Tag, you're it!

This is my first time ever being "tagged" on the blog. The tagger is my friend Kimberly from The Windy Pages. Since I am not very good at asking for things, I am not going to tag anyone specifically on this. However, if you read this and would like to participate, please consider yourselves tagged. Now, onto the questions!

1. How did you get into blogging?
My good friend Alethea who runs Read Now Sleep Later, was a long time Borders employee and introduced me to the world of book blogging. Before getting to know Alethea, I had no idea book blogs even existed. She asked me to contribute a few reviews and it just went from there. 

2. What fictional character would you most want to be best friends with?
Ooh that's a really tough one. I really like Charley Davidson from First Grave on The Left by Darynda Jones and Mercy Thompson from the Patricia Briggs series. Both are badass women with a great sense of humor. I think we'd get into a lot of trouble together and it'd be a lot of fun. 

3. What fictional world would you like to visit for one day? As character or as yourself?
Pretty sure everyone says Harry Potter for this question and that's because Harry Potter is AWESOME. 

4. How do you buy the majority of your books? Indie book store? Larger chain or Internet retailers?
I'll buy books pretty wherever I can. I used to go to Border a lot (R.I.P.) but now I go to B&N when I can. I also frequent my local indie bookstores (Vromans, Once Upon A Time, used bookstores). I also buy ebooks from Amazon and order from Book Depository. Even Target and the grocery store. 

5. Do you buy a book based on its cover?
Yes, definitely. I am an extremely visual person and I have bought books based on cover alone. That said, I won't not read a book if I don't like the cover. If I like the author I will still read it or if it has an interesting premise or if a friend recommends it. But a good cover goes a long way to catching my eye and I have bought many books based on cover.

6. What does your TBR pile look like?
I don't have one TBR pile per se. My TBR books are mingled with my read books in my bookshelves. At this point I am sure my unread books outnumber my read books as I tend to give books away. Yeah, the TBR pile is pretty much the entire living room. i have been thinking about getting a small bookshelf for my bedroom to keep my tbr books in but it hasn't happened yet.

*editing to add pictures*

part of my urban fantasy/romance shelf. i've read about half of the books in here.

this is my hutch/tv cabinet. it used to be empty but then i started putting books into it and now it's almost full. 

7. eReader vs. Physical book. What do you own and Which do you prefer?
I have a Kindle, which I love but I still own and buy a crazy amount of physical books. In a perfect world I would have my own giant library for all of my books, but I don't. I love the ease of having taking my Kindle with my when I travel and I love that I can download a book at any time of night. It's saved me many times when I have finished a book with cliffhanger ending. In the end, I believe that anything that encourages people to read is a good thing.

8. Coffee or tea?
Um, both? I love coffee with lots of cream and sugar but I also love a good cup of tea. I also love sweet tea, which I would drink all the time if it wasn't so bad for me.

9. What was the last book you bought?
Phyical book: River Marked by Patricia Briggs 
Ebook: Taking A Shot by Jaci Burton

10. Most of the time, do you read the book first, or watch the movie/tv show first?
I almost always try to read the book first if possible. An exception was the Swedish version of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo which only had a limited run at the time and I really wanted to see it in theaters. And I still haven't read the book. It's one of my goals for this year.
