I sure have a hard time deciding on one though the questions are easy, hehe.

Pam said...

Ah, another point for the poetry fans! I envy your ability to keep it short.

Susan Whelan said...

I'm impressed that you were able to keep your answers short. I tried, but didn't quite manage it.

anthonynorth said...

Well, it can only be both, to most of them, anyway.

Dot said...

Your answers are very similar to mine but I think you were more decisive than me!

Becca said...

I like your answers. They are somewhat similar to my own.

Yvonne said...

I like to own my own books too and I love books with alot of plot to it.

CeeCee said...

I said trade paperbacks too. Hardcovers are too cumbersome to hold.

jlshall said...

You did a great job with the quick answers! I had a harder time, but it was fun anyway. And I agree about new or used - love them both.

this was a fun BTT :)

Susan said...

It was really hard to decide between the choices given.

It was tough sticking to short answers!! We are much the same, however I do like hardbacks for my home library, but trade paperbacks are so comfortable to read!

Lots of similar answers! I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices!

I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.

JoAnn said...

We agree on most of these!

Ted said...

I'm impressed, very disciplined with your short responses!!

Suko said...

My own answers would mostly be "both" or "it depends"! : )

Anonymous said... really answered them shortly

The Reading Momster said...

we have some answers that are similar :)

Shari said...

I notice lots of people opted for historical fiction. I love history myself! Your answers are even shorter than mine!

Anonymous said...

Seems pretty similar to mine. Happy Thursday!

Gentle Reader said...

I think "both" is my answer to a lot of these, but I forced myself to commit--but really, it's "both" for many...
Good answers :)

Marie Cloutier said...

Nice! It was a fun one this week.

Mervi said...

The quick answers were hard to do but turned out to be rather fun.
