BTT for 7/23

Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious? hmm, i'd say both. No preference really.
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers? to buy i'd pick paperbacks, from the library hardbacks seem to last longer
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction? based on my numbers this year i prefer fiction.
  • Poetry? Or Prose? Prose. The only poetry i've read in the last year was some of Poe's in a collection of short stories.
  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies? I don't think i've read either in a while. I guess memoirs are autobiographies so i'll pick that.
  • History? Or Historical Fiction? ack! again, i'd say no preference. Or a slight preference to the fiction.
  • Series? Or Stand-alones? I read a lot of each but i'd say stand alones.
  • Classics? Or best-sellers? classics are the best sellers of a few years ago! classics though.
  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose? Mostly the basic stuff.
  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness? Plot. S-o-C confuses me.
  • Long books? Or Short? both or neither, it doesn't matter length too much.
  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated? I love books with pictures.
  • Borrowed? Or Owned? I borrow mostly.
  • New? Or Used? Used definitely! i love old book smell. and how new books smell i guess.
that's all i got.

  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...
