BTT: Images, Images.

I’m sorry for not posting here for the past few days, been terribly busy with other things, like my 30 days challenge in my personal blog, and work and well…work. I’ve still been reading, though, but going through Shades of Grey really slowly.

Yeah, work.

How do you feel about illustrations in your books? Graphs? Photos? Sketches?

I’m starting to get into some graphic novels, although honestly, it has too much of a comic-book feeling that I don’t feel it’s a real book. But I don’t really mind illustrations in a book. I used to like seeing illustrations in Sweet Valley Kids (haha, I know), and I thought the illustrations in Jasper Fforde’s books are fun to look at. Another book that has funky illustrations is Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz, with the rabbit and the astronaut and all. I can’t remember what exactly, because I lost my copy of that book.

So…it’s pretty so-so for me. It doesn’t really change my views on what I read, but I agree that it breaks the monotony of just seeing text. :)

    Here’s my answer.

  3. I have never read a graphic novel and I do not care for comics. I really prefer my books to be non-illustrated. My BTT:
