Huge thanks for the lovely Siobhan for tagging us in this one. Be sure to check out her content and see how she chose to respond to these WYR questions. The creator of this tag is unknown.
READ ONLY TRILOGIES OR STANDALONES?
MANDY: Standalones! I hate waiting for series – I always forget what happens before the next one comes out. I love standalones since you get the entire story in one little snapshot.
SHA: A tough one out the gate? Not cool. I have to say standalones. Even though I prefer the character development and clear endpoint with trilogies, I lack the commitment to see the series through. Either I forget plot lines, or I don’t have surplus cash when the books are out.
READ ONLY FEMALE OR MALE AUTHORS?
MANDY: Female. Since it’s most of YA, I would get more to read.
SHOP AT BARNES & NOBLE OR AMAZON?
MANDY: Barnes and Noble. I used to be a member, but I just enjoy it a bit more. Although I buy most of my books on Amazon now, though…huh.
SHA: As a Canadian, I’m swapping B&N to Indigo to keep the flow of the question. And easy—book shopping in person is way better than online. If you threw Book Outlet into the mix though. . .
ALL BOOKS BECOME MOVIES OR TV SHOWS?
MANDY: TV shows – you get more out of it!!
SHA: Oh, TV shows, definitely.
READ FIVE PAGES PER DAY OR FIVE BOOKS PER WEEK?
MANDY: Five books per week…I used to do that anyway, lol.
SHA: Five books per week. Once I read a page, I’m committed.
BE A PROFESSIONAL REVIEWER OR AUTHOR?
MANDY: Reviewer! I used to say author, but I’ve determined it was way too much stress, so I’ll save the writing for others and I’ll review the books.
SHA: Um. What determines a professional reviewer? *curious* I would go with reviewer though. I much prefer that side of the book life now.
ONLY READ YOUR TOP TWENTY FAVOURITE BOOKS OVER AND OVER (OR) ALWAYS READ NEW ONES THAT YOUR HAVEN’T READ BEFORE?
MANDY: Oh, ugh, I’m not sure. I think I might go with read new ones, because even though I love rereading now, I can live without it. I love diving into new books.
SHA: Another tough one. You know I’m huge on re-reading books. I’ve probably re-read more books than started new ones. But the same twenty, over and over? Even I have to say the second option is better here.
BE A LIBRARIAN OR A BOOKSELLER?
MANDY: Bookseller – I get a little too weirded out when library books aren’t precisely nice and pretty.
SHA: Ooh, bookseller. I really want my own business.
ONLY READ YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE OR EVERY GENRE EXCEPT YOUR FAVOURITE?
MANDY: I feel like I have multiple favorite genres, so I’ll go with my favorite since I wouldn’t have much to read without them.
SHA: I feel like after reading your favourite genre exclusively for a few yours, it won’t be your favourite, haha. And yet, that’s my answer!
ONLY READ PHYSICAL BOOKS OR E-BOOKS?
MANDY: Physical. E-books hurt my eyes.
SHA: Physical. I struggle so hard with e-books nowadays.
