Booking Through Thursday: Preferences

Booking Through Thursday asks us to answer... quickly.. the following questions:

Which do you prefer?
Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
I love them both! I can't pick on this one!

Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?

Fiction? Or Nonfiction?

Poetry? Or Prose?

Biographies? Or Autobiographies?

History? Or Historical Fiction?
Historical fiction

Series? Or Stand-alones?
Another one I can't pick because I love them both equally.

Classics? Or best-sellers?
Classics, if I HAD to pick, through I love best-sellers too.

Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
What's Markus Zusak's style considered? Lurid or basic? Whatever he does, that's what I love. I don't like major wordy stuff, but I love simple basic prose done in an amazing creative way.

Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?

Long books? Or Short?

Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?

Borrowed? Or Owned?

New? Or Used?
new, if I had to pick one, but used is great too.

Fun little exercise this week!


  1. Great answers! The name of my blog is "Well-Mannered Frivolity" - can you guess what my answer to number 1 was? It was hard to choose between some of the answers this week though...

  2. I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices!

    I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.

  3. Bluestocking, mine change too. Or, it could be that I just like everything.

    Susan... visited your blog. Very cute.

    Matt... love your quote!
