#TAG: the bookish snob

Here’s my first attempt at a tag! Thanks @potterheadaanya for making me try this out!

ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?

I try my best to. I have been team ‘books are better than the movie’ for as long as I can remember. I mostly don’t bother watching the movie after reading the book, on the other hand, if I come across the movie and don’t realize that it was originally based on a book till after I’ve seen it, I go back and read the book version, as a rule.

SHIP SNOB: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

For me, reading builds your personality, emotional maturity and creative thinking in ways that other forms of art are unable to, and so I would jump at the idea of a partner that is an avid reader as well. However, over the years, my boyfriend has taught me, that this might not necessarily be the case and proved to be a notable exception. Thus, for the forseable future, I will be settling down with someone who watches movies almost as keenly as I read books.

FORMAT SNOBYou can only choose 1 format to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?

Hardcopies, without a doubt. Ebooks are convenient, but they don’t make you engage with the plot as much as a paperback does and I am yet to try an audiobook, despite numerous recomendations by my brother.

GENRE SNOB: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

Self help, and Historical guides. I cannot conjure up any reason as to why but I don’t see myself picking up a book from these sections anytime soon.

COMMUNITY SNOB: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

Unpopular opinion: Classics, and maybe rightly so.

Nominating @belladonna @fisbibliofiles @lightmotifs, can’t wait to read your crack at the tag!
