    I kinda have a thing for questionnaires. I used to work for a market research firm conducting surveys over the phone. This is a 20 Questions Book tag. Some of the questions were similar to the other tags but this is still fun to answer. Borrowed from The Book of Jess

    How many books are too many in a series?

    Okay so Whyborne & Griffin goes up to 11 which is okay because it’s Whyborne’s birthday. Psycop is now on the tenth and no end in sight which is fine because Vic and Jacob. But normally, I don’t have the patience to go through several installments. So unless the author’s first name is Jordan, I’m sticking to standalones, trilogies and novellas.

    How do you feel about cliff-hangers?

    The trick to cliffhangers is waiting until all the books are released before diving in. Easy to do if trilogy, if not, you’re doomed!

    Hardback or paperback?

    Paperback. Because they easily fit in my bag.

    This is probably one of the most difficult questions to ask a bookworm.

    review here

    Funny that this reminded me of Lolita, which I liked but Call Me By Your Name bored me to death.

    Bookmarks or dog-ears?

    Bookmarks are cute. I like designing my own.

    Reviews here, here and here.

    Can you read while listening to music?

    I used to but I’m more into audiobooks now.

    Multiple POVs or one POV?

    For romance, it’s always a thrill to get both POVs.

    Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days on average?

    I want to read a book in one sitting but I have to space it out over multiple days. My eyes are easily strained nowadays so I have to do limit my reading time to an hour per day. Bummer.
