Rapid Fire Book Tag

I found this on the page of Lectrice Vorace (a voracious reader). Thank you. Brilliant idea.

If you are interested in doing this, feel yourself tagged.

E-Book or Physical Book?
Definitely physical books, they have been my love all my life and no screen will ever replace them. I don't find it easy to read on the screen and can't concentrate as I can with a book

Paperback or Hardback?
Paperbacks, they are easier to carry around, don't take up so much space on the shelf and don't cost as much.

Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
In-store. It's so much nicer to choose a book while you have it in front of you. Plus, I like to support our local businesses.

Trilogies or Series?
Depends on the stories. I like both. If a story is well written, I like it to continue.

Heroes or Villains?

The last book you finished?
Rand, Ayn "We the Living"

The Last Book You Bought?
Mantel, Hilary "The Mirror and the Light" (The Wolf Hall Trilogy 3)

Weirdest Thing You've Used as a Bookmark?
I have nice bookmarks but if none is around, I use any scrap of paper, a shop receipt, a postcard, a ticket …

Used Books: Yes or No?
Of course. They have been loved before and will be loved again.

Top Three Favourite Genres?
Historical Fiction, Biographies, Dystopian novels.

Borrow or Buy?
I buy most of my books. Love to keep the ones I liked.

Characters or Plot?
I can't see how one goes without the other but the plot has to be good.

Long or Short Books?
Long. I always say, a book doesn't start before page 500.

Long or Short Chapters?
Short chapters.

Name The First Three Books You Think Of...
1. Stroyar, J.N. "The Children's War"
2. Zweig, Stefanie "Nowhere in Africa" (German: Nirgendwo in Afrika)
3. Pamuk, Orhan "My Name is Red"

Books That Make You Laugh or Cry?
Books that make me laugh.

Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Our world.

Audiobooks: Yes or No?
No. I can't pay attention, my thoughts wander off and then I can't find the plot again.

Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
Of course. What a question!

Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
Book to TV adaptations. Too much gets lost in a movie.

A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
Harris, Joanne "Chocolat"

Series or Standalones?
Isn't that a repeat of the question above about trilogies or series? Anyway, I don't care, as long as it's good, I read any kind.

    1. Thanks, Judy. I thought it was nice to get to know the person who posted it and I am sure this way people will get to know me better, as well.

      Looking forward to your list. ;)

  2. I can't believe I missed your post! Well, as they say, better late than never. It was a lot of FUN reading your answers. Loved "A book doesn't start before page 500." :D
