Booking Through Thursday

Today's Booking Through Thursday looked fun so I'll jump in!

This week's Booking Through Thursday asks the following question:

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

1. Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?

Something serious.

2. Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?


3. Fiction? Or Nonfiction?

(That's a nasty unfair question!) However, I think I will say non-fiction.

4. Poetry? Or Prose?

Prose. (See my post at 5 Minutes for Books today re: my love of all things Anne of Green Gables and poetry.) Lady of Shallot anyone? But only for a moment!

5. Biographies? Or Autobiographies?


6. History? Or Historical Fiction?

Just the facts, please.

7. Series? Or Stand-alones?


8. Classics? Or best-sellers?

Classics. More truthworthy.

9. Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?

FRUITY! (I can't help it.)

10. Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?

Plot. Please.

11. Long books? Or Short?

If I HAVE to choose - long!

12. Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?

Non. Definitely non.

13. Borrowed? Or Owned?


14. New? Or Used?

I didn't do this one because my answer for most of them would be "It depends" or "It doesn't matter."

Oops, I clicked "Publish" before I finished. I was going to say the main exception would be #10. Plots, definitely.

Yes, hardcovers! You did a really good job with the quick answers. I had a harder time, but thought it was fun anyway.

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...

I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices!

I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.

I'm with Barbara: I looked over this and kept thinking, "It depends on my mood," "it depends on the book," "it depends..."

I would say most of the questions were nasty or unfair, but you did well :)
