Would You Rather: Bookish Edition

Would you rather only read the first book or the last book in a series? The first. I don’t want to be completely lost

Would you rather never go to a bookstore or a library ever again? Bookstores. I love libraries too much. I can always buy books online.

Would you rather live in a fictional world or have fictional characters live in your world? I want to live in a fictional world. That’d be fun.

Would you rather buy every book or borrow every book? I love buying books. My bank account doesn’t however.

Would you rather read out loud or listen to someone read to you? Read out loud. I don’t do it often enough.

Would you rather always bring a book with you or never be able to? Always bring a book. Ebooks make this much easier.

Would you rather throw a book into a fire or into water? Water. I don’t have what it takes to burn a book.

Would you rather eat dinner with your favourite author or favourite character? I’ll pick the brain of an author any day.

Would you rather spoil a book for someone else or have someone spoil a book for you? I can’t stand spoilers. So I’m going to spoil a book or ten for someone else. Sorry not sorry.

Would you rather have to recommend books you hate or be recommended books you hate? Be recommended books I hate. What an awful life either way.

Would you rather only read at home or on the go? I’m such a homebody. I do a lot of reading at home. I’ll survive doing other things on the go.

8 Things Readers Can Agree With

  1. Books over boys. Who wants to go out with a boy when they can go out with a book?
  2. It takes a reader to understand another reader. Experience doesn’t lie.
  3. Clothes and chocolate will never beat books and other bookish items. Can anyone explain why people continue to gift clothes that don’t fit or chocolate no one ever eats?
  4. A book lover often befriends other book lovers. Although most book lovers are fantastic at pretending to like non-book lovers because readers are beyond kind.
  5. The book is better than the movie. Movies have one purpose. To disappoint.
  6. Owners can treat their books however they like. Bend the spine, dog-ear a page, lend it to another reader.
  7. It doesn’t matter what anyone reads or how much they read. The world would be better off without judgemental assumptions and conclusions.
  8. I automatically like you more if you want to talk about books. I don’t have many friends on Goodreads because most of the people I know aren’t keen readers. It’s tragic, but I have no time to convert anyone into being a reader.
