I like hardcovers but if they aren't available then I'll take paperbacks.

I like hardcover books better but either one is fine. As long as it is a physical book I'm good, I hate reading e-books it just isn't the same experience.

Hardcover.

Paperbacks are stupid and damage easily.

I like hardcover. They hold up better. And they look nicer on your shelf.

I prefer paperback for it's portability. But I also like digital because I can load up many many books for reading, especially when traveling or kicking back while on vacation or just sheer laziness. (I put copies of my digital stuff in other places (dropbox, flashdrives, etc.) so I don't lose those very often.

For leisure reading, I prefer paperback. It's usually cheaper and easier to carry around. Plus, it's awkward holding hardback ones. I don't know why, kinda hard to explain. If we are talking textbooks, then paperbacks fall apart too easily. I'd take the hardback for textbooks, unless it's a book that I'll never use again, then I prefer electronic.

Paperbakcs are lighter to carry about.

I could crack off a sexual joke but I'm not going to. I prefer paperback books to hardcover due to convenience but for very thick textbooks I'd rather have it in hardcover form.

Hardcover!!!!

I think it's worth the extra bucks. It lasts longer and when they're on a bookshelf, they don't tip over or bend the cover.

Hardcover.

I tend to respond with extreme austerity when it comes to books and novels I own... Even with myself. I detest when I'm turning pages, or another and the page gets bent up and odd... unfortunately, I have to learn that it can't really be helped sometimes.

Same with the cover of it... Sometimes, depending on how it's turned or rested wherever, the cover of it will be pretty crooked and ah, I really hate that. I find much more solace when I don't have to worry about it bending, and thus... In my opinion, hardbacks are certainly the more preferable. It gives me less to worry about.

I prefer paperback. What they lack in durability, they make up for in handling. It's also much more convenient to carry around, and, of course, they're cheaper.

Hardcover. I hate bending book covers! I pre-crease my manga covers oh-so-gently (they're usually paperback, of course)

I have a few hundred eBooks buts I prefer paperbacks any day. I like being able to flip the pages by bending the spine. Hardbacks, you have to crease the pages almost. Annoying. And digital books are... unnerving I guess. Don't know why, though. Nothing beats a good, physical book.

Generally doesnt matter, certain ones I prefer one over the other. I think there are several things to take in factor, all in all depends on the book.

Definitely hardback-it just feels so much more luxurious and takes the pleasure of reading to a higher level-like you're actually reading a literary work instead of a reference manual.My next choice is the oversized paperback.I don't read much manga,but I tend to like the online reading as the left to right format is difficult enough-one page directly in front of you is easier for me.
