Book Meme!

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?
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.

 
I will tag Melany Logen and Patrice Michelle

  1. okay Anya – you’re not feeding my blog addiction here…..
    yeah, yeah – that writing thang takes first priority. Big Sigh.

    So from your list above, i take it your bookshelves groan from a massive number of books like mine, eh? One of the reasons I like Ebooks – my affliction isn’t so publically obvious. Grin!


  2. I know! I’ve been busy. It’s about to get worse, too. *grumble*

    I love ebooks too, for this very reason. :)
