Stolen from i_love_freddie:

Just to show I am making an effort to get back to you all. Apparently this has been around for a time, but as I have been missing so it's new to me!  So I have snagged.


Hardback or paperback:
I do like a hardback book ... but there again, a soak in a bath with a paperback is great.

Borrow or buy:
Buy. Will borrow some things, but if I like them I "need" to buy.

Fantasy or sci-fi:
Bits of either.

Love-triangle or love at first sight:
Either - depends on the author.

Wall shelves or bookcases:
I have both ... you can't have enough, can you?

Bad plot with good characters or good plot with bad characters:
Hard, I suppose I like the characters to be the strong part if I have to pick either/or. People who I can love or hate in a poor story is better, as like can sometimes be humdrum!

Harry Potter or Percy Jackson:
Neither!

Booklr or Bookstagram:
Huh!

Contemporaries or Fantasy:
Fantasy.

English books or books in your native language:
My native language is English.

Buy in a bookshop or buy online:
Depends on the book. Online is often cheaper, but it's good to see the actual book itself, sousually at a book shop.

Amazon or book depository:
Amazon.

Buy because of the cover or because of the description:
Description.

Alphabetical shelves or colour coordinated:
Neither. Mine are arranged by genre, then in height within those catagories.

Different sized books or matching sizes:
Doesn't matter ... depends on the subject.

Wait to marathon a series or read as they’re released:
Read as you go ... I may even end up giving up. Although then you have to sit and wait for answers (come on Jim Butcher)

Movie or tv adaptations:
Both.

Reading indoors or outdoors:
I will read anywhere.

Coffee or tea:
Silly question, I'm English! Tea.

Bookmarks or random objects to mark your page:
My Bibles are all full of bookmarks, but other books is either a bookmark or a slip of card.

Dog-earing or bookmarks:
Used to dog-ear, but tend to now use bookmarks.

Be your favourite character or be their best friend:
Depends on the story.

Physical or e-book:
Bibles and other factual books are physical. But I have got into a kindle for many of my fiction books, although still have actual books to read as well.

Read in bed or on a chair:
Mostly in bed - I was brought up that reading during the day is lazy!!

Audiobook or ebook:
Love listening to James. He used to travel to and from home while Mum & Dad were alive. Now he comes to the gym with me! As I said, I do love my Kindle. Have a couple of sites that do free, or cheap eBooks, so that is even better.

Series or stand-alones:
Either

Reading in the winter or reading in the summer:
Funny question - any day, every day!
