When it comes to books which type do you prefer the most, or are you into the whole digital thing?!

Personally I prefer Hardcover but I'll take paperback if there is no option!! I do like digital but that is easier to lose!

I have this weird ocd thing about books, hardcover or paperback, doesnt matter. As long as the pages smell good when i read i'm set.

I'm an enviro-freak but I could never buy a device to read off a screen with like the kindle or whatever. Old fashioned paper and bindings is the way i'm staying.

I'd take either one, but preferably a hardcover.

Either, but I'd prefer hardcover, if available.

I choose paperback as it just seems to fit easier in my hand when I'm reading however the cover then gets damaged often along with the spine so for that added durability hardcover would be preferred but they also cost a little more

I prefer hardcover. I think they're more aesthetically appealing, and also more durable. Paperbacks tend to get damaged really easily.

All. I have hardcover, paperbacks and I also have a Nook Tablet and I read all the choices. I still buy hardcovers and paperbacks and I use my Nook so I can carry a bunch of books with me wherever I go.

My tendencies to being anal can't take too many hardcover books T_T If book flaps get bent or are missing I am frustrated and go on a rampage.

And it's so much easier to move several boxes of softback than hardbacks xD

The only hardcover books I buy now are Dean Koontz and Janet Evanoich. $20-26 is a lot of money for one book. Everyone else I get ebook or wait for softback. I just can't wait 9 months for a softback release from them two.

Paperback when I can . . . they're cheaper!!!

Some of the stuff I read you can't get in paperback for years after it's published, if ever.

I like hardcovers, I don't mind them being heavier...they're prettier and more rugged.
I love it. I also like paperbacks though.
Anyway, its the content that counts. I don't like stupid books - nonsense ones.

I'm kind of on the fence with this one. I love hardcovers because they're great to hold but paperbacks are easier to hold and a lot more portable when you're running around.

I am slowly moving towards digital though because of the ability to have hundreds of books in one reader the size of a paperback.
