This week BTT asks, “Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date.)”
Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
Both, I usually have multiple books marked and will swap between them depending on mood.
Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
Paperbacks are lighter (especially when moving) and fit on shelves better.
Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
Mainly fiction, but some nonfiction.
Poetry? Or Prose?
Mainly prose, but some poetry.
Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
I’ve only read autobiographies.
History? Or Historical Fiction?
Usually historical fiction. History is case by case.
Series? Or Stand-alones?
Classics? Or best-sellers?
Classics, I’m not one to browse the best-seller racks.
Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
Well-written prose, lurid or straight-forward.
Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
Long books? Or Short?
It’s not the length that matters.
Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
Usually non-illustrated, unless it comes illustrated.
Borrowed? Or Owned?
I own most of the books I read, but also borrow from friends.
New? Or Used?
Used, with a few occasions of “having” to buy new (ie. from the author).
What about you, what are your preferences?
