Would You Rather: Book Tag

Today on YouTube I saw a video by The Readables about a new book tag created by RayKayBooks on YouTube.  Even though it’s the BookTube edition and I do have a BookTube channel which I haven’t posted on in ages because I’ve been crazy busy, I decided to do a quick post here on the blog because I thought it’d be fun.

1. Would you rather read only trilogies or stand alones?

I would rather read only stand alone books.  I’m not a huge fan of series anyway and most of them I feel are way too drawn out and go on forever.  In general I prefer stand alones so I don’t think I’d be missing out on too much if I just stuck with those.

2. Would you rather read only female or male authors?

Hmm, I think the majority of my favorite books and also all the books on my TBR are written by men so, in order to read as many of the books I have on my TBR, I’d have to say only male authors.

3. Would you rather shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?

I don’t usually buy books and when I do it’s usually because it’s obscure and I can’t find it at the library or traditional bookstores so I end up on Amazon.  But, if I were a person who bought books, I’d rather support an actual bookstore and go there in person to buy my books, so I’d say Barnes & Noble.

4. Would you rather all books become movies or TV shows?

I’d rather see the book adapted to a TV show because then they could remain true to the book and include all the important bits and really spend time developing characters and plotlines.  Of course ideally it’d be a really high quality TV show on HBO or something that was really well done.

5. Would you rather read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

Reading just 5 pages a day would be torturous, especially if it was a great book, so I’d say 5 books per week.

6. Would you rather be a professional reviewer or author?

As fun as it would be to get paid to read and review books, I think I’d rather be an author. I’m sure it’s a lot of work, but it’s always been something I’ve daydreamed about and I’d love to experience it.

7. Would you rather only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?

I don’t generally re-read and many of my favorites I have such fond memories of that I wouldn’t want to spoil them because I’m sure I’ve changed a lot since I first read them. So I’d say always read new books.

8. Would you rather be a librarian or book seller?

I think I’d like to be a book seller.  It’d be fun to have my own shop and get to select books and recommend them to customers and help others find amazing reads.

9. Would you rather only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?

I don’t really have a favorite genre, but if I did I think I’d rather read from that because I’m pretty picky about books and there are a lot of genres I really don’t like, so I’d be fine sticking to one genre like, science fiction, for example.

10. Would you rather only read physical books or eBooks?

I’d have to say only physical books because I really do prefer them.  That would complicate things when I travel or go on vacation, but I guess I’d just have to find a way to deal with it.

What about you?  Which of these would you prefer?  Feel free to copy this and do a blog post or leave your answers in the comments below!
