Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal?
Historical, almost exclusively.
Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?
A bit of everything
Heyer or Austen?
Ha ha. Like anyone reading this blog needs to ask. Let me just say, my son’s middle name isn’t “Heyer.”
Amazon or Brick and Mortar?
Barnes & Noble or Borders?
Borders, usually. I once worked at a B&N and haven’t quite recovered.
Woodiwiss or Lindsay?
OK, here’s where you all get to find out what a huge fraud I am. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book by either one.
First romance novel you ever remember reading?
I don’t remember, honestly. I remember reading some of the Julie Garwood Scottish romances in high school, so probably one of those.
Alphabetize by author, Alphabetize by title or random?
I’m a librarian – and I keep work at work. At home, it’s complete chaos.
Keep, Throw Away or Sell?
Keep until destroyed by child or pet.
Read with dustjacket or remove it?
Remove it. (Or take it to work and get it covered in shiny library plastic!)
Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake?
Once again, I’m a poser. Neither.
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?
When I get bored, I start skimming. I often read romances completely out of order. If I make it more than 50 pages in without flipping to the last chapter, it’s the mark of a really captivating read. (Even if I skip to the end, I do usually go back. I just want to make sure the HEA is worth the investment.)
It was a dark and stormy night or Once upon a time?
Neither. It is a truth universally acknowledged.
Crusie or SEP?
Here comes the chorus – Neither.
Buy or Borrow?
Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse?
Tidy ending or Cliffhanger?
Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading?
As the title of this blog indicates, I don’t really recognize those distinctions anymore. It’s all just Sometime.
Series or standalone?
Favorite book of which nobody else has heard?
Kati in Italy by Astrid Lindgren.
On second thought – that is probably the first romance I ever read.
