My choices:

1. Paperbacks OR Hardcovers?
For reading, I'd choose the comforts of a paperback.
For display/showing-off, hardbacks, baby.

2. Covers with Art OR Covers with People?
Covers with ART

3. Single POV OR Multiple POVs?
Multiple POVs as long as it's written well and do not confuse readers.

4. Femme Fetale OR Damsel in Distress?
It's 2019 already and I don't think damsels in distress still work. Women are strong and are capable of saving themselves. :tiphat:

5. About one character OR About a group?
One character

6. Coffee OR Tea?
TEA!

7. Reading in bed OR Couch?
COUCH!

8. Long OR Short Chapters?
Short chapters. Long ones bore me.

9. Famous OR Indie Authors?
I support both but I tend to read more books from famous ones.

10. Thick OR Thin Books?
Thick books are not that handy unless they are in e-book form. For convenience, I'd choose thin ones.

1. Paperbacks OR Hardcovers?

No real preference, though paperbacks are easier to hold.

2. Covers with Art OR Covers with People?

Art

3. Single POV OR Multiple POVs?

Usually single, but I love a good ensemble.

4. Femme Fetale OR Damsel in Distress?

Neither, really.

5. About one character OR About a group?

Same as #3

6. Coffee OR Tea?

Both.

7. Reading in bed OR Couch?

Both!

8. Long OR Short Chapters?

Depends on the writing/writer.

9. Famous OR Indie Authors?

I don't really have a preference. If I like their writing and the world they've created, I don't care how they published.

10. Thick OR Thin Books?

No preference.
Where you invest your love, you invest your life.
