  1. I like hardcovers because they usually stay open better than paperbacks. Wish they weren't so much more expensive, though. And I really need escape, too. Lots of it!

  2. Difficult to decide one or the other in many of the questions - with most of them I like both.
    Loved the car pic, by the way :-)

  3. Great answers! The name of my blog is "Well-Mannered Frivolity" - can you guess what my answer to number 1 was? It was hard to choose between some of the answers this week though...

  4. I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices!

    I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.

  5. You answered each question! I love long, long books.
