I want hardcover if the book is a classic (or just has sentimental value for me) and I'm going to hold on to it for a long time. Otherwise, I'm ambivalent; whatever I can get for the best price.

I prefer paperback but if I want to show off that I own it (like a collectible of sorts) then I'd want hardback, also because if I want to keep it for a long time hardback is better. But paperback is cheaper and easier to read from (at least to me it is).

Hardcover if possible. Paperback may be cheaper, but I want it to last longer.

I have both hardbound and paperback copies in my collections. Most of the hardbound works have been by Mercedes Lackey, but I have a personalized copy of "The White Dragon" by Anne McCaffrey I picked up nearly 40 years ago (yes, it's THAT old). A few of the Mercedes Lackey novels are also personalized (since I'm friends with her and Larry Dixon, her husband) as well as appearing in one of their novels as Tal Rufen.

I kid you not.

As for the paperbacks, I have a wide range of novels, some which date back to the 1960's... Ace novels, Ballantine's "Adult Fantasy" series, Lin Carter and Andre Norton... Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke, Hal Clement, and many others.
