Surfing around YouTube, you’ll see a lot of “Booktubers” doing “Book Tags”. They are fun posts with crazy book related questions. I’m definitely not doing this on YouTube, but I did think I would do some of the tags here on the blog. You never know, could be fun! A lot of tags ask you to tag someone and I’m not going to do that. I’m just hoping that you’ll grab the tag and do one yourself. Then come back and share your link, or even tag me so I’ll see it!

This “Would You Rather” book tag was found on Sincerely, A Book Nerd. You can visit there to see the original post. A couple of the questions sound familiar, but I don’t think I’ve done this particular book tag. So, let’s fix this and dive in!

1. Rather read only series or standalone books?

I prefer to read series. Especially if the books are off the charts. I never want to leave the world. Even if a standalone ends with all the strings tied nicely up, if it was a great book, I will still feel let down if I don’t get to stay in the world. Sounds like I like to stay out of reality, doesn’t it?

2. Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?

I find that most of the books I read have female leads, or at least alternate. Off the top of my head I couldn’t even tell you the last time that I read a book that was totally a male lead. I don’t know if that is preference or just how it works out for me.

3. Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or other actual bookstore) or Amazon?

I do love actual bookstores. I can wander around in them and smell the books (don’t judge!). But when it comes down to actual book shopping, I need to have the ability to pull up a review, or I’ve already decided what I want from reading other reviews, and I just want to obtain a particular book. Plus, most of my reading is done on my Kindle. Therefore, I would likely choose only at Amazon. If I want to be completely honest, I can’t tell you the last time I was in a Barnes and Noble. Also, it was likely for a book signing.

4. Rather all books become movies or tv shows?

I would prefer books to become movies. The tv shows that have been based on books add a lot of stuff or veer off the storylines that were originally in the books. They have a lot more time to fill and generally aim to be on for more than one season. Look at True Blood. I think they went WAY off the written path. I still enjoyed the show, but it became completely separate in my mind from the book series.

5. Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?

I want 5 books per week. I want reading to be a super power and I want to have it. To me, reading 5 books a week would be that for me. I am so jealous of other readers that can accomplish that! There are so many books on my TBR and I could get to them all so much faster if I could just read that many books a week!

6. Rather be a professional book reviewer or an author?

I don’t think I have the imagination to be an author, so I’m going to have to say professional book reviewer. I would love to be able to be an author though. To be able to come up with the stories they do, and have all those worlds living in their heads, I’m incredibly jealous.

7. Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?

I would want to do a new book every 6 months. I like to have fresh, new stories to devour. I’m not a rereader at all.

8. Rather be a librarian or own a book store?

Oh I want to own my own book store! I would get to choose what books I carried in stock. I could make arrangements with authors of my choosing for books signings and appearances. I want to be in control of it all!

9. Rather only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?

I would want to only read my favorite genre. That way I could have some of my favorite author, but also an assortment of other authors. I don’t have just one favorite author.

10. Rather only read physical books or eBooks?

For the actual reading, I would prefer eBooks. I collect physical books though, but I like to keep them for my shelves and in pristine condition. I would be so nervous actually reading one that I would crack the spine or get something on the pages. In fact, I just read a physical book and nearly cried when I got a little bit of a grease stain on one of the pages. The horror!
