BTT: What do you prefer?

I forgot its Thursday and I already posted something else. As a rule I don’t do two posts a day. But anyway. Do visit the other post and let me know what you think of Reader’s Digest Condensed editions.

Onto BTT.

Today’s questions is (are)
Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)

Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
Both, depending on my mood. Alternately perhaps.
Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
Both, preferably paperbacks.
Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
Fiction, sometimes non-fiction, mainly memoirs
Poetry? Or Prose?
Prose. I don’t read poetry.
Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
Any. No, I think autobiographies.
History? Or Historical Fiction?
Historical Fiction
Series? Or Stand-alones?
Stand-alones. But sometimes series have their own charm.
Classics? Or best-sellers?
Both.
Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
Again both
Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
Plots, I think.
Long books? Or Short?
Short or medium for that matter
Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
Both
Borrowed? Or Owned?
Owned
New? Or Used?
Both, preferably old.
(Yes, I know, some of these we’ve touched on before, and some of these we might address in-depth in the future, but for today–just quick answers!)

Considering how much I love to ramble on I had a hard time giving the answers. I had to curb my urge to elaborate many times 🙂

What about you?

  1. Like everyone else I found it hard to give simple answers. It was difficult for me to choose because I like a variety of different types of books. Happy BTT!

  2. Lots of grey areas in this week’s answer.

    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.
