Booking Through Thursday

At one of my favorite blogs, Charlie and Me, I have found the Booking through Thursday meme and I have been meaning to do it. Today was a good day to start. Check it out and join in if you want.

Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
  • I am usually into reading frivolous things but something serious once in awhile is okay too.

  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
  • Since I do most of my reading in bed before I go to sleep, it is easier to hold a paperback...but I love a good hardcover book too.

  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
  • I mostly prefer fiction, but I will read nonfiction if it is something that really interests me

  • Poetry? Or Prose?
  • Even though I love poetry, mostly what I read is prose.

  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
  • Either if I am in the mood for this type of book

  • History? Or Historical Fiction?
  • I am not a big fan of either, but I would chose historical fiction.

  • Series? Or Stand-alones?
  • I love a good series, but I love a good stand alone also

  • Classics? Or best-sellers?
  • The older I get the more I enjoy the classics but I am a real sucker for the best sellers.

  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
  • Straight forward

  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
  • Plots

  • Long books? Or Short?
  • I love long books the best....

  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
  • non+ illustrated...I would much rather use my imagination.

  • Borrowed? Or Owned?
  • Borrowed....owning these just takes up too much space. Although I own a lot of books....I never read one twice.

  • New? Or Used?
  • This does not matter to me. As long as it is in good shape.
