Womens Fiction Book Meme
Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal? Unless it's Balogh, Valdez, or I can't get to sleep, not historical.
Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback? You have to ask? Mass market paperback.
Heyer or Austen? Please. Austen.
Amazon or Brick and Mortar? Amazon's business practices drove me back to brick and mortar.
Barnes & Noble or Borders? Barnes & Noble online, mainly because they aren't affiliated with Amazon, and they've always given me great customer service. Borders brick and mortar because their store is less stodgy and their stock more interesting.
Woodiwiss or Lindsay? Hmmm. Who to choose. Lindsay because she's more prolific. And she has better hair.
First romance novel you ever remember reading? True romance? "Bride of the Rif" by Margaret Rome. And yep, I still have the book.
Alphabetize by author Alphabetize by title or random? Author then pub date, genre, and degree of re-readability. What? It's my system.
Keep, Throw Away or Sell? Always donate or pass along to family, friends and readers.
Read with dustjacket or remove it? Dustjacket stays on lately because the pup likes to chew anything made of paper.
Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake? I have to admit, I've given up on both.
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks? Read straight through or stop at whatever point in the book I am when the current domestic crisis reaches critical mass.
It was a dark and stormy night or Once upon a time? Who wrote this meme? My mother? Neither.
Crusie or SEP? In a cage match? Definitely Susan.
Buy or Borrow? Buy unless out of print, then borrow.
Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse? Wave the pork butt in front of the starved tiger's nose, why don't you? Recs or browse.
Tidy ending or Cliffhanger? Cliffhanger. Or, if you're my editor and you're reading this, tidy ending.
Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading? Quantum reading. I like to read when I'm relaxing in the particle accelerator.
Series or standalone? Exemplary standalones that don't leave me wanting to punch out the author over the ending; otherwise, bring on the series.
Favorite book of which nobody else has heard?
La nuit des temps par René Barjavel.
To be extra mean, I'm tagging everyone who asks a question in comments today.
