The lovely and talented Lauren Dane tagged me for this
Contemporary, Historical or Paranormal?
I used to love historical and read every one I could get my hands on (I especially liked any that had a mystical theme). That was before paranormals were big. Once paranormals hit the scene, that pretty much became my sub genre of choice and still is today. I still love historical, though. I’m just a little more selective in what I read. Contemporaries have honestly never been my thing.
Hardback, Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?
Oh, I don’t care. If I want to read the book I’ll buy it any size.
Heyer or Austin?
Amazon or Brick & Mortar?
I love brick and mortar bookstores, but I live way out in the country so I use Amazon a lot. I love Amazon, actually. I should have stock.
First romance novel you ever remember reading?
Once an Angel by Teresa Medieros. I credit that book with causing me to decide to write romance, in fact.
Alphabetize by author, alphabetize by title or random?
Hahahahaha. Alphabetize. That’s a good one.
Keep, throw away or sell?
Keep. I keep all my books, whether I liked them or not.
Read with dustjacket or remove it?
I always remove them.
Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake?
Hmmmm….these days I prefer Sookie, but I like Anita too.
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?
I usually just stop wherever.
“It was a dark and stormy night” or “Once upon a time”?
It was a dark and stormy night.
Crusie or SEP?
I’ve never read SEP (although I know I need to), so Crusie.
Buy or borrow?
Always buy. As a writer I guess I feel I should be supporting the author (although borrowing supports the author after a fashion too)
Buying choice: Book Reviews, recommendations or browse?
Browse mostly. Recommendations too. I never read reviews.
Tidy ending or cliff-hanger?
Oh, it depends on the type of book and genre, I suppose.
Morning reading, afternoon reading, or evening reading?
I read every night before I go to sleep. Yay for the Itty Bitty Book Light.
Series or stand alone?
Either. I love a good series and I love stand alones too. By the way, someone tell Robin McKinley to write a sequel to Sunshine. *pout*
Favorite book of which no one else has heard?
Wow, I can’t imagine I’ve read one that no one else has heard of. I live in a plugged-in book land.
