- New or Used?
I’m perfectly fine with either on this one. I love both new and used books.
- Paperback or E-Book?
I have started to prefer reading paperback and hardback books over e-books. Reading on my Kindle has really become painful for my eyes the last few months and I’ve been slowly stepping away from them.
- Read all the words or skim?
I read all the words if it is a book that I’m enjoying. If it is a book I’m struggling with, I will sometimes skim to see what happens.
- Happily Ever After or Tragic?
I love happily ever afters and that is what I prefer, especially when reading a romance. Sometimes though, a tragic ending makes sense for the story and I’m okay with that as well.
- Audiobooks or E-Books?
As painful as reading e-books has become for my eyes, I’ll still choose an e-book over an audiobook. I can’t stand audiobooks. I’ve tried to listen to them on several occasions and I just can’t do it. I lose focus and start thinking about other things and then I end up missing things that are happening in the story.
- Multiple books or one at a time?
I can only read one book at a time. I’ve seen people reading six, seven, and even eight books at a time and I’m just like… how?! What is this sorcery? If I try to read more than one book at a time, I get the plots and the characters mixed up and it’s just not pretty.
- Read to others or be read to?
I would prefer to read to others. It’s the same thing as the audiobooks. When someone is reading to me, I can’t focus and my mind ends up going to other things.
- Silence or Background noise?
Silence. Absolute silence. I can’t concentrate and am easily distracted when there is noise in the background when I’m trying to read.
- Dog-ear or Bookmark?
Bookmark all the way. I don’t like to dog-ear pages.
- Movie covers or Originals?
- Read on couch or in bed?
On the couch. I can’t get comfortable when reading in bed.
- Read outside or inside?
Inside. I am more comfortable inside. I don’t like the brightness when reading outside and there’s also background noise.
- Snacks while reading or none?
None. I don’t want to get my kindle screen or physical book dirty.
- Book that makes you laugh or cry?
I lean toward books that make me laugh. Although sometimes you just need to have a good ugly cry, so those books are fine, too.
- First person POV or third person POV?
First person. I used to read almost exclusively third person but then I started reading romance and a lot of those are written in first person POV, so I became used to that and prefer first person POV now. I still read books in third person, but it takes me a little bit to adjust to the change.
What do you all prefer with these questions? I’d love to hear your answers!
