Hardback or paperback?
Paper. They are easier to carry and burn later when required.
Amazon or brick and mortar?
Bricks of course. I don’t have a credit card (activated that is)
Barnes & Noble or Borders?
Don’t know what are those.
Bookmark or dog-ear?
I usually stop on a page divisible by 5. LoL.
Alphabetize by author, alphabetize by title or random?
Keep, throw away, or sell?
Keep unless burned.
Keep dust jacket or toss it?
I toss it later.
Read with dust jacket or remove it?
Depends on how sweaty I get.
Short story or novel?
Used to be novels but now I have a short attention span.
Collection (by same author) or anthology (by different authors)?
Harry Potter or Lemony Snicket?
Lord of the Rings.
Stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?
‘It was a dark and stormy night’ or ‘Once upon a time’
Neither. I like it if it starts with an event. “And he tumbled down the stairs squirting blood all over the neighbor’s door”
Buy or Borrow?

Buying choice: book reviews, recommendation or browse?
Title and last page.
Tidy ending or cliffhanger?
A tidy cliffhanger.
Morning reading, afternoon reading or nighttime reading?
Anytime I can afford.
