  1. You and I have very similar answers, Vicki!

  2. This is so fun! I don’t care if a book is paperback or hardback but I don’t like mass market paperbacks. I listen to a lot of audio books too.

  3. I am so glad you did this! I love that you’ve used a bread twist tie for a bookmark. And, I am with you on passing up good books because the cover is bad. Shame on us, but I am not going to change.

  4. Fun! I’m trying to think of a movie I liked better than the book, but am coming up blank. I too like watching shows based on books.

    • I always think the book is better. I guess because there is so much more that happens in the book, the movie is usually only 2 hrs. so there is a lot missing.

  5. Haha, I’m a hardback snob too. It happened because I was a massive re-reader when I was a kid. I’d reread my paperbacks until they fell apart. After that, I only wanted hardcovers.

  6. Fun Vicki – I listen to more audios lately, as well, it seems. I may play along.

  7. Oh great tag! I may have to borrow it! I don’t think I’ve ever read Zoya but you’ve got me curious. I liked used books too but like you I’m picky about them. My main thing is smell. If a book smells too musty or too smoky it’s got to go.

    • Zoya is longer than I usually read (446 pages) and it’s an historical fiction. I’m surprised I loved it so much since I’m not a fan of either.

      I’m not a fan of musty or smoky smelling books either!
