Vivi's been (rather epic-ly) tagged consecutively by two lovely and awesome fellow blogging owls! This "Would You Rather" tag seems awfully fun, so huge thanks to Caitlin @ The YA Bookworm Blogger and Karen @ Cheerful Book Reviews for tagging me!
And of course, big thanks to Delaney @ The Random Ranterer for starting this wonderful tag!
Hello! My name is Vivian (my Chinese name is another story ^_~) and I'm 16. A rather intimidated but strangely excited high-school-senior-to-be. Aside from consuming books as a life source, I play piano, like to go for long runs, and enjoy singing songs in Japanese and German (yes, specifically those two languages...) in my spare time.
#1: Reading - Would you rather read a classic book or a dictionary?
Oh, classic book for sure! I'm really big on classics, and since they're good for you, I try to always have one on my currently-reading shelf. (even though they take me so much longer to finish -wry smile-). I'm not Malcolm X so I think reading a dictionary would be very informative but (in British accent) awfully dull~
#2: Getting : Would you rather receive a $50 gift card to a bookshop or a library card?
This is actually hard...Toronto's library system is actually really quite good, but I've already got a library card anyway, so gift card all the way! Close family friends know that they can't go wrong with a sweet little Indigo & Chapters card any Christmas! XD
#3: Shopping : Would you rather look at books at a bookstore or a library?
Bookstore all the way!!! When in Indigo, I go into this sort of dazed-mode and float around as a fluffy Vivi-cloud of pure bliss. Heck, I'd be happy to move into a bookstore and live there!
#4: Sleeping : Would you rather stay up and see what happens in the book (and its a part where it's a must) or go to sleep?
I absolutely need my sleep, or else everything goes wrong for me: I break out, get in a bad mood, can't think properly, and the list goes on. That all happens if I don't sleep before 10:30-11:00. It really depends on the book, to be honest. Then again, for most books, I tend to just read along, finish it, then see that it's already 11:30 (which is REALLY late for me.....-blush-).
#5: Writing: Would you rather write on a laptop/computer or in a notebook/paper?
Good ol' pen and paper! Almost all my reviews are written in my Book Reviews Journal before I type them up. I find that I'm more thoughtful if I sit down with a pen. If you give me a keyboard, my pianist-fingers go off on their own and sometimes I end up with a too-convoluted review, or write a whole bunch of irrelevant stuff....
#6: Eating : Would you rather eat while you read or keep glancing at the bag of food while you read?
Water has to be there, first of all, haha! I don't tend to eat junk food while reading. If I do end up eating, probably it'd be fruit with a fork (so my fingers don't get the pages dirty), like I was reading "Fever" (by Lauren DeStefano) this afternoon while eating chunks of juicy, summer-y watermelon ^_^ (totally contrasted the depressing atmosphere of "Fever")
