The Book Snob Tag
This tag comes from We Write at Dawn, and is all about the hoity-toity opinions you might have about books and reading. Don't feel guilty about your choices--let's celebrate them. Here, take a look at mine!

DO YOU ALWAYS READ THE BOOK BEFORE WATCHING THE FILM/ TV SHOW?
Nope. And sometimes I still don't. For example: before, during, and after watching Game of Thrones, I never felt the desire to read the books and I probably never will. After watching (part of) The Mortal Instruments movie I had (and still have) zero motivation or desire to ever touch those novels.
YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE 1 FORMAT IN WHICH TO READ BOOKS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. WHICH ONE DO YOU CHOOSE: PHYSICAL BOOKS, EBOOKS, OR AUDIOBOOKS?
As much as I love physical books, I'm going to go with eBooks. I've really gotten into them now because of living in Japan and having to move back home...I want to keep acquiring books forever but the practicality of owning that many physical books is impossible. I have over a thousand ebooks and will probably continue to get more. If it meant that I could only have one format of book the rest of my life, it would be eBook for the convenience and the allowance of as many books as I want.
WOULD YOU DATE OR MARRY A NON-READER?
I have dated non-readers before...admittedly it's a little disappointing at first but it's not a deal-breaker. Just as long as they understand books are important to me, we'll be ok.
YOU HAVE TO DITCH ONE GENRE – NEVER TO BE READ AGAIN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. WHICH ONE DO YOU DITCH?
I'd ditch Westerns because I don't read those anyway.
UBER GENRE SNOB
YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE TO READ FROM ONE GENRE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. WHICH GENRE DO YOU CHOOSE?
That's easy. Fantasy! It's already my genre of choice and I could read it forever.
WHICH GENRE DO YOU THINK RECEIVES THE MOST SNOBBERY FROM THE BOOKISH COMMUNITY?
I think the romance genre gets a lot of hate from not only literary fiction authors but other genres, too. It's the most crapped-on genre out there, and it shouldn't be. We really owe a lot to romance authors, who keep publishing afloat, have an incredible work ethic, and have a great connection to their readers and the rules of the genre. They know what readers want and deliver every time. There's a lot to admire there.
