  • I like hardcovers on my bookshelf, but I usually prefer handling the paperbacks. Usually when I read, I am curled up in bed and paperbacks are less bulky and awkward for that purpose.

  • I'd much rather hold a paperback. Hardbacks are for books I couldn't wait for, or reference books.

  • Paperback. Hardback are too uncomfortable to hold.

  • paperback for books I'm not likely to read again (Ie: trashy novels), hardcover for books with topics or authors I really enjoy and will likely read again--and because they look nicer in our library. :o)

  • I generally prefer paperback, because they're cheaper and easier to hold while reading. Hardcover if it's a reference book or part of a collection though.
