Thanks to one of my Twitter followers, Reading Upside Down, I found a fun meme that avid readers, like myself, will enjoy: Booking Through Thursday.
So, I decided - even though it's Monday and that makes me 4 days tardy - to jump in with this week's challenge:
Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)
(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!)
Okay, well, let me see just how "quick" of an answer I can give.
Reading something frivolous? Or something serious? Since my favorite genre is true crime, I'll say something serious.
Paperbacks? Or hardcovers? No real preference, although paperbacks are typically what I read.
Fiction? Or Nonfiction? Nonfiction, but love fiction too.
Poetry? Or Prose? Prose.
Biographies? Or Autobiographies? Autobiographies.
History? Or Historical Fiction? History. Only.
Series? Or Stand-alones? Either is great. Series are very fun though.
Classics? Or best-sellers? Best sellers.
Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose? Straight-forward, please.
Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness? Plots, hands down. I've got enough of my own random thoughts.
Long books? Or Short? Either or.
Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated? Does "16 pages of shocking photos" in true crime books count as "illustrated."
Borrowed? Or Owned? Don't care as long as I can read it.
New? Or Used? See above.
What about you? What's your reading preferences?
