This or That Book Tag



~ RULES ~
Mention the creator of the tag. 
Thank the person who tagged you. 
Tag other people and spread the love. 

Thanks to Serena from Savvy Verse & Wit, for tagging me in the This or That Book Tag, and to Ayunda from Tea & Paperbacks, the creator of this book tag.


1) Reading on the couch or reading in bed?
Both!  It depends on what time it is.  I also love to read in a La-Z-Boy chair, with my feet up.  That is pure luxury to me! 

2) Main character: Male or Female?
I've certainly enjoyed both over the years, but I think that now I  prefer a female main character, because I can relate to her more closely. 

3) Sweet or salty snacks while reading?
I don't usually snack while reading.  Only once in a while, I'll have a bowl of pretzels, or an apple, while I read.  But, I may have a cup of tea, or coffee (if it's early in the day) as I read.

4) Trilogies or quartets?
Not usually.  The last one I attempted was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, and I only finished the first book.

5) First Person or Third Person POV?
I enjoy both.  But there is something about First Person POV which draws you in more closely, perhaps. 

6) Night or morning reader?
Once in a (very) blue moon, I read in the morning, in bed or on the couch, before my day begins. But usually, I read in the late afternoon, evening, or night. 

7) Libraries or bookstores?
Another tough choice!  I am a huge fan of Amazon, I adore traditional bookstores of all sizes, and I love our public library, which has a sweet little bookstore in it that sells discounted books and cards.  So, once again, my answer is both!


8) Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry?
Most of the books I read are touching, but also have humor in them.  I only read a handful of primarily "funny" books.  I gravitate toward more serious fare, for the most part. 

9) Black or white book covers?
Hmm . . .   do you mean the background?   I like interesting covers. They could be black, white, or black and white--or colorful! 

10) Character driven or plot driven stories?
Characters are more important to me, probably because I don't usually read action-packed stories.

  3. I agree with you on first person POV - it makes a book feel like someone's telling you a story.

  4. So fun to learn more about you, and here we've been blogging together for as long as I can remember! You are sweet to tag me, and breathe new life into my posts; a meme hasn't been in my queue for ages, and I miss them. I'll post it soon. xo

  6. Interesting and interesting answers Suko.

    They seem to be very universal when taking about bookish people.

    Your reading/snacking choices are similar to mine:)

  8. This was fun to read but, I often find the questions tough to answer:) I'm a huge Amazon fan for their prices, fast delivery and of course convenience but, I also love bookstores.

  12. Thanks for tagging me, I will try to post sometime today. I haven't played a meme for close to a year, this will be a change of pace for me.

  13. How fun! Your answers are very similar to what mine would be. I'm not really a snacker, maybe just a cup of tea while reading, and I read a lot in the afternoons and the evenings. I tend to prefer a character driven story, too. :)

  15. What fun! I've played tag on the blogopshere before, but it's been a while since it's hit my ring. I'm with you on first person, but I could read any time of the day--and usually want to at the least convenient times.

  17. So here it is December, and I haven't posted this fun meme nor muchnof anything else, but I'm comforted that you, too, have not had much to say. Or so it would seem. What a strange year it's been for blogging, I hope 2017 will be better. Until then, Merry Christmas, dear Suko!
