So usually I post tags on Fridays… but I didn’t want to wait that long, so I’m posting today instead. Today’s tag is about BOOKS! Thanks to Julia, at Lit Aflame, for the tag!
Thank the person who nominated you.
Tag your post with #awesomebloggeraward.
Answer the questions you were asked.
Nominate at least 5 bloggers and inform them of their nominations.
Give them 10 new questions to answer.
1. Buy or borrow?
It depends. Usually I prefer to buy books, but if a friend or family member has the book I’d like to read I’ll borrow it. If I like it enough, I’ll likely buy it for myself later. Or just put it on my wishlist to sit for months/years. XD
2. Fiction or non-fiction?
Fiction. There are a handful of non-fiction books I’ve enjoyed/learned from, but generally choose fiction.
3. Can you listen to music and read at the same time?
Nope. At least not if the music has lyrics. TOO MANY WORDS IN THE BRAINNNN. (But for some reason I can tune out lyrics when I’m writing? Not sure how that works.)
4. When do you do the most reading?
In bed in the evening, or–lately–in the first half of the workday that I don’t have any assignments to work on. (I have a new volunteer position at my dad’s workplace, so I go for 8 hours but there’s only 4 hours worth of work for me to do.)
5. How do you find new books?
Most often through Goodreads and what my friends are reading.
6. What is your favorite book?
7. What is the last book someone recommended to you?
Does Mirage count? Since I know the author and she was super excited about its release? No? Then I guess Healer’s Bane* by Hope Ann also doesn’t count. Um… Oh! Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher.
8. Watch the movie as well, or just read the book?
It depends. If I watch the movie first, I try to always read the book as well. (And if a trailer for a book-based movie catches my eye, I’ll try to read the book first.) If I’ve read the book, whether or not I watch the movie depends on how much I think they’re going to butcher it. Whether that influences my decision toward watching it or not watching it… depends. Sometimes I want to see how laughable it is.
9. Read it all in one sitting, or over a few days?
Most of the time I prefer to read a book over a few days (and it usually only takes a few days), but there are some that I’d rather read in one sitting, whether it’s because they’re awesome, they’re short, or I’m on a deadline.
10. E-book or paperback?
PAPERBACK. But I’ve gotten used to also reading e-books if I need to, whether I’m reading a review copy or just a book I don’t have the money to get in paperback. My problem is I tend to forget about e-books if I’m not highly invested in them for one reason or another.
