This is a topic I wanted to ask my followers’ opinion. I thought it was a vast majority of readers preferring hardback to paperback books, but I’ve seen some post and reviews where a lot of people mention they are partial to paperbacks. Go figure. Personally I LOVE LOVE LOVE hardbacks! I know they are more expensive, but I like them so much more. Granted, there are always pros and cons to both, although in theory hardback is the better option. In reality however, there are many things you have to keep in mind when puchasing books. Here are some pros and cons of each.
- Easy to carry
- Damage more easily
- Plain Cover
- Taking longer to be released
- More wear resistant
- Pretty dust cover (on some)
- More detailed cover (embossed, metallic, etc.)
- Available as soon as the book is released
- Take up a lot of space
Just a short list of pros and cons. Let me know what you think and prefer. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
