"This or That?" Tag
I've been tagged by TT @ Intro to Blurb to complete the "This or That?" Tag! Thanks very much for the nomination, TT! You should all go check out his blog, it's pretty great!
Reading on the bed, or on the couch?
I do like to read on the couch, but I reading in bed all warm and wrapped up in the blankets is much nicer.
Male, or female main character?
It doesn't really matter to me as long as they're well-written.
Sweet, or salty snacks while reading?
Salty - I'd much prefer to have some chips, pretzels, or popcorn while reading rather than something sweet. Although I wouldn't say no to a sweet snack...
Trilogies, or quartets?
Usually, I seem to go for trilogies, but honestly if there's more of the story that needs to be told I'm all for more.
First-person, or third-person POVs?
My favorite is third-person, although that can sometimes make you feel more distant from the characters. Otherwise, though, I wouldn't say no to first-person or second-person at all - as long as all types of perspectives are done well.
Reading at night, or in the morning?
Bookstores, or libraries?
Well, I'm a librarian so I'm definitely going to say libraries. But, I do love to buy personal copies of books - I even have my favorite local bookstore. I must say, I shouldn't be trusted in a bookstore with a credit card.
Books that make you laugh, or cry?
Definitely laugh - I'm not going to specifically go into a book looking to cry. But like TT said, if a story can connect on such a level with me - good job author. [I balled like a baby at Inside Out - Oh, Bing Bong!!!)
Black, or white book covers?
Only black or white? I'd rather have a pop of color.
Character, or plot-driven stories?
I'd like to have the best of both worlds - awesome characters with a brilliantly orchestrated plot.
