Booking Through Thursday: It's Personal

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme, hosted by btt2, about (mostly) books and reading.

Question for the week:
Do you have a preference between “person” in the books you read? Do you prefer third-person to first-person? Or don’t you care? And … why??

I'm indecisive about this one. Always have been, if you would've asked me years ago, I would have said I preferred first person, and generally I used to steer away from third person. Now, I kind of prefer third person, since you do get more of a perspective on everything than you would with first person. I guess you get to understand a character better that way, at least, I do. Saying that, I do connect more with characters in first person since they have more of a "voice"...see? Indecisive.

Unlike before, I read both.

Now, switching from first and third and multiple perspectives in one book, is a whole different issue.
