The Bookish Snob: #BookTagTuesday

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…

My Rules:

  • 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 SNOBYou 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?

My Tags:

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!

Sometimes you read a book so special that you want to carry it around with you for months just so you can stay near it.

  1. Im so glad you decided to jump in on this one, because I loved your answers! I’m always reluctant to tag new people in this type of post because I don’t want to make anyone feel obligated to participate, but I might just have to start tagging you in some going forward! And as always, feel free to consider yourself tagged on any of my posts. 💕

  2. Haha, your answer to the date/marry a non reader is hilarious. But same though, I wouldn’t discriminate just because they don’t like books (I’ll just make them a reader lol) but they have to at least be willing to listens to my rants. I also like your version of the saying much better! Though…I kind of make my final judgement based on my initial opinion of the cover 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

    Thanks for tagging me!!

  3. I love this tag! I did it earlier this year and it’s so much fun to do! And I love your answer to Ship Snob (would you date/marry someone who didn’t read books). My boyfriend doesn’t read half as much as I do, but he constantly has to listen to me talk about my latest book, so I agree with you that willingness to listen is definitely imperative!
