Rapid Fire Book Tag

I have been nominated by Mairead O Driscoll Hearne to take part in this fun post, so are it goes.

eBooks or physical books?

I much prefer a real book, I love the feel and smell of a book.

Paperback or hardback?

Paperback for me as I always have a book in my bag when I go anywhere and find hardbacks too heavy with my spondylosis.

Online or in-store shopping?

I much prefer going to a bookshop and finding books I may not have heard of but due to health issues I do buy the majority of my books online.

Trilogies or series?

I do love a good series and the excitement and anticipation of a new book coming out.

Heroes or Villians?

Definitely a villain, especially a good looking one.

A Book you want everyone to read?

Possession by A S Byatt, it is a beautiful book; part thriller, part love story and part historical.

Recommend an underrated book?

I found this difficult so looked up books tat were classed s underrated and was surprised to see The History of Love by Nicole Kraus.  This is such a beautifully written book about the power of the written word and the importance of love.

The last book you finished?

Mount by Jilly Cooper – absolutely brilliant.

Wierdest think you have used as a bookmark?

I can’t think, I always have a bookmark in a book, I have a collection of them.

Used books, Yes or no?

A big yes, I love having a book that someone has read before me, it makes it more special.

Top three favourite genres?

Historical, Contemporary fiction and thrillers.

Borrow or buy?

I always buy my books, I used to borrow from my mum when she was alive but thats the only time.

Characters or plot?

I find both very important, you need both to make a good book.

Short or Long book?

Long book for me, I like value for money and love a big tome of a book.

Long or short chapters?

Depends on the book and plot.

Book to movie or book to tv adaptation?

I hate any book I have really loved being adapted for film or tv as they tend to change too much and loose the essence.  If I had to choose I would choose book to movie as I have a lot of DVD adaptations of the classics which I love watching.
