crazy talk!
