Would You Rather? | Book Tag

It’s time for another tag! I always loved playing would you rather as a kid, so I was super excited when I discovered that the Would You Rather Book Tag actually exists.Β Thanks so much to Bridget @ Bridget & Books for tagging me!!

Rather read only a series or stand-alone books?

When I was younger my answer to this question definitely would have been series, but nowadays I find that the majority of the books I read are stand-alones. (Probably because I read many more classics now, which tend to not be series.)

Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?

To be honest, the gender of the character doesn’t really matter to me so long as the character is well-developed, interesting, and has depth. But for the sake of this question I’ll go with a female main character because I can relate with them more easily.

Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or other actual bookstores) or Amazon?

I definitely prefer shopping at physical bookstores than online (although usually online prices are cheaper). You just can’t replicate the experience of leisurely strolling through towering shelves and being able to pick up books and check them out before actually purchasing them.

Rather all books become movies or TV shows?

Movies! If all books became TV shows I would never have time to watch all of them… I’m so bad with keep up with series like that!

Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?

5 books per week, so long as I could find the time to do so. Think of how many books I could read in a year!!

Rather be a professional book reviewer or author?

Oooh, interesting question!! I would rather be a professional author because it has always been my dream to write and publish a book. It would feel absolutely amazing to finally achieve that goal!

Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?

Okay, I think I found a loophole to this question. I would rather read a new book every six months if it meant that I could only reread books in between… that’s allowed, right?!

Rather be a librarian or own a bookstore?

Probably own a bookstore because I think it would be really fun to pick out gorgeous editions of books.

Rather only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?

Favorite genre because that would probably also include my favorite author (in my case, the genre would likely be classic literature)

Rather only read physical books or ebooks?

PHYSICAL!!! I can’t even remember the last time I read an ebook.

What are your answers to these questions? What do you think of mine? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I love bookstores as well, I don’t get to visit them too often but when I do, I just love the atmosphere and all the books so, SO much. And yay for a professional author – I’d love to be one someday as well. πŸ™‚
    Great answers! πŸ™‚

  2. This is an interesting tag! I would have told you I read more standalones than series, but I was looking at the books I’ve read this year and that’s not quite the case. I would really like to be a librarian because if would be fun to encourage people to read and I just love libraries. Also, I read a lot of ebooks. I have a new zealand library membership which means sI can get books that are either not available or super expensive in India. I prefer physical books, though, so when I move to NZ I’m going to use my library a lot.

    1. That’s so cool that you have an NZ library membership!! I use my local library SO MUCH when I’m home in the summer. It’s really small and doesn’t have everything I’m looking for, but it’s great in a pinch when you’re flying through books!

      Thanks!! πŸ™‚


  3. Great post! πŸ˜€
    I actually prefer to buy books online, not only because they’re cheaper (that’s a huge bonus tho), but also because every time I go to the bookstore, it’s kinda awkward ?? xD I usually already know every book they have there, because I’ve seen it online. And their selection of English books is very small and limited. And, as I spend most of my time in bookstores, I already know the building. πŸ˜› I love visiting new bookstores, tho! ❀

  4. This was fun to read! I might have to tag myself. πŸ˜‚ I really don’t understand the 5 pages or 5 books question. Who would pick only reading 5 pages a day? 😱 I didn’t realize that you want to be a writer! I think that’s great, and I’m looking forward to your future works. 😊

    1. Definitely tag yourself! πŸ™‚ And thanks!! I used to really want to publish a novel, but I don’t do much creative writing anymore. I would love to publish something non-fiction, though!


  5. Omg your local bookshop looks so pretty and cute! That sign is SO pretty. I do order books online sort of regularly, but that’s because some (actually quite a lot rip) books are just hard to find in bookstores here. Nothing beats a visit to an actual bookstore though ❀
