Book Snob Book Tag

I saw this book tab at Bookables Youtube channel. I believe the original creator is Tia and All the Books. I just wanted to do a fun tag today and I had this one on deck.

Do you always read the book before watching the movie? I try to. It's not too hard since I read a lot of books, but don't watch a lot of movies. If I don't really ever plan to read the book, I might watch the movie (i.e. To All the Boys I've Loved Before). I have found that sometimes watching the movie makes the book make more sense (i.e. Master and Commander).

If you had to choose one format to read for the rest of your life, which would you choose: physical books, ebooks, or audiobooks? Physical books. I love the smell and the feel of a physical book.

Would you marry a non-reader? Not knowingly. I have actually done just that, though. He's not against reading, he just doesn't do it very often. On the other hand, he is a pretty voracious book buyer. He means to read these things one day, he just never does. It's fine. It can be my super power.

You have to ditch one genre - never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose? Westerns. They usually make me feel hot, gritty, and dusty. No thanks.

You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose? Probably fantasy. This one is much harder than which genre to discard. I actually like a lot of genres.

What genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the Bookish community? Probably romance, although it's getting more clout. There are people who still dismiss YA. I mean, it's one thing to not be interested in a genre. But YA isn't a genre, it's an intended audience. All genres are represented within YA. But if you think any genre is worthless, or that people who read it are dumb, you're wrong.

Have you ever been snubbed for something you were reading, or for reading in general? I may have been laughed at for defending Twilight, but not to my face, since that wouldn't end well. If people actually make fun of me for reading or what I read, I don't know about it.

That's the tag. Do you have any interesting answers to these questions? I'd love to hear them!
