Hello, Gentle Reader, I’ve been tagged.
What can I say?
Reading on the Bed or the Couch?
Couch during daylight, bed after dark.
Male Main Character or Female Main Character?
Sweet Snacks or Salty Snacks while reading?
Sweet. Sugar is my drug of choice and it tends to go better with tea. So yeah, lots of sweets, too many really. Although, chocolate is reserved for after dark, and I tend not to eat it with tea.
Trilogies or Quartets?
Quartets, I blame Tamora Pierce.
Reading First Person or Third Person POV?
Third, always and forever. I will read First, but it’s a lot more work for me to get into, and I need to be convinced by the author that “I personal” is genuine. I mean really convinced.
Reading at Night, or in the Morning?
Libraries or Bookstores?
Both but mostly libraries for non-fiction and bookstores for fiction. However, I don’t actually like to read read in public spaces at all.
If you see me reading in public it’s usually at the airport or on a plane. Otherwise reading is something scared and private and best done in the safety of my own home, office, or hotel room.
Books that make you laugh or cry?
Laugh. Always. Laugh.
Black book covers or white covers?
White. I love the simplicity and starkness of a white book cover. This one is my current favorite:
Character driven or Plot driven?
Character driven, duh.
