Musing Mondays (Oct.18, 2010)
Do you prefer hardcovers, trade paperbacks (the bigger ones), or mass market paperbacks (the smaller ones)? Why?
To be honest it really doesn't made to much difference to me. However, if I have to choose, I like the hardcover books because the print is usually larger than the smaller books, and as I get a year older each year, the eyes get older also, so the larger print is much easier on the eyes.
Nevertheless, I like the small paperback books because they are less expensive, and easier to carry with me when I'm on the go.
In spite of all of that, the trade paperbacks are my favorite because they just feel right when I'm reading them, the print is a bit larger, and no dust-jacket to deal with like the hardcovers, I sometimes take the dust-jacket off while I read the hardcover books, especially if it becomes a nuisance. I like them for the looks, but, hate them when I'm reading.
How about you, which do you prefer?
