  1. Great Questions - also easy. I usually prefer paperbacks because they (A) aren't as heavy and (B) usually fit better in my purse.

  3. I like hardbacks because then the books are more protected.

  5. Grrr I forgot to answer the question: I like hardcovers for protection and paperbacks for carrying around.

  6. I usually like reading hardcovers because they are harder to mess up, but it does get annoying having the cover on there so I usually just take it off until I'm done reading it. I'm very specific with the way I keep my books and I hate having to bend the cover on paperbacks because I feel terrible for doing so!

  8. I WANT TO READ SO MUCH!

    As for the question:

    I like hardcover so you don't gotta worry about bending the cover or the spine! Double deal right there.

  10. I like paperbacks because they weigh less and I move a lot (lame, I know). However, if I really love a book I will buy a hardcover because they hold up for longer!

    I loved reading this book! It was so fun!

  11. Paperback - they're not as bulky and they're easier to handle.

  14. I prefer paperback as they are easy to carry when traveling to and from work by bus. But gee, I also like hardback as they are easier to handle when sitting around reading and they just hold up longer. So 60% paperback and 40% hardback.

  17. I still like the feel of opening up a new hardcover book. I always take off the dustjacket while reading, to keep it nice!

    Thanks for the entry!

  19. I like paperbacks better because I can fit more into my bag for family vacations, and because they are cheaper. I love the Suite Scarlett paperback cover as well!

  21. I like hardcovers better - they withstand wear better and as I read most of my books they just stay in nicer shape.

  22. I prefer paperbacks, for some reason I see hardcovers as more "precious" and I treat them very gingerly. I get the paperback first and if I really like it I'll get a hardcover. Weird, I know!

  24. I'm definetely a paperback girl. I love that I can take them anywhere. I never worry that they'll be torn or wet. Paperbooks just have a this-should-be-worn-out feel. A good book should always be a little frayed, because a good book should see a lot of love.
