It’s Shiloh’s Fault

Womens Fiction Book Meme

Contemporary, Historical, or Paranormal?


Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?

Mass market.

Heyer or Austen?

Austen all the way. 🙂

Amazon or Brick and Mortar?

Brick and Mortar

Barnes & Noble or Borders?

Both. :o) But that’s only because I don’t live near Powell’s in Portland.

Woodiwiss or Lindsay?


First romance novel you ever remember reading?

Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss

Alphabetize by author Alphabetize by title or random?

You’re kidding, right?

Keep, Throw Away or Sell?

I would never throw away a book that’s in good condition. Period.

Read with dustjacket or remove it?

Read with it on.

Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake?

That’s like comparing apples to oranges. Can’t be done, so I’ll take both.

Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?

Since most of my reading is done on an ebook, I stop wherever I want. 🙂

It was a dark and stormy night or Once upon a time?

Once upon a time.

Crusie or SEP?

I haven’t read enough of either to have a preference.

Buy or Borrow?

Usually? Buy. I don’t read fast enough to borrow books.

Buying choice: Book Reviews, Recommendation or Browse?

Recommendations from people with similiar taste or browsing. I’m a big fan of blurbs and reading the first couple of pages.

Tidy ending or Cliffhanger?

I want a satisfying ending. Note that I didn’t say tidy. Very few cliffhangers deliver that. If they do, then I’m all for them.

Morning reading, Afternoon reading or Nighttime reading?

Definitely at night. The only reading I do during the day is my work and blogs.

Series or standalone?

If the author is a keeper of mine, then I’ll follow the series. If not, then no. I like them, but I read very few.

Favorite book of which nobody else has heard?

I doubt that exists.

I’m tagging May, PBW, and Charli.


I only ended up with five pages tonight, but I’m okay with that. I was really tired today. I’m just glad I pushed forward and made some progress. I think the brain is screaming for a break. And I’ll be more than happy to give it one…right after we hit page 300+. 🙂

  5. Hi Jordan — Oh, wow, your list looks familiar to me. Well, except I should probably take out stock in I buy most of my books through them.

    And I don’t throw/give away books either. Moving house is QUITE a chore around here. 🙂

  6. Hey Jordan,

    Saw your comment on RTB today. Where in upstate NY is the SciFi conference? Can you drop me an e-mail with details? nancyhenderson [at] tcenet [dot] net

  7. It’s Colleen Gleason’s fault. She started it. I thought I had escaped…

  8. Anya, I order a bunch from Amazon, too. But I’m also an instant gratification kind of gal. 😉 Yes, moving house here gets ugly too. There are some seriously heavy boxes to haul. *g*

  9. Sorry Nancy, I got confused. Shocker. It’s the World Fantasy Convention that’s being held in upstate N.Y. Nov. 1-4th. 🙂 Denconvention is being held next year in Denver. (Sci-fi/Fantasty Con)

  10. Think again, May. *ggg*

  11. Throw away a perfectly good book – even if I didn’t like it?!? Sacrilege! 🙂 Hang in there – you’re making great progress 🙂

  12. Thanks Tina!!! 🙂
