Paperback Writer tagged everybody who posted a comment on her blog, and I asked a question, so here is my very first meme.
Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal? Paranormal.
Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback? It depends. There are a few authors I collect in Hardback, if they come out in Trade I'll get those, but I'm starting to acquire a large collection of Mass Market (I tend to read the spines out of my mass market, that's why I prefer the others).
Heyer or Austen? Austen, but of course.
Amazon or Brick and Mortar? Brick and Mortar, for the most part (I did break down and join a book club but that has turned out to be mostly for research materials).
Barnes & Noble or Borders? Narnes & Boble all the way. They have coffee, they have chocolate, they have nice people who regularly order things for me when they are not on the shelf, and I have even convinced the nice people at my local store to start carrying Kerry Greenwood's mysteries. Yeah team.
Woodiwiss or Lindsay? I plead the fifth, on the grounds I might incriminate myself.
First romance novel you ever remember reading? It was actually a bodice ripper my sister was reading, I don't remember the title or the author, but I could probably tell you the whole story.
Alphabetize by author Alphabetize by title or random? Alphabetize by author, except... the mysteries are separate from the scifi/fantasy, the hardbacks are in different cases from the paperbacks, and the nonfiction is all schlumped into the bookcase wherever there was room (My organizational impulse ran out of steam).
Keep, Throw Away or Sell? Some I keep and lend out to friends, family, and coworkers, some I donate to the library, and those I have read to death I throw away.
Read with dustjacket or remove it? Dustjacket on, that way I don't lose it in the loose paper black hole known as my office.
Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake? Actually I like both.
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks? Stop reading when the book falls shut with my nose caught inside (or the eyes start focusing independantly).
It was a dark and stormy night or Once upon a time? Dark and stormy night. Definitely.
Crusie or SEP? Again I must plead the fifth.
Buy or Borrow? Usually buy, I don't like waiting for it to hit the library shelves (most of the time, anyway).
Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse? All of the above.
Tidy ending or Cliffhanger? I can go either way.
Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading? More of a read with breakfast, read with lunch, read after work, read before bed...
Series or standalone? Mostly series, but if the author is good- I'll read standalones.
Favorite book of which nobody else has heard? The Far Family and The Tall Woman by Wilma Dykeman (for when I get homesick for the mountains :o) ).
So, how'd I do?
