Filed under: What Are You Reading? — aliceaudrey @ 3:40 pm

Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal?

All the above!  Seriously, I read them as they come to hand.  I try to read more of whatever type I happen to be writing, but will often simply grab as the mood strikes me.

Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?

Mass Market

Heyer or Austen?

Both!  Repeatedly.

Amazon or Brick and Mortar?

Brick and Mortar when I don’t know what I’m after.  Amazon when I’m after something in particular.

Barnes & Noble or Borders?

Both.  Preferably with a gift card in hand.
Woodiwiss or Lindsay?

Lindsay.  I find Woodiwiss a little slow-paced.
First romance novel you ever remember reading?

Already blogged this.  Not a straight answer.
Alphabetize by author Alphabetize by title or random?

Alphabetized?  Hah!  Heaped by just read, reading, going to read soon, and going to read sometime.  Now and then they make it to a bookshelf.

Keep, Throw Away or Sell?

Keep if I absolutely love it or learned a particular lesson from it. Sell if I can.  Um… we won’t talk about what happens to the rest.
Read with dustjacket or remove it?

Dustjacket?  What dustjacket?

All right, on those rare occasions when I actually have a book with a dustjacket I keep it on.  Generally I have to because I’m going to have to return the book in the condition I got it.
Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake?

Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?

At the top of the nearest left side page.  But then I only stopped because one of the kids wants to use the bathroom so I can’t hide there any longer.
It was a dark and stormy night or Once upon a time?

Once upon a time it was a dark and stormy night?  If I’ll put up with the purple prose, I’ll put up with the backstory too.  Maybe.

Crusie or SEP?

SEP?  Yay Crusie!

Buy or Borrow?

Beg, borrow, buy, or check out from the library.  I’ll take them any way I can get them.
Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse?

Mostly Browse, but I can be moved by friends.  I don’t read many reviews.
Tidy ending or Cliffhanger?

Depends.  I hate cliffhangers that are forced, or that make me wait a year for the next book.
Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading?

Any time I can sneak off to the bathroom.  They don’t call it Mommy’s Reading Room for nothing.

Series or standalone?

Both.  But series will put me off if I happen in the middle and can’t figure out what’s going on.

Favorite book of which nobody else has heard?

No such thing.

I tag

Oh boy.  Here comes the hard part.  Hmmm…..  Bev’s in revision Hell.  Pam has been quiet lately, but I think she said something about being swamped.  I’ll bet I can catch Kelly lurking, and maybe Christina.  That’s it!  I tag Kelly and Christina!



  1. Darn it! You know me too well. OK, I’ll bite. I needed something to blog about anyway. It may take me a day or two before I get to it. All that studying, you know. 🙂

  2. Take your time. I know you are insanely busy.

  3. It may take me a day or two to figure out what I got tagged for. I mean, I didn’t see no yellow volkswagon drive by.

  4. LOL. Christina, you’re supposed to answer these questions on your own blog. Let us know when you do it so we can all come see.

  5. Thanks for not tagging me! LOL!

    I have in-laws visiting, I just finished polishing the first 35 pages of my erotic romance for the passionate ink contest (gulp) and I filled out the paperwork to get my deadbeat ex-husband to pay up his child support and he’s been slightly “irate” about it (how do you spell jerk?)

    Now, I start revising my first erotic romance as it was rejected but with a “revise and resubmit” sentence. . . so, I’m starting that tomorrow.

    Throw in two sick kids and me with a cold/sinus infection — you’ve got quite a stew!

  6. Poor Pam! I hope everything gets better for you soon. Seems like any time there’s one problem you’ll end up dealing with a bunch.
