Booking Through Thursday: Preferences

July 23, 2009

From Booking Through Thursday

Which do you prefer? (My answers are in green)

Reading something frivolous? Or something serious? Depends on my mood…usually serious
Paperbacks? Or hardcovers? Paperbacks…easier to hold, bend, etc.
Fiction? Or nonfiction? Definitely fiction
Poetry? Or prose? Prose, except in the case of a very few exceptions
Biographies? Or autobiographies? Autobiographies
History? Or historical fiction? Historical fiction
Series? Or stand-alones? Either, as long as it’s good!
Classics? Or best-sellers? Whatever appeals to me at the time…usually contemporary fiction
Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose? I like them both if they’re done well and hate them if they’re not
Plots? Or stream-of-consciousness? Plots or thoughts, but not stream-of-consciousness!
Long books? Or short? Medium to long
Illustrated? Or non-illustrated? Non, or minimally
Borrowed? Or owned? Borrowed, then owned if I like it!
New? Or used? Used if I can find it, new if I can’t (working in a bookstore helps!)

    Can you read whatever you want from the store? That was my favorite perk when I worked in a bookstore!

    Great answers! The name of my blog is "Well-Mannered Frivolity" – can you guess what my answer to number 1 was? It was hard to choose between some of the answers this week though…

    I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices!

    I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.
