Paperback or Hardcover?

Do you prefer paperback or hardcover?

Personally, I prefer hardcover. If I’m in a store and the paperback and hardcover version of a book is out I will automatically go to the paperback only because it is cheaper. I do have a friend though that will automatically buy hardcover because she loves hardcover. I would too, if I had the money. I know people that prefer paperback over hardcover, too. Either way, both have their own pros and cons.

Yeah, paperbacks might be cheaper but they aren’t as indestructible. I am the one who hands out my books to my friends. I have an issue with people damaging books so I’m glad a lot of my books are hardcover. Paperbacks are easier to bend, but they are lighter. Hardcover books are harder to damage, but they are heavier and more expensive.

I think it’s nice to have a variety of both, but in the end it comes down to your preference. So tell me, do you prefer paperback or hardcover?!

  1. I’m so glad to see someone else ponder this question. I love the feel of a book in my hand, especially a hardcover. I wasn’t sure if I would like a Kindle because I was afraid of losing the “book feel”. Turns out I like my Kindle more than I thought I would but there is still nothing like the feel of an actual hardcover book in your hands!
