All other things (like price and storage space) being equal, given a choice in a perfect world, would you rather have paperbacks in your library? Or hardcovers? And why?

For fiction it has to be paperbacks, easy to read in bed and easy to slip in your bag. For reference books you can't beat a nice hardcover, there is something reassuring about a hardcover. I just feel the information in there is going to worth knowing!


  1. I don't mind paperback or hardback. I think AFF was the first 'I prefer hardbacks' person I encountered (tr blogs). I take more care of hardbacks though for sure.

  2. Now there's an interesting thought - do we actually take more notice of the content if it comes packaged as a hardback? I'm going to need to think about that.

  3. Mumof4 - yes I take more care of the hardbacks too I guess because I paid more for them
    Tabletalk - I'm not sure why I do but I do maybe it's just the heft of the book!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour :D
