Booking Through Thursday-7/23/09

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

  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious? Seriously frivolous, probably? I don't like authors that take themselves too seriously and the book is all sad sad sad, but I really dislike books that have absolutely no seriousness to them. I like a good balance. Serious subject, real humans, with humor in the mix.
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
  • Poetry? Or Prose?
  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
  • History? Or Historical Fiction? Oh, God, NEITHER.
  • Series? Or Stand-alones? I...tend to lean towards series, but I can't find a good one now, so I'm reading more and more stand-alones. Kind of getting tired of it.
  • Classics? Or best-sellers? Again, neither. I hate hate HATE classics. Best-Sellers tend to kind of suck. I like YA best sellers.
  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness? I like plots in stream-of-consciousness form :)
  • Long books? Or Short? Typically "long" but not exceedingly. Not that big a fan of short stories.
  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated? Heh, always up for a few pictures :) Both are wonderful, though.
  • Borrowed? Or Owned? Ehhhh, I used to be a huuuuge borrower, this has now changed.
  • New? Or Used? Both.
