What’s Your Reading Style?

book-bindings-bookcase-books-1329571In a previous blog post, we talked about whether or not readers judge books based by their cover art.  But what about choosing books to read by the material that they are made out of?

Paperbacks, hardcovers, and e-readers.  They all are capable of delivering your favorite stories, but they are also all slightly different.  Paperbacks, both mass market and trade, are soft and easy to fit in bags and take with you on the go, while hardcovers are larger and more bulky.  E-readers, are great for travel but don’t have that “bookish” smell and feel.

So library readers, what’s your book format of choice?  

Mine is the traditional trade paperback.  It’s easy to hold, but not as small as the mass markets.  If I’m going on vacation, I’ll try to find a mass market copy to take with me.
