Paperbacks. They're far cheaper and they don't consume as much space as a hardback does.

I will get hardbacks though if it's part of a book series that I'm really engrossed in.

I prefer hardcover over paper back as you do but if there's no availability then I'd go paperback but I'd never go e-book it feels weird reading online for some reason for me.

Probably hardbacks but I generally end buying paperbacks because of the cost. I can't stand digital books though despite their advantages.

i like paperbacks!

and i agree w/ kuro im not a fan of digital books at all. theres so much excitement you miss and suspense while you turn the page of a book instead of just simply clicking.

Hardbacks are good for throwing at people and last longer, but paperbacks are lighter. So both have advantages/disadvantages. For carrying around, I prefer paperbacks, for keeping at home on my bedside table, hardbacks.

I would prefer hardback, but they are like $10 more. I don't mind paperback though.

I almost always aim for hard cover books, it's kind of an obsession now. Like I just recently bought the same books I've already owned just so I could have them all be hardcover books. Then again they weren't too expensive (only like $12) a book so I don't feel too bad doing it. Now if that was like $30 I'd have just walked off with my paperback using it as a fan after I finish it.

Paperback is easier to carry around and swap with people. Easiest to transport is e-books but I'm not handing over my phone or laptop just so someone can read one book in my personal e-library.

Only thing I like about hardcover over paperback Is the cover of the book don't bend at all like paperback. Paperback ftw though.

I prefer hardcovers. Not sure why, though. Guess it feel more 'professional' I guess? Not sure how to word it.
