Booking Through Thursday: Preferences

Thursday, July 23, 2009


Here is this week's Booking Through Thursday

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

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
    Usually something semi-serious. But every now and then I have to lighten it up with something frivolous.

  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
    Paperbacks usually, but I like hardcovers too.

  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
    Fiction. Even the non-fiction ones that interest me usually bore me halfway through.

  • Series? Or Stand-alones?
    Both, but if I had to pick one, stand alones.

  • Classics? Or best-sellers?
    Best sellers

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

  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
    Plots

  • Long books? Or Short?
    In general, short ones. 300 pgs is what I think the average book should be. Some big ones are good though.

  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
    Non-illustrated unless it's a kids' book

  • Borrowed? Or Owned?
    I read way too many books to own them all. So borrowed is okay.

  • New? Or Used?
    New. I just can't afford it, lol!

You and I have pretty much the same taste! What non-fiction books have you liked?
