Paperback or Hardcover?

Which do you prefer? I am neutral and have both. Lol. When ever I get a series though I tend to get them all in paperback or hardcover. I know... I'm a snob. :roll: :lol:

I think paperback is easier to handle, yet they get torn up easier. I hate it when my books have bends and rips. XD I really don't mind either kind, although I usually go for paperback. I guess I'm cheap. XD

Paperbacks cause you can usually find them cheaper. I agree though, for those books that you just can't wait to read, hardback is perfectly fine.

I love the way a nice hardback reads, but if I can't find a used copy, I opt for the paper. Never for the e-version.

I can go either way.
Paperbacks travel better, but hardcovers are more durable.

Hi I like paperbacks as I have pain in my hands and find the weight of hardbacks makes it worse o this doen't stop me reading hardbacks if I really really can't wait for the paperback to come out!

Yep, paperbacks definitely. With the amount of books I've been buying recently, I have to take the cheap route :oops: :D

I agree, but there is just something majestic about hard backs.

Paperbacks for me! I take books everywhere and the hardcovers are too clunky.

I like Paperbacks when borrowing from library. It is lighter to put in backpack and read during commute.

I read a lot of my books lying in bed and a hard back in that position is so much more difficult to handle!
