  • Doesn't matter. Both have their pluses and minuses which turn out equal at the end.

  • I love both, I feel like paperback books are easier to carry around but if you own it (not just borrowing it from the library) sometimes they can wear down quickly. But they're both great! Lol

  • Paperback is light and durable but wears quickly and ages quickly if not taken care of. Hardcover is built strong but is a pain to carry around. Lol especially in school with bookbags. My bookbag had like 7hardcover textbooks in it and it was a struggle changing books in locker and bringing them to classes.

  • I prefer both. When I did not have money to buy books , I preferred paperback. Now I can afford to buy books , so I go for hard cover as they are more durable. So choices are important. Even now , I see the price difference while buying books. And if the hard cover is more than 50% costly as compared to a paperback book , I don't buy it.

  • Well, a paperback is more easier to manipulate, and maneuver with the pages, but a Hard cover is pretty classic.. So, I like both..

  • Hardcover looks much better, but it costs more and takes up more shelf space, so I get paperback.

  • i love both, and they mingle rather happily on my bookshelves... but i prefer the feel of softcover books, because i'm less paranoid about ruining them (breaking their spines or losing the jacket).

  • I prefer hardcover. But a book in general will make me happy. I can't get down with these eReaders and stuff.

  • Both, hardcovers are nicer but paperbacks are great in a handbag.

    And I usually buy whichever is an older publication bc I like the covers better, plus it's more original to the time period.
