No, Wait, That’s Not My Ravenclaw Answer, What?

The Would You Rather Tag

It’s Sunday. It’s a breezy evening for a tag. Thank you Joe @ Thoughts and After Thoughts, my ever dependable provider of tags! You can check out his entry here. And while you’re at it, do read his latest discussion: What If Bloggers Had Blubrs? It’s incredibly entertaining! (And not just because I was mentioned twice.)

Here goes…

WOULD YOU RATHER READ ONLY TRILOGIES OR ONLY STAND-ALONES?
I’d rather go with stand-alones. There is something sublime about capturing a story in just one book. The want for more mingling beautifully with—but never overcoming—satisfaction.

WOULD YOU RATHER READ ONLY MALE OR FEMALE AUTHORS?
Not to be a party pooper . . . but I refuse to answer this question.

WOULD YOU RATHER SHOP AT BARNES AND NOBLE OR AMAZON?
Right now, I live in the Philippines and there’s no Barnes and Noble here. So.

WOULD YOU RATHER BOOKS WERE MADE INTO TV SHOWS OR MOVIES?
I’m always interested with news of books getting adapted for TV. I think these allow more space for creative interpretation and/or departure. Except I’m a sucky TV series guy. So yeah. Gimme the films!

WOULD YOU RATHER READ ONLY 5 PAGES PER DAY OR 5 BOOKS PER WEEK?
I know for a fact that I cannot devour five books in a week—well, maybe if all five books are mediocre, then I can jump right off from one title to the next, which will probably leave me in a reading rut. BUT 5 pages per day? Daaang, that’s two months for a 300-page novel.

WOULD YOU RATHER BE A PROFESSIONAL AUTHOR OR REVIEWER?
A professional author thank you very much.

WOULD YOU RATHER BE A LIBRARIAN OR A BOOKSELLER?
I’d rather be a bookseller just because I’m curious about the business side of our community.

WOULD YOU RATHER READ ONLY YOUR FAVORITE GENRE OR EVERY OTHER GENRE BUT YOUR FAVORITE?
UGH. Where is the fun in this question? Okay. I’m all for stretching your horizon but I have to go with my favorite genre. No, wait, that’s not my Ravenclaw answer, what?

WOULD YOU RATHER READ ONLY EBOOKS OR PHYSICAL BOOKS?
Easily physical books. I’m old school.

So what does this tag tell you (and to some extent me)? I’m indecisive. *Drops mic.*

Tag, you’re it!

  1. “Would you rather read Winger and More Happy Than Not…or Simon V and Extraordinary Means?” — What I read when you refused to answer the question. Although I know your answer to the one author you’d save (in whatever horrible situation they’re in). 🙂

  2. Thanks for the tag, Miel! Here’s the link to it: http://wp.me/p6aDX4-4W
    I saw this in the comment above, and so question: which author would you save in whatever horrible situation they’re in? I’m just curious! And, my answer to that question is Becky, hands down.

    Barnes & Noble or Amazon? Neither. Books of Wonder, forever!
    Male or female author? There aren’t two genders. And, besides, I cannot choose between reading Becky Albertalli forever or Adam Silvera. That’s an impossible decision to make.

    1. MY THOUGHTS! Re: male or female authors. And, um, Books of Wonder is definitely one on my list of places to visit in the future! As for the Devil’s, er, Joe’s getting-back-at-me-for-Red-Queen comment, you actually answered it for me. *Winks twice.*

  3. Regarding the favourite genre question, what is your favourite genre? The notion that people are willing to confine themselves, even in hypothetical situations, to single genres is baffling.
    Also, the fact that you, and everyone else, have been able to do this tag is amazing. Just reading the questions is infuriating – your first GIF sums it up perfectly.

    1. Welcome back Levi! Good to hear from you again too. Yeah, no. It’s something to reading across different genres with having your favorite acting as sort of a safe net, but once you take that out of the picture… That’s how it is for me, at least. Idk. But, yeah. That gif is so on point.

  4. I would so rather be a bookseller because I would just sell myself books and everyone would be happy and I would be broke. #awesomeidea
    AHH THESE ARE SUCH COOL QUESTIONS. (Well, the very American ones are a bit awkward. XD) And ugh, male vs female authors shouldn’t be a question either. That’s so mean! I would read 5 books a week because…I…do….already. 😄

  5. Hey there *waves* It actually is bummer that maybe a year ago, I could read 7 books a week…but that just doesn’t work anymore. I prefer to savour my books while I read them (is that a thing?) and kind of let myself think about them after I’ve finished. I think, currently, 3 books a week is my thing.

    TV Shows vs Movies? HAHAHAHAHA TV Shows, obviously. I’m with you on the whole “more creative freedom” and I’m a binge watcher (6 episodes a day for GoT) so yep ;P

    1. Wow. 1 book a day? That’s some superhuman powers (at least in my eyes)! And book savoring is completely a thing! I think 3 books a week is an optimal number. That way you can ponder about and/or review one title before jumping right into the next.

      PS. I once was in a week of GoT binge watching. It was Season 4 when I decided I want to join the bandwagon.

  6. Yes, I’m so with you on physical books. I don’t think I would be able to live happily without the smell of books. And I refuse to read ebooks, as well, so there’s that.
    I’m Ravenclaw, too, and I would also choose only my favourite genre. Fantasy is so diverse and within that one genre there is so much possibility, and I would quite happily only read fantasy and never any other genre, if I had to choose.
    Fantastic answers, particularly to number 2! xx

    1. IKR! Although, in my case, I do read ebooks, mostly e-ARCs. I think they’re very convenient when traveling. But, yeah, I will always choose physical copies. And hooray fellow Ravenclaw! Same here, contemporary is so diverse I’ll have enough variety on my plate.
