Which do you prefer? (Quick answers–we’ll do more detail at some later date)

  • Biographies? Or Autobiographies? Autobiographies.
  • History? Or Historical Fiction? Historical fiction.
  • Series? Or Stand-alones? This is a tough one. I honestly don’t know, since both have their benefits and drawbacks. Today I’ll say stand-alones.

  1. I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices! This week’s question is difficult!

    I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.
