Kind of personal interview ¿?

Well, I've seen this in several blogs so I've decided to post it so you can know a little more about me.

Hardback, trade paperback or mass market paperback?
I like Hardback better (I find my book more protected) but recently I'm buying more paperbacks because of the price.
Barnes & Noble or Borders?
Since I'm from Spain all I can say is NO ANSWER!
Bookmark or dog-ear?
Bookmark, definitely. I just can't stand bending the pages, I want my books in perfect state.
Amazon or brick-and-mortar?
Amazon.
Alphabetize by author, or alphabetize by title, or random?
Random. Sometimes by subject or covers.
Keep, throw away, or sell?
Keep. I'm not capable of throwing or selling my books, I feel like something is missing. I always think "What if I want to re-read it someday?".
Keep dust jacket or toss it?
Keep. It's nice.
Read with dust jacket or remove it?
Remove it. I don't want it to get bend or something.
Short story or novel?
Novel.
Harry Potter or Lemony Snicket?
I've only read Harry Potter and I've enjoy it, so this is my choice.
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?
At chapter breaks but sometimes, when I'm really tired, I just fall asleep.
“It was a dark and stormy night” or “Once upon a time”?
It was a dark and stormy night. Mystery forever!!!!
Buy or borrow?
I like buying the books. I like to have them so I can re-read them whenever I want or check some information or sentence I like of it.
Buying choice: book reviews, recommendations, or browse?
Well, a little bit of all. If someones recommens my a book and I like the what it is about, I'll may read it, but since I'm the one who reads books from the outside that aren't realeased here I can't rely in this.
For picking a book I read the summary first and if I'm not sure about it I read the amazing reviews all of you write in your blogs.
Tidy ending or cliffhanger?
Tidy ending but with a little suspense if it is a series.
Morning reading, afternoon reading, or nighttime reading?
Whenever I can.
Stand-alone or series?
I've always liked series more because I love to know well the characters and all the story.
Favorite series?
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
Favorite children’s book?
The Tinger Team by Thomas Brezina. I started to like reading because of this series when I was around 9-10 years old and the school gave to everyone in tha class a book of this series to read during the summer. I didn't read it since I didn't like reading (or I hadn't try it) but I remember that a day of the next summer I was very bored and I started reading the book. And now here I am, still buying and reading this books that are from 9 years old onwards.
Favorite YA book?
Twilight.
Favorite book of which nobody else has heard?
Don't really know.
Favorite books read last year?
Twilight XD
Favorite books of all time?
Twilight (too many "Twilights" here but I really love it).
What are you reading right now?
Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
What are you reading next?
Love is Hell by Melissa Marr, Scott Westerfeld, Justine Larbalestier, Gabrielle Zevin and Laurie Faria Stolarz.
Favorite book to recommend to an 11-year-old?

The Tinger Team by Thomas Brezina
Favorite book to re-read?

Don't know, just what I feel like reading at that moment. I could re-read any of my favourites books.
Do you ever smell books?
Always!!!
Do you ever read primary source documents like letters or diaries?
When I need it for class.

If you've post it in your blog let me know and I'll pass by.


Ah, one last thing. Today we have to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to:

Yeah, I think that's Venice^^ I'm thinking to do some post talking about spain, about the bookstores I buy from and stuff like that, but It'll take me a while cause I've just started classes again now so I'm a bit busy.
