When it came to illustrated, I was thinking about graphic novels. I enjoyed reading your answers.

Great answers! The name of my blog is "Well-Mannered Frivolity" - can you guess what my answer to number 1 was? It was hard to choose between some of the answers this week though...

Lenore said...

Yeah, I can't answer these without going into whole paragraphs...

I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices! Many of the answers can go either way.

I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.

I really have to wonder about the "illustrated" question. Is it referencing graphic novels and comic books, or referencing books that include sketches or pictures? Odd phrasing either way...
