Would You Rather (For Readers)

I love the game Would You Rather and have played it a couple of times on my blog. Last month I did a Writer’s Edition of the game. This time I’m doing one for readers.

I’m not tagging anyone in this, but feel free to answer these questions on your own. Be sure to link back to me because I would love to see your answers!


Would you rather only be able to read stand-alone novels, or always have to be reading books part of a series?

It depends on what the story is and who the author is, but I think I’d have to go with series. I feel like there aren’t many standalone novels anymore because books just get so popular. If I like a set of characters, then I definitely want to read more. So I’m going to have to say series with this one.

Would you rather only be allowed to read print books, or ebooks?

Print books. While ebooks are always at your fingertips, easier to bring with you, cheaper, and easier to buy instantly, I would miss that paper and ink smell. And the satisfaction of turning those pages and listening to them crinkle.

Would you rather never be able to re-read books, or only be allowed to read five new books per year?

This one was tough, but I have to go with only being able to read five new books a year. There are so many books I’ve read in the past that I would love to re-read. Plus, if I could never read Harry Potter or Warriors again, I think I’d be sad.

Would you rather read 50 pages a day, or only five books per month?

50 pages a day. You can easily read more than five books a month, depending on the length of the books. But I think it’s important to get into the habit of reading a little bit each and every day. And honestly, it’s not about how much you can read in a month. Just read because you enjoy it.

Would you rather read only one genre all the time, or read every genre except your favorite?

All genres except my favorite. Why? Because I think there’s a little of every genre into every book. My favorite is mystery, but there’s mystery in so many novels and genres that I think I would be satisfied either way.

What are your answers to these questions? Do you agree with me or disagree? Let me know in the comments below!

In other news, I’ve challenged myself to read five books between Sunday, February 19 and Sunday, February 26. Feel free to join me and check out my daily updates on Twitter, Tumblr, and my Bookstagram!
