I rather prefer hardcover, but too me it all depends on the price... as weird as that sounds, so I mainly buy paperback.

I levitate more towards hardcover, but if that isn't available I'm always happy to go for paperback.

I prefer hardcover since it looks nicer on the shelf, but since it's quite pricey most of the time I just get paper back and also get E-books at times.

I prefer hardcover but rarely ever buy them due to the huge price difference, ive snatched a few on sale really cheap though :3

I also like a lot the poket paperback versions, really cheap and easy to carry around and read on the way home/school/work, just last month i read 5 books while commuting only.

ill take digital books when i cant find physical copies or the price difference is considerable unless its a saga and i really want to collect all volumes.

Probably used paperback, being cheaper. Though sometimes used hardcover can be pretty cheap too. If price wasn't an issue, I would perhaps still go with paperback though it can be annoying if a book falls apart, especially if it's a really good one that I might reread. I don't have a tablet as yet, but I do read a little bit on the Internet. The important thing is that I'm reading... somewhere in between the anime and other cartoons.

Paper-back.. but I'm so clumsy with my.possessions that I have to buy a hard-back before I step on the book and half of it comes off the spine..

If it's of good quality, hardcover! However, paperback is nice too, easier for me to read being lighter and places in my hands nicely.

Depends. If the text is one I will constantly consult and quote I prefer paperback. If it is a collector article: hardcover.

Example:

A grammar is always best as a peperback:



If I like very much an author like Machado de Assis, surely I would prefer something like this:



The authors picture, for those who doesn't know who he is:

Depends on which kind of books we're talking about. For English literature I would like them in hardcover if possible, but will go paperback if there's no choice. For Japanese/Chinese stuffs I'm more used to them being paperback, with or without a dust jacket. Oh will do digital as much as possible too. I'm running out of room to store books in my room, so I only buy physical if I absolutely want to keep a copy of it in physical format, or if it's artbook sized and a tablet doesn't do it justice.
