The Book Snob Tag

books

I saw this tag over on Words About Words and liked it so much that I decided to give it a bash! So, here goes!

Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?

Not always, no, but I do try to. Sometimes I honestly think it’s better if you don’t though, because I have yet to see an adaptation that really lives up to the book, and it is so frustrating sitting through a film sort of saying ‘uh, no that didn’t happen!’ or ‘well that’s just wrong’ to yourself the whole way through.

Format Snob: You can only choose one format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which do you choose: physical, ebooks, or audiobooks? 

Physical books all the way for me. I just love turning the pages, and the satisfaction that comes with turning the last page of a well enjoyed book.

Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a nonreader? 

I already do – my boyfriend has no interest in books or reading, he is a movie and television kinda guy. He does think the amount I read is impressive though, even if he does feel like the third wheel in our relationship sometimes haha

Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

Tough to pick one, but it would probably be horror. Not for me, thank you!

Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

Probably contemporary. Or romance. It’s hard to choose!

Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

I think chick-lit is definitely looked down upon. I don’t see why though, I love me some fluffy, feel good romance novels sometimes!

Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?

Yeah…a lot of the time, especially amongst work peers – it’s almost seen a my weird little quirk – oh you’re reading again – and it can be annoying. But I just tend to smile, and nod, and comfort myself with the fact that I have a hobby that I enjoy and I can lose myself in!

I’m not going to tag anyone in this post, but if you like the tag and want to give it a try, I’d love to read your answers!

’73 Questions’ is a feature in Vogue magazine, where they ask the biggest celebrities 73 quick-fire questions. However it has recently been doing the rounds within the blogging community and is a great way to learn the little things about the people behind the blog. I was nominated by the brilliant Kirsty at Love Popcorn – go check out her blog here

The Library Lover’s Book Tag

So, since I’m becoming such a pro at these tag things, I thought I’d give this one a try. I wasn’t actually tagged in this one, but I saw it on Jack’s Bedtime Reading and thought it looked like a good one to do, especially since I’m using my local library more than ever before the past few months. So, here it goes!

-How often do you visit your local library?

Usually about once or twice a fortnight – I get a lot of books ordered to my library, so I tend to go in when I get a notification that a book is waiting for me. I haven’t just gone for a browse in a while though, because I have so many books already waiting to be read.

-Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you can read or are you someone who checks out the exact amount of books you intend to read before they are due?

Oh God, I am SO bad for taking out too many books. I’ve had to restrain myself a lot, because I’m like a kid at a candy store when I go in there, I’ll have an armful of books that I will never get through on time, so I’ve had to stop myself doing that!

-How old were you when you got your first library card?

I can’t really remember, but I know I was youngish. My mam signed me up for it and I remember reading a whooooooole lot of Babysitter’s Club and Sweet Valley High books from the library. Oh and The Saddle Club books. Who else remembers The Saddle Club? They were great!

-Do you go to your library for a particular book or do you check out anything that piques your interest?

Lately I’ve just been going to collect the books that I’ve specifically ordered in, so I don’t make it past the reception desk. I have so many books already that I need to get through that I don’t really have time to pick up random library books, I wouldn’t get through them on time!

-Do you only check out books or do you also get DVDs, audiobooks, etc?

Yes, I only check out books. Audiobooks aren’t really for me, and I have Netflix, regular television etc for when I want to watch programmes or films. So just books for me!

-From what section do you check out most of your books?

General fiction usually, if it’s my local library – it’s really small so their selections aren’t amazing. There is another library that’s fairly close to me also though and they have a great YA and fantasy section that I’ve been known to peruse on occasion!

-What is your favourite part of using your local library?

The free books! The online ordering system is great too, I can request a book from any library in the country and they will send it to my local library when it becomes available. I love to buy books, but unfortunately they are so expensive, so the library is great. I don’t understand why people wouldn’t avail of the service, I think it’s amazing. I’m a huge library fan (obviously!!)

 

I really enjoyed this tag, libraries are one of my favourite places to go! Like before, I’m not going to tag anyone, I just did this because I saw it and thought it seemed fun.
