Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
Honestly? Nah. I mean, I’ll try for most. But at the end of the day I know I don’t need to. I’ve found, often, that watching the movie first can be a good way to get into a book anyway, whereas reading the book first often leaves you with complaints about the film adaptation. Plus, with all the content out there it is kind of hard to know which movies were books first all the time.
Format Snob: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, ebooks, or audiobooks?
As much as I appreciate the convenience of ebooks, something I never thought I’d say, I could never give up physical books.
Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Here’s my reasoning; people who don’t read have a tendency to be incredibly and painfully dumb. Now, when I say I can’t marry / date a non-reader, I don’t mean it in the sense that they have to read fiction or even books, but rather that they have to read something. My boyfriend tends to read the news, rarely picking up books at all. But if he never read and only watched tv or something? Then we’d have a problem.
Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Probably erotica or horror. I don’t read either.
Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
This is the part where I insist that YA is a genre and therefore the perfect answer to this question. For all you “snobs” out there who insist that YA isn’t a genre…I guess I’d say fantasy.
Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Well, people tend to be incredibly snobbish about literary fiction and non-fiction in my experience.
Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
Yeah, unfortunately I’ve been snubbed for reading fiction. On numerous occasions. As though non-fiction is the only thing worth reading. 🙄
