Saw this one Gail Carringer's LJ and it sounded interesting.

What was the last sf/f/h book you finished reading?

The Masked Empire by Patrick Weekes

What was the last sf/f/h book you did not finish reading?

It's been awhile since I didn't finish a book. Best guess is whatever volume of the Spice & Wolf light novels that I got stuck on, back when I was still reviewing manga and stuff.

What was the last sf/f/h book you read that you liked but most people didn’t?

Uh ... Eclipse? Which lots of people obviously like, just not most of the people I associate with. I thought it was fun, though I think New Moon is the best books so far, because it has the least Edward and the most Jacob. Go Team Jacob.

What was the last sf/f/h book you read that you disliked?

Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K Le Guin. I think a lot of sci-fi doesn't age well and this one, while a classic, just didn't do much for me.

How long do your 1-sitting reading sessions usually last?

Usually half an hour, because I typically do most of my reading at bedtime and that's about how long I can last before my eyes start dropping.

What are you currently reading?

To Marry an English Lord by Gail MacColl and Carol McD. Wallace.

Do you like it so far?

Yes, I love it. I didn't know much about this period of history (the so-called "Gilded Age" in the late 1800s, when American heiresses started marrying into the English aristocracy in droves) and I love learning all the stories.

How long ago did you buy the book you are currently reading?

My mother bought it for me for Christmas.

What was the last physical sf/f/h book you bought?

The Masked Empire, with a gift card I got for Christmas.

What is the sf/f/h sub-genre you like to read the most?

Definitely fantasy. I would like to read more sci-fi and horror but there's just SO MANY THINGS to read out there.

What is the sf/f/h sub-genre you dislike the most and why?

Probably sci-fi, just because it's the one I've had the least experience with when it comes to prose fiction, and I find it's easy for it to come across as a bit cold.

What is your favorite electronic reading device?

I do love my Kobo.

What was the last sf/f/h eBook you bought?

I honestly don't know. I've picked up a lot of free books recently and I think some of them were genre but yeah, without the physical book it's harder for me to remember each one before I've read it.

Do you read books exclusively in 1 format (physical/electronic)?

No, though I like physical books better.

Do you read eBooks exclusively on a single device?

Yes, I don't like reading from a lit screen if I can help it.
