"Would You Rather" Book Tag Tour - My Turn?
So I'm sharing this post and answering Brian's 'tag' that he sent me. Killing two birds with one stone as it were. Answers are below: :)
1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?
I'll read just about anything? If it's a series or a single book. Short story or epic like "Battlefield Earth". If it interests me - I'll read it!
2. Read only female or male authors?
Really? This is a question? I would never pigeon hole myself or be sexist to only choose a male/female author. Stephen King and Anne MccAffery are two of my favorite authors (among a lot of others...)
3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
I've shopped at both. Since I moved here in Kansas? I'll be shopping at Amazon. B&N just isn't viable with the nearest one being over an hour away.
4. All books become movies or t.v. shows?
No. I think there have been some great adaptations for certain books that translated well. If you haven't watched Practical Magic (or read the book..). This is a good example. A horrid one was Battlefield Earth. I don't know how they expected to get a 1050 pages onto a 2 hour movie.
5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Um, That'd translate to like a book a month at 5 pages a day. I think I'll go for this. I'd love to be able to read five books a week. Then that's all I'd be doing. Even though I am an avid reader and can knock out a book fairly quickly. I'd get burnt out.
6. Be a professional reviewer or author?
Author of course! If I had the necessary writing chops, talent, imagination etc to be able to write? Then heck yea I'd love to be an Author!
7. Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
I rarely re-read a book once it's done. It's told the story so why go back to it? I'll go with reading new ones.
8. Be a librarian or book seller?
Librarian - Its a dying breed in today's digital world. But I enjoy helping people so to help people find a book would be more my speed.
9. Only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?
This is silly. I don't have a "favorite genre". I tend to read everything if I enjoy the story. Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Crime dramas, Classics, Horror, Biographies, US History. It doesn't really matter as long as it holds my interest.
I'd go with the second option I suppose?
10. Only read physical books or eBooks?
I read both. eBooks are more convenient. It will never replace the tactile feel of a good book in your hands though!
Thanks for sharing +Brian D. Hawkins
