A good tag post never hurt nobody, right? I found this on the blog Pretty Purple Polka Dots by my friend Aoife and really liked it. Although I am ashamed to say that my reading has been incredibly terrible, I am still a huge lover of books and I have like 700 to 800 of them. I really need to count again. I’m slowly but surely building my own library, which is just the ultimate dream. So here is a little insight to my relationship with books and of course, feel free to do the tag yourself.
01. Would you rather have a friend who loses your books, or one who dog ears them?
At the risk of everyone hating me, I’ve done my fair share or dog earing books. Trust me, I don’t even know why. I wouldn’t be super happy for someone else to do it to my books though, but losing them would be a lot worse.
02. Would you rather secretly love a book everyone else hates, or secretly hate a book everyone else loves?
I don’t really care, if people hate or like things, cause I just decide what I like for myself and have no shame. I’m much more disappointed in myself for being super mainstream, which often, I am.
03. Would you rather be stuck in a very long plane or train ride without a book?
Definitely a plane. If there is a good entertainment system, I don’t need a book. And even if not, I usually have enough things in my backpack to do. I like to come prepared. Sleeping or writing are always good options. And I’m not a big fan of riding trains.
04. Would you rather have dinner with your favorite author or your favorite character?
Definitely character. I don’t really care much for the authors, sorry not sorry. I mean, I’m grateful for their amazing stories, but they’re not really on the top of my to-meet-list.
05. Would you rather date a character you have a crush on or your crush from real life?
Well, I can always keep dating a character in my creative mind, but I do prefer going out with my crush from real life. I don’t have one, though, which is weird, since for the most part of my life, there was always someone I was crushing on. I really need to leave the house more.
06. Would you rather have your favorite book turned into a movie, or your favorite movie turned into a book?
Definitely my favorite movie turned into a book. Seriously, can someone please publish Dirty Dancing? Thank you!
07. Would you rather read a book with an annoying cliffhanger, or one where your favorite character is killed off?
That depends, if it’s a series or not. If so, a cliffhanger may be super annoying, but overall, I can read more, since there will several books. If there will only be one book, a cliffhanger would just be cruel. Therefore, better kill him off, so I can find closure.
08. Would you rather lose the ability to read any new books, or the ability to re-read books you’ve already read?
I hardly ever re-read books and they’ve already given me wonderful hours of creative entertainment, so I’m always looking forward to new stories.
09. Would you rather live in a library or a bookstore?
Since I have this habit of not borrowing books, cause I want them all on my shelves, I’d say bookstore, although libraries are probably a lot more beautiful and contain works, no money can buy. But I don’t want people saying shhh all the time. I’m a talker and like to interact. So, bookstore.
10. Would you rather lose your place or get a paper cut, every time you read a book?
For some reason, I’m not sure, if I understand this question correctly. Does losing your place meaning losing the last sentence, page or so you’ve read? I’m just gonna go with that and say, I’d prefer that over paper cuts, cause they are brutal.
11. Would you rather have to always read in the dark, or always read books with tiny text?
I guess both is tough on the eyes. How can you even read in the dark? Do I have a flashlight? I need more information for this question. So I guess it’s books with tiny texts then. I can still see pretty good up close.
12. Would you rather read by a fireplace, or on the beach?
Isn’t a fireplace the perfect place to read? On the beach, you get sand everywhere, there are probably a lot of people and working on my tan would be more important than reading a book. But the fireplace is just ideal. Wrapped in a blanket and a cup of tea by my side sounds a lot better. I’m also more of an indoor person.
