Would You Rather? Book Edition

The wife is hosting a Blogger Book Drive with a few of her blogging friends to help support literacy for kids. This week, they are featuring a fun Would You Rather? theme and the wife asked me to get involved. So, here are my answers for Would you rather? Book Edition!  You can read her answers and find out more information here.

Would you rather be stranded on an island or lost in outer space?Stranded on an island - I could survive on an island and potentially get off and have a chance at rescue. In space, you're just gone. And if there's a rupture in the hull of your ship you're dead/frozen/in the dark/alone. Not exactly what I would call a nice vacation. LOL

Would you rather fall in love or go on an adventure?
I would rather go on an adventure but that is a double edged question because as we have proven so far love creates an adventure.

Would you rather read a comic book or a magazine?
Comic book, I don’t care what some dumb ass writer thinks they know about the opposite sex, and aside from the advertisements that is all a magazine is, with the exception of a very few.

Would you rather read inside or outside?
Outside - the sunlight and sounds and feelings around me make it easier to put myself into the world I'm reading about.

Would you rather be the main character experiencing all of the conflict or a side character watching all of the conflict?
Main character, extras normally die in the kinds of books I read... come to think of it, a lot of the main characters die too but they go down in a blaze of glory.

Would you rather read a book written in first person or third person?
Third, I don’t care what they think - I want to know what they do.

Would you rather have a book suggested to you or judge a book by its cover (front and back)?
Suggested - if the book is suggested, it insinuates that the suggester is or has read the book and thinks that the suggestee will like it. Unless they don’t like each other and that makes one or both of them an ass hole.

Would you rather be the princess or the hero in a fairy tale?
Princess. (Was that really a question you ask a dude?) Why would any guy want to be the victim? Unless the princess is a total bad ass that calls lightning from the skies and brings the gods to bow down before them, I wouldn’t undergo the sex change. Just not worth it.

Would you rather read a novel or a short story?
The answer is both. I like reading short stories for the convenience of them. However, there is something to be said about the level of attachment and character development that comes along with a novel or better series that I tend to read. They allow you to truly connect with the characters as if they were your friends or worst enemies.

Would you rather read the book or watch the movie first?
Watch the movie first because if you read the book and then watch the movie you are typically disappointed in the movie.

What would be your answers to these questions? We'd love to see them!
