1. Dracula. As long as he's not eating me!
2. A tear, no question.
3. Oooohhhh, that's a good one. Visually.
4. Dog-ear. I'll already do it in a pinch. Yes, I'm a monster, I know.
5. Meh. I'd find a serial killing werewolf more enticing.

Tex2Flo The one for which I have the strongest emotion is about writing in the margins. I could never do it, but am in awe of those who do it with abandon. To me, it is defacing. To them, I guess it is a way to remember or explain further. 2y

1) Read based on my mood
2) Read only one 5⭐️ read a year. There are lots of 3 and 4⭐️ reads I enjoy, but I couldn't cope with a 1⭐️book every month!
3) Harry Potter
4) Bookish clothes so I can mix it up, though I would love a bookish tattoo one day ☺️
5) First half. It's rare I bail and this would make it worth sticking with!

1. Mood. I've tried planning, and it just doesn't work for me.
2. One 5🌟 book a year. I like being able to bail on books I don't like. And 3 or 4🌟 reads are still a wonderful way to spend my reading time.
3. Harry. But only to get to Ron.
4. Hmmm... clothes for now.
5. First half, but I'd need to know that it was worth pushing through to get to the good stuff!

#bookishwouldyourather

1. Read based on mood-I learned this year that planning creates a reader's block for me, esp overplanning
2. Read a 1 star book a month-Just make'em really short & make up for it with many 5 stars for balance.
3. Harry Potter-the Wizarding World is my home!!!
4. Bookish clothes-tattoos cost a lot, & do you know how many books I could buy for that money 😂
5. 1st half-I can't stand when a book peters out

2. Read one 5 star book a year, but I'd prefer a lot of 3-4 ⭐️
3. Be friends with #HarryPotter, but preferably Hermione😉
4. Wear bookish clothes
5. Agh neither! Middle preferably but I guess maybe the end

1. I plan loosely then read based on my mood.
2. I'm a little stingy with my 5⭐️ ratings, so I guess one 5⭐️ book per year.
3. Harry Potter (I don't know who the other one is)🤷🏻‍♀️
4. I'm getting a bookish tattoo! 😃I just can't decide on what exactly.
5. Definitely the first. I like to end on a good note.

It was all relatively straightforward-til that last question! I alway read the blurbs, but I do like the idea of going in 'cold'. Any chance I could try 'Never' for 3 months, and see how it goes? If not, I'll have to say always...

2) Favorite Author - some of my favorite characters aren't in the best of situations 😅
3) Always cry a bit, hands down.
4) 😩😩😩 Why did you do this to me??? If it's an accurate history, then read 1,000+ pages. Then I can complain to everyone.

2. Based on their cover. I occasionally judge books by their cover.🤷
3. In a forrest. I always feel most at peace among trees compared to water.
4. Fantasy
5. It's a tie. As much as I love Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester, I like the Matthew MacFadyen Mr. Darcy.
