I was tagged by Shanu from Scribbles on a Screen to do the Would You Rather book tag. So, here it is!
WOULD YOU RATHER…
1. Have unlimited money for e-books or a $5,000 Barnes and Noble gift card?
Even though I have a Barnes & Noble membership and most hardcovers are about $10.00 online, I feel like unless you’re very anti e-book, it doesn’t make sense to go for the B&N gift card. With unlimited money for e-books, all I think of is all the money I’d be saving for when I do want to buy a physical copy. I’d basically be able to own any book I’ve ever wanted whether e-book or physical copy.
Winner: Unlimited money for e-books
2. Meet any deceased poet or J.K. Rowling?
I’m not a huge Harry Potter fan. In fact, I’ve only read 2 of them. While it might be cool to meet someone who’s written one of the most popular stories ever written, I think it would be interesting to meet someone from a totally different century: Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oscar Wilde, or William Freaking Shakespeare.
Winner: Meet any deceased poet
3. Write the world’s most famous book or visit the world of your favorite book for one day?
This seems a bit unfair. One benefits you for a day while the other benefits you for a lifetime. What are the stipulations for writing the world’s most famous book? Can I write it anonymously so I don’t become famous off of it but still make tons of money? If that’s the case, then I’m into it, but if it’s not, then I’d rather visit the world of my favorite book for a day because how awesome would it be to visit Middle Earth!?
Winner: It’s a tie, depending on the circumstances, but since I have to choose, I’m going to give it to my dream version of writing the world’s most famous book.
4. Choose __ or __ ? (Insert characters from your favorite fictional love triangle)
Katniss with Peeta or Gale – I feel like this triangle sparks actual arguments but I’m going to throw it in here anyways because I am Team Gale.
Bella with Edward or Jacob – The OG love triangle? Maybe? So why not bring back this old school and terribly written one. I used to be all Team Edward until I realized just how damn creepy he is (ah, young naive me). So now I am Team Jacob.
Alina with Mal or The Darkling – Mal was just so bland and I hated every time he was in the story, so I am Team The Darkling.
I honestly cannot think of another love triangle. Sure, there have been some in books I’ve read, but I can’t actually remember the names or circumstances surrounding them. Oops.
5. Experience Hogwarts in a very realistic and accurate virtual reality or travel around the world for a year at no cost?
Again, I’m not a huge Harry Potter fan so I feel like this is a no brainer. How can I even compare a virtual reality with actual reality to see real castles, the Coliseum, the Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge, the Great Wall of China, the pyramids, and all the other wonderful things on this planet. I really cannot equate the two.
Winner: Travel around the world for a year at no cost
I tag whoever wants to do this!
What would be your answers to these questions?
