Preferences-- A Totally Stolen Post

So, I saw this around the blogging world and decided to steal it.

Total and utter theft, I admit it.

Booking Through Thursday asks the following questions--

Which do you prefer?

Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
Um... yes. Right now I'm reading something frivolous

Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
It depends. Paperbacks are often a little easier to deal with.

Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
Fiction, though I read nonfiction now and again.

Poetry? Or Prose?
Usually prose. It's been a while since I read a book of poetry.

Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
Honestly, I rarely read either. Unless they're funny, maybe.... Hmm... Yeah, I just have no answer for this one.

History? Or Historical Fiction?

Series? Or Stand-alones?

Classics? Or best-sellers?
Ummm. Yes.

Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
Usually straight-forward. With lots of dialogue.

Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
Usually plots

Long books? Or Short?
Depends on how much time I have. :D

Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
Usually non.

Borrowed? Or Owned?
Yes. I *heart* my library.

New? Or Used?
Either way so long as it's in good shape. I buy a lot of used books. I love used book stores.

How about you?


  1. Someone told me Memes are public property online and you can't steal them. Have fun!

  2. LOL.

    I'd also been thinking about stealing this one. I don't want to join on a weekly basis, but I liked seeing everyone else's answers on this one, and thought about joining in on the fun.

    Your answers are very similar to what mine would be, except that I do have a weakness for new books :-).

  3. Good to know I can't get in trouble for "stealing" a meme! :D

    I have a weakness for new books too.... just not a budget to support it!! :D:D

  4. New books, old books, all books are fascinating. I have a passion for really old ones, though; the ones you can find in the museums or in your granny's drawer.

  5. Absolutely! I inherited a lot of old books when my grandma died. I love them!
