Do You Actually Have Good Taste In Books Book Tag

Look at this sassy title. It drew me to this tag. I don’t think it’s fair to discredit anyone’s taste in books. All that matters is that you enjoy the books that you read. That being said I found this tag intriguing and figured I would give it a shot.

Found on aramblingreviewer

1.  Hardback or paperback?

Hardback all the way. They hold up better and look way better on my shelf.

2. Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?

Harry Potter for sure. How could I ever say otherwise?

3. The smell of an old book or the smell of a new?

The smell of a new book is more pleasurable to me. I’m a little too germaphobic to be sniffing old books.

4. Stephen King or RL Stine?

This is difficult. As an adult I have not read either of these authors. However, I really enjoyed the Green Mile by Stephen King. So, I’d have to say Stephen King.

5. Sci-Fi or Fantasy?

Is saying “it depends” a copout? I read more Fantasy than Sci-Fi. So, fantasy would have to be my preference.

6. Reading indoors or outdoors?

Indoors. I’m very easily distracted so, the elements would work against me.

7. Twilight or 50 Shades of Grey?

Uggggh. Twilight I guess.

8. Shop online or from a local bookstore?

I don’ t do a lot of online shopping. I prefer to be able to walk out with my books in my hand. I need that instant gratification.

9. The Great Gatsby or Catcher in the Rye?

The Great Gatsby. I used to say that I hated The Great Gatsby but I reread it 3 years ago and really loved it.

10. Bookmarks or dog-earing?

Bookmarks. No dog-earing ever.

11. Dr Seuss or Roald Dahl?

Because of my love for the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory I have to choose Roald Dahl.

12. E-book or Audiobook?

I’ve been really into audiobooks recently. They are perfect for my drive to and from work.

    1. I don’t know that I would say that someone’s difference of opinion is a “horror.” After reading both authors I prefer Harry Potter. That is not to say that I don’t appreciate The Lord of The Rings in the least.


      1. I read The Lord of the Rings when I was eight or nine I didn’t read HP for another 8 years. JK is simply put an average writer, her writing is average and her worlds is average. JRR made a crazy big world and wrote a ton of great stories to.


      2. It’s great that you’ve gotten to experience both worlds at different points in your life. Again, preference is preference. To say JK is an average writer is a bit shortsighted. I believe that I can enjoy both books. I do not have to discredit one great author to enjoy the other author.

        I appreciate your love and passion for Tolkien. I was also young when I first read his writing. However, I will stand by my statement and my preference which is for the Harry Potter series. To each their own right?

        Thank you for offering your insight.
