The Book Snob Tag

I first saw this over on A Little But A Lot a couple of weeks ago and thought it I’d give it a go.

ADAPTION SNOB: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
I try to because otherwise I can struggle to get the picture of the film out of my head if I go back to the book and they’re not always the same and I think that films based on books shouldn’t just be judged on how closely they keep to the plot of the book.

FORMAT SNOB: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one would you choose: Physical, EBooks or Audiobooks?
Pushed to answer this I’d say e-book, I just find my kindle the most convenient way of reading in most situations and its so easy to switch between books.

SHIP SNOB: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Reader, I married him.  My husband is not a reader, I think he read four books last year and that was four more than the year before; this has never been any kind of problem, he’s still happy for me to talk about books I’m reading and I have blogging/Goodreads for connecting with other reads.

GENRE SNOB: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Probably thrillers/horror, I don’t enjoy horror so generally don’t pick it up anyway so this wouldn’t be difficult at all.

UBER GENRE SNOB: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life? Which genre do you choose?
This is hard because I’m normally reading more than one thing at once so I can switch between genres, possibly contemporary fiction as I think that would give me the best shot at being able to talk about the books I’m reading with other people.

COMMUNITY SNOB: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
I can’t say I’ve noticed one specific genre being snubbed, possibly rom coms, these are the kind of books my mom adores, she once said it was because she could drop it on the floor, pick it back up again and not have to bother properly finding her place again as it didn’t matter if she re-read a few pages or skipped ahead but she loved the escapism from.

SNOBBERY RECIPIENT: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
Once at university I was reading Wuthering Heights and had left it in the living room, one of my flatmates friends walked in and asked who was reading that rubbish.  I think they probably would have said similar regardless of what book it had been but from then onwards I generally made sure I left my books in my room.

Have you noticed much snobbery in the book blogger community? If you want to give this a go make sure you comment with you links so I can check our your answers.
