BTT: Format

Pin It


Booking Through Thursday

All other things (like price and storage space) being equal, given a choice in a perfect world, would you rather have paperbacks in your library? Or hardcovers? And why?

Hmm. I don't think I have a preference. I could squeeze more books in with paperbacks, but space doesn't count for this question. Paperbacks are easy to carry around, especially in a purse. Hardcovers look so pretty though. Hardcovers. I'm going with that. Form not function today.

  1. I have the same thoughts. I'm sure most of us have the same answers anyway! ;P

  2. Hardcovers for durability and the way it looks on the shelf, but on the other hand I do like the feel of some of the paperback covers. Something about the way I can bend it back without damaging the spine...just feels nice, but maybe I'm weird like that. It's easier to curl up with one of those for me.

  3. I like hardback covers more than paperback ones. They are just prettier.

  4. My library has a mix of both and I've found that I grab for the paperbacks because they're easier to handle. But, they get very, very grubby.

  5. I chose hardcovers too although I still like my paperbacks... and my many stacks of said paperbacks!

  7. I had to go with function over form for this one. Well...almost.

  8. I never knew about the signature website, I'm definitely checking that one out!

    Etsy can be extremely addicting!

  9. I have mostly hardbacks but I don't really have a preference. Happy BTT.

  10. Hardcovers certainly have the advantage of looking great on a shelf. Not to mention they are much sturdier than their paperback cousins.
