Bout of Books challenge: Bookish Would You Rather

This is going to be impossibly hard, but I do enjoy those would-you-rathers (:

Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?

I could survive dog-eared pages, but I could not stand my book smelling like Cheetos, so I would rather lend books to someone who dog-ears pages.

Would you rather:
Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice?

As fun as meeting authors might be, I would much rather meet one of my favorite characters: Jamie or Claire Fraser or Hermione Granger or Harry Potter 🙂

Would you rather:
Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again?

Definitely never be allowed in a library again. I used to go to my local library a lot a few years ago, but since I moved to a different country I haven’t been once. I do live in book stores, though.

Would you rather:
Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book?

This is just cruel. Can I just choose to kill off one of my favorite characters after he or she has lived a loooooooong and happy life with their other half? I would be perfectly fine with that.

Would you rather:
Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life?

I quite enjoyed Twilight, to be honest. I thing this series got me into reading. I haven’t yet read The Scarlet Letter, though. I think I’d be okay with both, but I choose Twilight.
