Booking Through Thursday: Preferences

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme held every Thursday. I've missed out on the last couple of weeks, so I'm jumping back in... This week’s question asks:

Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)
  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious?
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers?
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction?
  • Poetry? Or Prose?
  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies?
  • History? Or Historical Fiction?
  • Series? Or Stand-alones?
  • Classics? Or best-sellers?
  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose?
  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness?
  • Long books? Or Short?
  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated?
  • Borrowed? Or Owned?
  • New? Or Used?
    (Yes, I know, some of these we’ve touched on before, and some of these we might address in-depth in the future, but for today–just quick answers!)
So, here are my answers.....
  • Reading something frivolous? Or something serious? A little of both
  • Paperbacks? Or hardcovers? I own more paperbacks than hardcovers, but it doesn't matter what they are when it comes to reading them.
  • Fiction? Or Nonfiction? fiction, all the way
  • Poetry? Or Prose? prose
  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies? don't read too many of either
  • History? Or Historical Fiction? historical fiction (quickly becoming my favorite genre)
  • Series? Or Stand-alones? both
  • Classics? Or best-sellers? best-sellers
  • Lurid, fruity prose? Or straight-forward, basic prose? straight-forward and basic
  • Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness? plots
  • Long books? Or Short? either
  • Illustrated? Or Non-illustrated? non-illustrated
  • Borrowed? Or Owned? I visit the library about as frequently as my own bookshelf, which is quite often.
  • New? Or Used? doesn't matter
