Ah ha! So I deleted all my cookies, temporary Internet files, and my history. I logged out of gmail and logged into Blogger fresh instead of allowing it to auto-log me in. Finally Blogger decided I had earned the right to type into the message field. I feel so privileged! LOL
Wish I would have thought to do that over the weekend. I would have been able to post this meme when I wanted to on Friday.
Womens Fiction Book Meme
1. Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal? I use to love historical romances but now I'm more into paranormal. Although, I'm not real big on vampire romances, which is weird because I love vampires. Guess I just like mine mean and scary and staked.
2. Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback? Mass Market. I'll buy trade but I'm never happy shelling out an extra couple bucks for them. As for hardback...yeah, I'm too cheap.
3. Heyer or Austen? Since I don't even know who Heyer is, I'll have to go with Austen. At least I've read one of her books.
4. Amazon or Brick and Mortar? Both. I prefer brick & mortar but I'll buy from Amazon, too.
5. Barnes & Noble or Borders? Borders. Although I may convert now that B&N has partnered with Starbucks. Yummy!
6. Woodiwiss or Lindsay? Easiest question on the list. Lindsay hands down. She was my first romance author and is by and far my favorite. Her Malory series tickles my funny bone.
7. First romance novel you ever remember reading? Captive Bride by Johanna Lindsay. My step-mom gave it to me when I was about 13. It began a life-long addiction.
8. Alphabetize by author Alphabetize by title or random? Genre, actually. I have separate shelves for romance, fantasy & scifi, horror & mystery. My romance shelves far outnumber the others, but fantasy is quickly catching up.
9. Keep, Throw Away or Sell? Most of them I keep. Very few do I trade in. And I never throw books in the garbage (well, if they happen to get soaked in the tub or a basement flood, I might).
10. Read with dustjacket or remove it? For those few hardcovers I do read, I always remove the jacket.
11. Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake? I'll have to go with Anita because I don't know who Sookie Stackhouse is or what she writes. Maybe I should check her out..
12. Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks? I prefer chapter breaks.
13. It was a dark and stormy night or Once upon a time? Are we talking children's books here?
14. Crusie or SEP? Crusie.
15. Buy or Borrow? Both! Although, I must admit I have a book buying tendency that could result in our family ending up in the poor house.
16. Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse? Recommendation and browse. I never pay attention to book reviews. I figure my tastes likely are quite different from the reviewer's and I prefer to form my own opinion.
17. Tidy ending or Cliffhanger? Depends. In romance, though, it has to be a tidy HEA ending. I don't get my HEA, don't expect me to buy another of your books.
18. Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading? Whenever I can reading.
19. Series or standalone? In romance - standalone. In fantasy or scifi - both work for me.
20. Favorite book of which nobody else has heard? Hmm. You want a romance title, right? For the Roses by Julie Garwood is pretty good. The Malory series by Johanna Lindsay...this could go on forever so I'll stop there.
Thanks to Paperback Writer for the meme!
