Dakota Tagged Me :)
Tagged with a romance meme by the lovely Dakota Cassidy....

Contemporary, Historical or Paranormal?
Contemporary and paranormals. I used to read historicals but I'm a history buff and get caught up in the details to the point I will actually go and look facts up so I no longer really enjoy reading them.

Hardback, Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?
Hmm - mostly mass market or trade. I'll buy hardback only for some authors because storing them is so hard and the expense is rather large to make it my primary format.

Heyer or Austin?

Amazon or Brick & Mortar?
I used to buy almost everything online but I now have a reader posse at my local Borders and the lovely Andrea runs it for us and watches for upcoming books and things we might like. Now I mostly buy there if I can.

First romance novel you ever remember reading?
The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss - I still have my original copy!

Alphabetize by author, alphabetize by title or random?
I'm anal about it - genre then author then title when it is a keeper. The rest are on the book mountain by my bed until I can no longer walk and remove them.

Keep, throw away or sell?
I have some keepers but only a limited space. I tend to donate most and sell a few.

Read with dustjacket or remove it?
Remove it - it must remain pristine!

Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake?
Both - for different reasons.

Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?
When tired or I fall asleep - I have done this!

"It was a dark and stormy night" or "Once upon a time"?
Can't I have both? Maybe in the same story?

Crusie or SEP?

Buy or borrow?
Buy unless I've borrowed a book until my order comes in.

Buying choice: Book Reviews, recommendations or browse?
All of the above but the reviews have to be someone I have a track record of agreeing with.

Tidy ending or cliff-hanger?
Tidy for the story being told. I hate major cliff hangers for the hero and heroine but I don't mind them for the universe.

Morning reading, afternoon reading, or evening reading?
All of the above, any time I can spare.

Series or stand alone?
Yes! :)

Favorite book of which no one else has heard?
Sheesh - I tell everyone about my favorite books! This is impossible for me but I bet the meme really means a favorite not well known book. L.E. Modesitt's book Gravity Dreams.

Who to tag - how about Lacey, Kristin and Lauren Dane :)


  1. ah, you got me! LOL, I'll do it Saturday (tomorrow is booktalk day)
