Significant books can change lives
And to make up for not tagging, here’s a meme I stole from my favorite book blog, nylusmilk:
Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal? Paranormal, however, What is normal, anyway?
Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback? Trade Paperback.
Heyer or Austen? Austen, definitely.
Amazon or Brick and Mortar? Brick and Mortar to browse, usually to buy, but sometimes Amazon when I’m buying several at once.
Barnes & Noble or Borders? Either one is fine.
Woodiwiss or Lindsay? Have not read either one.
First romance novel you ever remember reading? Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Alphabetize by author Alphabetize by title or random? No! Alphabetize by topic!
Keep, Throw Away or Sell? Keep, until no more shelf room & piling up on floor. Then, whine, complain, and grouse until I’ve chosen those to go to the used bookstore (where I get more, anyway).
Read with dust jacket or remove it? With. Use as bookmark.
Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake? I don’t know who they are, but I think they’re vampires?
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks? At chapter breaks when I’m aware of the clock, but have been known to fall asleep with open book on lap and cup of tea in hand!
“It was a dark and stormy night” or “Once upon a time”? Once upon a time!
Crusie or SEP? I do not know who they are.
Buy or Borrow? Borrow from library, can therefore consume voraciously.
Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse? Browse, and listening to author’s interviews.
Tidy ending or Cliffhanger? Tidy, please!
Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading? Yes, yes, and yes.
Series or standalone? Standalone in most cases.
