I personally like all of them for different reasons. I prefer to use paperbacks for everyday reading, but I like to get a copy of my favorite books in the hardback. Sometimes it just depends on the book, in the bookstore one or the other will speak to me, I would say I’m 70/30 (paperback/hardback) roughly.  I will say one of my many quirks is that if I start a series with a hard/paperback, I have to finish them all the same! As far as e-books, they are convenient now and then, but I don’t think I will ever fully convert. I think that audiobooks are great for car-rides!

  1. I am very much the same way! If I start a series as an audiobook, I have to finish it that way. Though I adore paperbacks and even my ereader, I can listen to my audiobook collection while taking long coffee and relax drives in the country.

  2. Recently I’ve found my self. The curious being that I’ve never known has become a prominent one that I can rely on for adventure. I used to O stain from reading because I found the act dull and futile but now that I’ve picked it up as a habit, I’ve enjoyed it. The way books can give people different emotions. The way you can see yourself in a certain novel excites me, almost as much as watching a great film. I now enjoy dipping my finger in the creative juices that flow beneath the surface, I can nurture them to grow into a magnificent proposition. I can now take a step forward. I used to be so timid but I’m somewhat free now.

  3. I don’t care if it’s hardback or paper. Whatever I can get my hands on. I do enjoy buying my favorites or classics in hardback though. I prefer a physical copy of books but I download free ebooks every week. I just like to read. I’m not a fan of audio books because I have a hard time focusing and will fall asleep

  4. I love paperbacks because they feel so much better, and softer, in my hands. They’re more flexible. I can hold them more easily. Though eBooks are so much easier to read in bed. Don’t need a light and I don’t have to worry about waking my partner. Basically, as long as it’s reading, it’s all good.

  5. I definitely prefer paperbacks for everyday reading and I usually buy the paperback edition when it’s a book I’m not suuuper excited about/looking forward to. When it’s a book in a series or by an author I love, I get the hardcover edition. But the thing you said with starting and ending a series in the same format, I’m completely the same!

  6. I prefer ebooks nowadays because those I can read even when the kids are asleep around me, which is really the only time I have some time to read 🙂 Also, I can get my hands on a newly ordered book in seconds, as opposed to days or weeks, depending on where it comes from.

    Of course, I buy physical books for the children, and occasionally for myself, too. Mainly when it isn’t available in ebook format. I have a nice collection of paperbacks and hardbacks already 🙂 I need more shelves now!
