Would you read a book just because of the hype?
I don't honestly read books because of their hype.
My aunt suggested that I read the Harry Potter series because it was such a cool world. I found out about Twilight through a second grader who was reading them. I read Fifty Shades after everyone of my patrons kept asking me for the book series. I will read books based upon suggestion but not because everyone else is reading them. I often find that I end up discovering obscure books that maybe not everyone else has read that way.
Q: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback, etc?
Answer: I go through phases where I really crave the feeling of a physical book or reading books on my Kindle. I think I will always cherish the feel of the pages of a physical format.I really prefer to be sent ARC's in physical format so that way I can go back and find passages more easily. I like the convenience of my Kindle and that I can take 100 books with me on one device.
