Pam over at Reading Is Fun Again (great blog name) started the new meme to get a few thoughts on a few bookish things. You know how much I love sharing my thoughts/opinions on stuff I thought it would be perfect to add my two cents in too!
I created Thoughtful Thursday, because bookish thoughts kept popping up in my mind while reading, and I wanted to explore these questions and get your opinions too! -From Reading Is Fun Again
Today's Thoughtful Thursday QuestionDoes the type of book (e.g., genre, demographic, page length) inspire you to read the book in a particular format (e.g., audio book, paperback, hardcover, e-book)?
My AnswerWow. That is a great question.
You know what, I never ever thought about this. Hhmmm. I do listen to audiobooks and I do read both hard and paperback books (Rarely ebooks. That is another discussion post). But I have never thought about my buying preferences according to genre or demographic. Hmmm!
Ok... Let's see.
I do buy the book club book of the month in audio if I know I will be busy that month and won't have a lot of time to sit and read. I will buy an audiobook based on the popularity of the narrator over author any day. The longer the book (page wise) the more likely I am to get the audiobook.
As you can see, as I get busier and busier with work, book club, and life the more I listen to audiobooks.
What about you? Does the type of book inspire you to read the book in a particular format?
