This was something I answered for a swap I did, and I had so much fun with it, I thought I’d share the answers with y’all…

Would You Rather…
Drop your favorite book in the toilet -or- watch it fall into the wood chipper?
You know what? I was going to say toilet, but changed my mind. I’d rather drop it in the wood chipper, because I can buy a new copy for myself AND the shredded book can become compost.
Read only 1 book a year but remember everything -or- read 100 books a year and remember nothing?
Yeah, I’d rather remember what I read, so I’ll go with the one book option. Unless it’s a shitty book I’ve been given… LOL
Read only the first page of a book -or- read only the last page?
First page only. I need to be hooked and interested, not spoiled…
Get locked in a Library -or- locked in a bookstore?
While both have their merits, I’d prefer the library, as there’s more than just books there to work with.
Read a book with a cliffhanger ending -or- read a book with a heartbreaking ending?
Screw cliffhanger endings! I actually tend to despise those with a white hot passion that is hotter than the sun. Gimme some tears and a solid final ending.
Read an awesome book -or- watch a movie?
Honestly, it depends on the book and movie. But for the most part, I have preferred books to the movie adaptations, so I guess I’ll say the book for now.
read only series -or- only stand alones?
This is predicated by how much money and time I have. If I have enough of both, series. If not, then I’ll go with standalones, as they’re easier to consume in the long run.
Professional reviewer -or- famous author?
Famous author, hands down. I have so many stories I want to tell people…
Favorite book become a movie -or- tv show?
I’ve had both happen and it’s a toss-up. Movies are usually more finite and able to stick to the canon of the books, whereas TV shows can run way off-canon, as it were. But TV shows have more of their own extant canon to work with… Honestly, I really can’t choose here…
Would you rather your eyeballs be located next to your bellybutton -or- have to quote Scarlett O’ Hara 10 every day?
A bellybutton view of the world could be interesting. And far less painful than anything to do with Gone with the Wind.
