Sunday Stealing: Book Preference Meme

This week's Sunday Stealing was stolen from the now defunct, Tense Teacher.

Science Fiction, Fantasy or Horror?  I enjoy all three and ready many authors from each category.

Hardback or Trade paperback or Mass market paperback? I prefer mass market paperback for most all authors I read.  And of course I like trade paperbacks (comics).  I enjoy a hardback copy of books now and then but only if I can get them cheap.

Amazon or Brick and Mortar? Brick and mortar for the most part.  But I do purchase from Amazon quite often.

Barnes & Noble or Borders? Barnes & Noble...which I just went too yesterday.  I purchased Johanna Basford's book, "Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book".  I also purchased two trade paperbacks (Sandman) for my husband.

Bookmark or Dog-ear? Bookmark

Asimov’s Science Fiction or Fantasy & Science Fiction? Fantasy & Science Fiction

Alphabetize by author, Alphabetize by title, or Random? Random

Keep, Throw away or Sell? Keep

Keep dust-jacket or Toss it? Toss it until I am done reading the book then but it back on the book before putting the book on the shelf.

Read with dust jacket or Remove it? Remove it.

Short story or Novel? Novel

Stop reading when tired or at Chapter breaks? I stop when I am tired....or if I have to go tot he bathroom.

Favorite book of which nobody else has heard? "Gone With the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell is my most favorite book ever.  But I am sure plenty of people have heard of that book.  Another favorite book of mine is "Beulah Land" by Lonnie Coleman

Favorite genre series? The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.

Currently Reading? "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline


  1. I started the Maximum Ride series and grew to hate it. It began to feel it was never ending. I finally gave up.

  2. I like some of James Patterson's work, but I don't think I am familiar with the series you mention. I will have to check it out.

  3. You did a lot better with this than I did :)

  4. Half way through the book if the darn cover starts flapping, I take it off while reading - sometimes, and then put it on again when it's set aside. Thanks for the book suggestions. very much!
