Digital is nice (nook <3).
However, between hardcover and paperback, I'd choose paperback. While hardcover is prettier to look it, it is far less flexible and therefore less comfortable to use. That's my opinion, though. I know others will disagree.

Hardcover. I bring books with me almost anywhere I travel, who knows when some down time or boredom will strike. Paperbacks tend to get quite beat up in this kind of situation.

I also hate when a book falls or something and the corners get all crazy beat up.

I hate digital books.

Between hardcover and paperback, I choose both. I have at least 2 copies of each of my novels. The hardback one I will treat with care and read in safe places like my house, hotels etc. The paperback one is the one that I take on the bus/train, read in the bath etc or when somebody asks to borrow a novel.

Digital is what I prefer. Everything is centralized into one device and it's self-illuminating so there's no need for a lamp.

But to answer the question, I'd prefer paperback. It's much much more easier to handle from my experience.

I don't really buy many hard cover books simply because most books I read I can only find as paper back.

It doesn't matter. The text could be on a rock for all I care.

I like the look of a hardcover book, but I like the pliability of a paperback.

I did a non-credible study that proved hardcover readers are more often into hardcore porn where as softcover readers were into softcore porn... but I was my only test subject so I had to scrap the project.

Now I'm working on the correlation between CR Members and Peter Pan syndrome. The data is looking quite promising.
