Sup! Hope you all are having a great Tuesday! (I mean, of course you are. It’s not Monday, people.) It is time for another #BookTagTuesday!!!
So…I wasn’t tagged for this, (am I ever? ;)) but I saw this on Leah’s blog called Leah’s Books.
There were no rules listed, but I’m gonna add a few…
- Link back to where you first saw this post
- Answer all the prompts
- Tag at least 5 other people
- List a snobbish thing you do in relation to reading (unless you want to list just a random snobbish thing you do. I won’t judge. ;))
ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?
I TRY to. I read both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings before seeing the movie for sure! Yeah…I try to, but it doesn’t always happen.
FORMAT SNOB: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?
Physical books. Definitely! I don’t like eBooks. (Although I’m always reading one. ;)) I can’t STAND audiobooks!!! They are so cringey! Plus, I’m a visual learner/observer so audiobooks don’t work that great. Now, audio dramas are the best! Almost as good as physical books. They’re literally listening to a movie!
SHIP SNOB: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Yeah…but he’d better be able to listen to my constant book talk.
GENRE SNOB: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Erotica. I truly don’t see the point of that genre.
UBER GENRE SNOB: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Oh! This is a toughy!! I’d have to say any kinds of fiction! That way I can have my favorite genres! (Fantasy and historical fiction.) I’d be perfectly happy with that choice for it covers SO many subgenres.
COMMUNITY SNOB: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Hmmm…okay, I can think of two, but neither are genres…they’re just types of books. Both middle-grader books and classical books seem to not get either enough notice or just general snobbery.
One snobbish thing I do is judge by the calligraphy the book title is in. (Weird, right?) If it is celtic looking, I read the summary and if it lives up to the cool calligraphy, I’ll borrow it. Now, I don’t always do this. But in libraries, you always so the book’s title right? And though the saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” it’s hard not to! It’s human nature, people! Now, what I think the saying should be is, “Don’t decide your final judgement of the book by its cover.” Is it just me, or does that make more sense?
- Paper Hearts
- A Whisper of Ink
- Wishing Upon a Star
- Ani’s Books
- Inside My Library Mind
- Eternity books
- Pages and Plots
- Madame Writer
That’s all for this book tag! Hope y’all enjoyed reading! What would y’all’s answers be to these prompts? Let’s chat! Thanks for reading! God bless!
