It’s time for another “this or that”! Again, I will answer to five this or that dilemma’s. Feel free to join me in the comments!
Cover buy or blurb buy?
I don’t often read the blurbs of the books I read. Most times I trust on the title, the author’s name and recommendations to choose if I buy/borrow a book or not. And yes, the cover. I’m a sucker for beautiful covers!
Blurb buy or review-based buy?
Just like I don’t read blurbs of books that often, I also almost never read any reviews 😅 I know that sounds a bit weird for a book blogger that mainly posts … book reviews. So, if I had to choose between buying a book based on the blurb, or based on the reviews, I’d choose the blurb. I just don’t want to be spoiled or influenced in forming my opinion on a book, in any way!
Binge read or treasure series?
I’m not one who binge reads whole series. Don’t misunderstand, I’d love to! I’m just easily distracted by other books I guess 😂
Classic or contemporary?
This is a tough one 🤔 I think I’d choose contemporary though. Mainly because I read for leisure and to relax, and contemporary books are often written in a more understandable language that reads more easily. Especially since I want to read (classic) books in their original language and English isn’t my first language!
Reading snack or not?
Yes. I’ve noticed that I can focus more easily on a book while keeping my hands busy. Otherwise I’ll begin picking my nails and skin. And what’s better than keeping my hands busy while eating snacks 🤤
