Elaine Leather bound.

Lostshadows Paperbacks are cheaper, so I can afford more of them. Other than that, I don't generally care.


message 3: by Amy (new)

Amy I vote for e-books. Sure, there's no feeling of paper and such, but I can carry so many books in a such small device.


message 4: by Nihcki (new)

Nihcki Paperbacks, that I put my own covers on (purchased from Amazon to conceal "racy" covers, as well as to ensure people mind their own business) are easiest to put in my purse. I go nowhere without a book!

Hardbacks are for beloved novels I intend to keep until I die.

Ebooks are good for vacations, free books, multiple books of a series, privacy when reading. But, batteries die too fast for me, so the Kindle (or whatever device it may be) requires it's cord and an outlet for longer usage.

Paperbacks and HCs with plastic jackets are annoying for me, and they always rip off, defeating the purpose.

So, I like all except the last option, but voted for paperbacks as they are definitely my favorite. Easily portable, readable during a power outage, by candlelight or flashlight / battery-powered booklight.
