BTT: Format

Booking through Thursday time again:

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?



All things being equal? Trade-size paperback. They still have the heft of a good hardback, without the weight of the hard covers. They seem to have better quality paper than the mass-market paperbacks, and don't have the jagged edges of the hardcovers. I hate those uneven edges - they look unfinished to me.

Trade paperbacks seem to be the #1 choice.

I never thought about the trade-size paperbacks!

I played too!

You're right about the edges of hardcovers. I hadn't given that much though before. And they leave dents in your leg if you rest the book there . . .

Me too! Those trade size paperbacks win any time!
