Does anyone have a specific preference to hardcover or paperback?Does anyone have a specific preference to hardcover or paperback? Tonya #questionnaire
I like hardcover but I will read anything
I prefer paperback, doesn’t hurt as much if you drop it on your face ?
paperback for me. they are cheaper, bendable and lighter in my already heavy bag lol
If it’s a bigger/thicker book, I like hardcover. I used to be paperback only (cheaper, usually easier to hold), but sometimes a hardcover just looks and feels nicer
I agree 100%
Paperback is my favourite. I can see why hard back is nice to own, they look wonderful on a bookcase too but holding a paperback just feels homely and comfortable.
I love my paperbacks. But I have broken down and got hardbacks if I really cant wait for paper. Usually it’s the box sets I fall for.
Hardcovers are my true love but paperbacks are still beautiful
I prefer paperbacks, they’re more practical.
Depends on the book. If I am reading a ‘thick’ one as I go to bed, paperback- I have a tendency to drop the book on my face! ?
I like paperbacks
Hardbacks for series and my favorite authors, ones I know will stay on the bookshelves. Paperbacks- I prefer the large ones the small ones are too hard on my old eyes!
Hardback all the way if i can!
Paperbacks, they’re easier to hold with my arthritis
Space is an issue for me and has been for some time; the same could be said for money. So I opt for paperbacks, though on some occasions I will purchase HCs.
paperback – cheaper, easier and lighter to carry
Paperback for sure
Paperback. They’re lighter, less expensive, take up less room, and I don’t feel as big a need to be careful with them. I see why hardcovers and ebooks have their qualities, too.
Paperback and online books
Paperback. It’s easier to carry a few with me to work or wherever. However there are some books that I like in hard back like special editions or full collections from Edgar Allen Poe and such.
I prefer paperbacks. Better for reading in bed.
Usually paperback, unless it’s a series I love. I just have to have those in hardback. ?
Paperback. Unless it’s a big book. I have a softcover of the complete LotR and it’s not very sturdy lol. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books are also pretty big so I have them in hardcovers. Same with the later HP books.
Since all I read is now on the Nook app, I always preferred hardback prior to this new format.
Depends on how much I love the book. I’ll sell the paper back or give away to someone I know will enjoy it if I plan to purchase the hardcover
Hardcover, but alot of mysteries and horror are only in p
Hardcover whenever available.
Paperback, all the way. Hardcover feels all fancy and pretentious, whereas I can be myself with paperback. That sounds weird, I know, but I like it when my books are worn in and homey, written in and dog-eared. I like them to look loved, read and reread.
Doesn’t matter to me as long as it is a book
It depends on where I’m going sometimes. I keep a paperback for my bags on the go, and leave my special hardbacks at home. Only problem is my old classic novels are mostly paperback and I try to keep them in good condition like a sacred token.
Hardcover gets less damage or bending in my hand bag.
Hardcover for my keeper books..those best friends that I give homes on my bookshelf♥
I buy mostly hardcover and prefer to read in that format most of the time. But there are a select few books that I have bought specifically in paperback on purpose because I wanted them in paperback and am very glad that I have them in paperback. So…it depends. But 94% of the time I would prefer to have the hardcover.
Which ever is free or cheapest at the time.
nah enjoy everything phyisic, digital etc i see the ebooks like an extension, as much i can read i feel comfortable no matter what
My Kindle is my preferred reading method. If not that, I need a paperback. Hardcovers are too heavy for me
Depends on the circumstance.
Paperbacks for convenience, hardbacks for the collection, digital for guilty pleasure reads ?
Both. I love hardcovers when it comes to taking pictures, but I read paperbacks because they are easier to use and less heavy.
hardbacks … seems like the older I get, the smaller the print in paperbacks 🙂
For favorite authors Hardback-other wise paperback or kindle.
If I’m buying a book from a small house publisher I’ll usually get the hardback. If I’m buying any other “to keep” book I’ll get the paperback. But most fiction I buy the digital version for my Kindle.
