Today I’m answering the questions from The Book Snob Tag created by Tia and all the Books on Youtube
1. Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
Yes, but only because I don’t really watch movies. I can think of only 5 movies I’ve watched in the last decade.
2. 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?
I would have to choose ebooks. I can’t focus on an audiobook so I just can’t use them. And my eyes are in really bad shape that is sure just to get worse as I get older. Print books will only work for me for so much longer and then ebooks will be my only choice.
3. Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
I married a sporadic reader. My late husband was a very fast reader, at least 100 pages an hour, faster if it was young adult or middle grade. But he read rarely. He would read thousands and thousands of pages in a week staying up late every night to finish a book and he would read through a gigantic series in a week that way. But then he wouldn’t read anything at all for six months to a year. More important than him actually reading though was his love and respect for books and reading in general.
4. Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
I would ditch romance. i do read some romance occasionally, but it is the genre I reach for the least often.
5. Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Science fiction would be my top choice for only one genre to read forever.
6. Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
I think young adult gets the most looked down on. Specifically young adult dystopian. There was just so much of it so close together that it all gets lumped in to the negative category.
7. Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
Not really. I read pretty eclectically, but I can’t think of anything I’ve been spoken to negatively about. The closest I’ve gotten is “why do you read so much?” These days I say “It’s the only keeping me half way sane since Jason died.”
Do you get asked how or why do you read so much?
