Book Tag – Inside and Out

Time for a bit of fun. I originally saw this tag over on Feed The Crime, who had originally seen it on Jessica Writes.

Without further ado, here we go!

1. Inside flap/Back of the book summaries: Too much info? Or not enough?

It tends to depend on genre but I tend to ignore blurbs for the most part (although I do post them for book reviews). There have been a number of occasions for me (especially with thrillers) where a big part of the story has been spoiled by the blurb. So, generally, I would say too much info. However, I do wish more books would put PART XX of the series so I don’t accidentally start on book 4 (again)

2. New book: What form do you want it in? Be honest: Audiobook, E-Book, Paperback, or Hardcover?

While I do like the look of a nice hardback I find them annoying to read to be honest. Love a good paperback, and while I do love my Kindle – I prefer to read a paperback than an ebook.

3. Scribble while you read? Do you like to write in your books, take notes, make comments, or do you keep your books clean clean clean?

I never really take notes but if I do it’s in my special book reading/reviewing notebook or on a post it.

4. Does it matter to you whether the author is male or female when you’re deciding on a book? What if you’re unsure of the author’s gender?

No. It doesn’t matter.

5.  Ever read ahead? or have you ever read the last page way before you got there? 

While I don’t read the last page I almost always flick to the end so see how many pages there are.

6.  Organized bookshelves, or outrageous bookshelves?

My bookshelf right now is outrageous, if only because I have more books than actually fit on it so they have spawned all over the place. Books I plan on reading next are on my kitchen table. If you call that organised….

7.  Have you ever bought a book based on the cover (alone)?

Haven’t we all?

8. Take it outside to read, or stay in?

A lovely day in the shade of a nice tree, or in a beer garden, is a great place for me to read, as long as I’m left alone, but I do most of my reading inside because I read when I get the chance… and becuse Irish weather is usually shite. 😉

So there we have it! I tag anybody who would like to take part. Please share your links below, or tag me, so I can see you answers.

Until next time. 🙂


  1. The gif made me laugh 🙂
    I like to read outside but the bugs get into the book.
    Totally prefer paperbacks too, hardbacks are better quality and all that, but they are annoying.
