Amelia 1868 - Karen B
Yay! Congratulations Karen.

Special "End of the month/Spring fever giveaway!" 

What are your reading habits? What are your favorite genres? Least fav.? Hard cover, paperback? e-reader, what kind?

1. Favorite and least fav. genres -
My favorite genres are - Women's Fiction, Historical Friction, Christian Fiction, Chick-Lit, some light Paranormal, and memoirs.
My least fav. is - Sci-fi, Fantasy (just not interested in other worlds lol) Dark Paranormal, Erotica (eeewwww)
On the fence - Mystery (some I like, some I don't) Courtroom drama

2. Hardcover or Paperback -
I prefer paperback only because its lighter and easier to hold but... I don't like those small pocket paperbacks. I like the larger ones, what are they called? Trade paperbacks? Yeah that's what they are called, I just looked it up.

3. E-reader? If so what kind and how ofter do you use it?
I have a nook color. Love it! I have a ton of books downloaded on it. I actually read on it quite a bit.
I also have a new ipad! on that I have the nook app and the kindle app. I have already read 2 books on it. The only thing I don't like is that it is bigger than the nook so it is harder to hold in bed.

  1. 1. My favorite genres are Historical Romance and Historical Fiction. I also enjoy cozy mysteries and ghost stories. I hate erotica or stories with too much sex in them.

    2. I agree with you that I prefer paperback because its easier to hold. But, I will be the HB version if it's a keeper and one of my favorites for the year.

    3. E-reader? Nope! I've tried reading on my i-pad and it's just not the same. I prefer holding my books and turning the pages, thank you. [Same with a newspaper].

  2. 1. Cozies, mysteries, suspense, some thrillers, womens fiction. I don't read horror, erotica, fantasy (so many genres in that category now), most paranormal.

    2. I like all 3 - hard covers, paperbacks and trades. Trades are really nice because the print is usually a bit larger and there is more space between the sentences which makes for easier reading for my old eyes!

    3. I don't have an e-reader or any of the other stuff - only my computer. I can't imagine reading a book on it although I know you can!

    3. E-reader? If so what kind and how ofter do you use it?

    I have a couple kindles because I was given two and won one. They pretty much are full of freebie books but I have so many real books that I don't get around to my kindles often. Occasionally I pick them up and they are great for trips or if you get stuck being in the hospital.

  6. Cool contest! I love it!

    Ok here I go,

    1. Favorite and least fav. genres -
    Favs: Lately, contemporary. Ideally it's a contemporary story with a hint of mystery.
    Least fav: non fiction
    On the fence: historical fiction
    The thing with historical fiction is, when it's good it's realllly good but when it's bad it's realllly boring.

    2. Hardcover or Paperback?
    I use to be a hardcover girl.
    Now I'm allll about my eBooks.

    3. E-reader? If so what kind and how ofter do you use it?
    I use the Amazon Kindle app on my iPod. I know it's tiny but I love it. It fits in my pocket and is ready for me whenever I get a moment. A crucial thing with my active little one. I usually read a tiny bit every night. Unless something sucks me in.

    FAB contest.


  7. Wow, Wendy! You are awesome. Btw, I love your response to erotica, lol.

    Least fave- sci-fi, and the majority of non-fiction

  10. 1.Favorite genres: thriller, mystery, romance, and chick lit.

    2.I like both hardcover and paperback books. But I like hardcover best.

    3.I have a Kindle Fire, but I don't use it much. In the past six months I have read 3 books on it. I much prefer a hardcopy book. I didn't really buy the Kindle, my husband got it for me not knowing I prefer regular books.

    Thanks for having the giveaway.

  11. Sorry I forgot to list my least favorite books. Which are Paranormal, Sci-fi, and fantasy.


  12. 1. Favorite and least fav. genres -
    My favorite genres are – Mysteries, biographies, devotionals, teens, childrens, and fantasy.
    My least fav. is - Sci-fi, Dark Paranormal, Erotica

    2. Hardcover or Paperback -
    I prefer hardbacks because they hold up better. And since I’m a librarian and tend to collect books as well as reading them, I just like the way the hardbacks look on my shelves.

    3. E-reader? If so what kind and how ofter do you use it?
    I have an iPad with multiple reading apps (Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Overdrive, etc.) I always have an e-book on hand to read while walking on the treadmill. And sometimes, you can get an e-book from the library faster than you can get a print copy. So while I read mostly print books (and audio books in the car) I do read quite a few e-books.

    I follow via GFC – I’m not sure how long I’ve been a follower, but it’s been a while.

  13. 1: Favorites: Young Adult contemporary, dystopian, mystery, thriller, chick lit

    Least favorite: Erotica- no thanks!, paranormal romance

    2: Both. It depends on what kind of book I'm reading, I like my chick lit in trade paperback and everything else in hardcover. I know, I'm strange.

    3: I have a Nook, one of the old school ones. I rarely use it, maybe once every six months. I usually just use my laptop to read ebooks. Now if I can get my hands on a Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet, that's different lol.

    I'm not sure how long I've been following your blog (GFC follower Tiffany Drew) but I think maybe two years?


  14. 1. My favorate is romance, Historical romance, and cozy type mysteries. My least favorate is Sci-fi, Phantasy and errotic.
    2. I like paperback, manly because I can always stick one in my purse and take for dr's visits and such. I hate to sit and wait.lol.
    3. I don't have a e-reader although I've tried to win one, no money right now. I think I'd like a paperwhite kindle tho.
