As you know, I do love a good book tag – so a huge thank you to Laura at Roachie’s Reviews for tagging me in this one!
The rules are simple – answer the questions given to you by your nominator, then make up your own questions and tag others!
So, without further ado, let’s get started!
Would you rather be stuck on a long plane/train journey without a book or with a book you know you hate?
This is a relatively easy one for me. I hate being bored so I’d always rather have a book than be without something to read. So even if the book in question was Wuthering Heights (sorry Heathcliff/Cathy fans!), I’d rather face a long journey with some reading matter than without!
Would you rather have books for free but have them in your least preferred format, or have to pay a high price for all your books in your most preferred format?
I am a huge believer in paying authors for their work. Whilst blogging means I’m lucky enough to get the occasional freebie, I have no problem with the price of books – in fact, I think they’re one of the best value forms of entertainment that you can get! And libraries do a fantastic job of letting those of us with limited budgets access lots of lovely books for free!
So I’d take paying a higher price for all my books (as long as that means I’m supporting writers and booksellers) and getting to read a nice physical book (paperback preferably) than getting all freebies but being forced to always read digitally.
Would you rather be a famous author and never read again, or never write again and be able to read anything you like?
I’d take being a reader over being a writer any day. I do love to write but I’d be lost without the ability to read.
Would you rather go to Hogwarts or be given enough money to be comfortable for the rest of your life?
TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN!! Ha!
Seriously though, I think I’d take the ability to give me and my family a comfortable life over a trip to Hogwarts. Hogwarts might be magical but it’s still secondary school – and secondary school sucked the first time I had to do it.
Also, the question doesn’t specify if I get to be a witch if I go to Hogwarts – how terrible would it be if you could visit the castle but not take part in any of the lessons?!?!
Would you rather have to read the last chapter of every new book first, or never read the last chapter?
I skip to the end and read the last chapter of most of my books anyway. Yes, I know, I’m a monster. But, for me, reading is about the journey and not the destination.
It’s the end of the world. Would you rather get stuck in a bookshop and have to risk your life to find food, or get stuck in a supermarket/grocery store without anything to read?
Bookshop. I’ll probably die but at least I’ll die happy (and well-read)!
Would you rather have to listen to amazing audiobooks with an irritating narrator or listen to rubbish books with a wonderful narrator?
Ooooh, tricky one! I think I’d take the amazing narrator with the rubbish book.
Great audiobook narrators can make even mediocre books sound great, whereas I think an irritating narrator would make me stop listening to even the most compelling book. Audio is, after all, about the listening experience!
Would you rather read a book where the page was missing with a dramatic twist or a book where the author doesn’t know the difference between there, their, and they’re?
Definitely the missing page. The ‘there, their, they’re’ thing makes me twitch when someone gets it wrong.
Would you rather read a book that transports you to the past or the future?
I love me a historical novel – it’s probably my favourite genre – so definitely the past!
And now for my QUESTIONS (mwahahahaha!)! I’m tagging Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, Nicola at Short Books and Scribes, and Asha at A Cat, A Book, and a Cup of Tea…and YOU! Yes, I would love anyone who thinks this is fun to have a go – do tag me in your posts as I would love to read your answers.
And I would like to know…
- Would you rather spend a month in the setting/world of your favourite novel or a lifetime being friends with your favourite character?
- Would you rather read physical books but only with TV/movie tie-in covers or e-books with beautifully designed covers?
- Would you rather go to the ball at Netherfield Park (Pride & Prejudice) or go drinking at The Prancing Pony (The Lord of the Rings)?
- Would you rather hang out with your favourite hero or your favourite villain?
- Would you rather have a friend who never returns your books or one who returns them promptly but turns down the corners of the pages and breaks the spine?
- Would rather love a book everyone hates or hate a book everyone loves?
- Your favourite book has been adapted for TV – yay! Would you rather they changed the ending but the casting was perfect or would you want a faithful adaptation but your favourite character looks nothing like you imagined?
- Would you rather read curled up by a roaring fire or lying on a sunny beach?
- Would you rather read a book with an annoying cliffhanger (and the author hasn’t written the next one yet) or read a book with a brilliant ending but your favourite character dies?
- Would you rather read your least favourite book monthly or never be able to read your favourite book again?
Thank you again to Laura for tagging me. She’s over at Roachie’s Reviews so go give her a follow for more awesome bookish content!
And, until next time…
Happy Reading! x
