As long as it has the text, I am fine with whatever format a "book" is in.

I like either or, really. They both have their advantages and disadvantages.

I don't have a strict preference in this matter, but I usually go for paperbacks since it's cheaper.

Paperbacks are cheaper so that's a perk. But hardcovers last a lot longer. Paperbacks are sometimes easier to read, but hardcovers look really nice on my shelf. Hmm, I'll go with both!

I like digital the most because they take up no space.

Paperback all the way! It just feels so much more comfortable. Hardbacks are too big and bulky, plus I really like being able to bend the book, though I know some people hate bending pages and covers lol

Also, I doubt I'll ever get into ebooks. There's just no comparison to curling up on the couch with a real, paper book in your hands. Turning the pages and new book smell; I love it! I know ebooks are convenient, but I really have no desire to go down that road.

I will normally read a book on digital format first if I can get it. Or if it is from the library I do not care what format it is in. lately I have only been buying books that I already know I like (the same goes for manga and anime). When I do buy books I prefer a high quality hardcover whenever I can get it. They are worth the investment and hold up better over the years. I will only get a soft cover when there is no other choice, and if it is very cheaply bound I may not even bother when digital is available because some soft cover books feel like they are printed on toilet paper, way too cheap and the pages rip when you turn them no mater how careful you are.

I like hardcover better but tend to buy paperback cause it's cheaper. But I am very OCD about having a set either completely hardcover or completely paperback. I like the idea of not having to carry or have a ton of books with the invention of the digital books but i still much prefer the feel of holding a book.

It depends. I have texture issues, so some hardcovers feel like sand paper, I cringe, and if some papercovers are too smooth, I cringe. Over all, I do prefer hardcovers.
