user2637 08/30/2013 #

^^ Nice!

I did this swap when it was public and none of those people are in the group, so hehehe I get to 'reuse' some of my answers. Obvi what I'm reading now is different, but my fav genre is the same. ;)

KateKintail 08/30/2013 #

@user2637 I did it back when it was public, too, but definitely a few of my answers have changed. It'll be great to revisit them and I'll have to do all the bonus questions to challenge myself ;-)

ImzadiRose 09/ 5/2013 #
  • Do you read mainly series or stand alone books?
  • Does your SO read as well? What is there favorite book/author?
  • Do you challenge yourself to read a certain amount of books a year (like the GoodReads challenge)?
  • Have you hit your goal each time?
  • Do you refuse to read books outside your comfort zone, or do you enjoy trying something new?

Bonus ones:

If you have seen the movie First, will you go back and read the book?

Have you read 50 shades of grey? Thoughts.

How do you pick out a book to read?

Have you ever been to a book signing?

Where do you purchase your books?

Do you first look up a book online and read the reviews on a book you currently want to read? Has the comments ever swayed you to NOT read the book?

ImzadiRose 09/10/2013 #

LOL at the 50 Shades question @Littletiscrafty . I don't know if anyone wants to hear my rambling negative thoughts on that one. :D

Littletiscrafty 09/12/2013 #

@imzadiRose - that is why I posted it. I have NEGATIVE things to say about it as well lol

ImzadiRose 09/13/2013 #

LOL! Hope to get yours @Littletiscrafty to learn what you think. :)

Sorry for my grammar up there. "There", instead of "Their". UGH!! That's what I get when I type too fast and don't pay attention.
