      I have actually switched to using my macbook to read when I’m lying down, don’t have to hold it or anything and just rest a finger on the arrow key and then pages. Incredibly comfy and you can easily sip a cuppa or eat a snack since your hands are free.

      Same. Anyone who says otherwise is literally a luddite hoarder.

      If I read something repeatedly, or as reference, or it has important illustrations, I'll buy a hardcover copy. Paperbacks are as disposable as toilet paper; they should be given away to other readers when finished.

    Paperback for textbooks, hardcover for everything else.

    Hardcovers are generally higher quality and will last longer but they're a b***h to read from.
    Paperbacks are easier to read from.

    If cost wasn't an issue there wouldn't be any paperbacks.

    I prefer hardcovers if possible but I care more about overall translation quality or paper quality so I end up buying some paperbacks.
    1 out of 3 books I buy are paperback the rest are hardcovers.
    Still if I find a reasonable priced edtion of some paperback I have I would probably buy it and sell back the paperback.

    My eyes really start to hurt these days when reading so I usually prefer an ebook because I can crank the font size. Trying to read that tiny print in books is so hard, I bought +1.25 reading glasses to help and it does work, but I don’t want my eyes to get used to being lazy like that.

    I love paperbacks due to their portability. I carry a backpack a lot of times when traveling long distances, and so being able to throw a paperback in the bottom without worrying whether it will get damaged is really convenient. I feel much closer (literally I mean) to the book due to their smaller sizes as well. Its a bit like reading an article on your desktop vs, your phone. Come might prefer the desktop for the size of it, but seeing I'm trying to read a lot of words in one go, its typically easier to read on a smaller screen. Maybe I just have bad eyesight.

    Paperbacks and E-Books

    I have immense nostalgia for mass market paperbacks. I grew up on low quality printings of public domain works, mainly the Barnes & Noble Classics collection. The paper was slick and spongy, like some variety of polished paper towel. I love old yellowed printings of sci-fi and fantasy with that distinct smell. An author like Pynchon also seems fitting for this format.

    Both. Paperback for reading. Hardcover for collecting.

    I have a condition called hyperhydrosis which means my hands are always wet basically. I can't read books without getting the pages all wet and discolored, so I read with an ereader. can't complain because I get all my books for free and the battery lasts forever.

      I hate how my phone or iPad get so greasy on the back. At least paper absorbs it. That’s why I don’t like used books, 20 hours of someone’s oils absorbed into every book cover. That’s a ton of bodily fluid.

    I like both, but nothing better than a quality old-stock mass market paperback fantasy or sci-fi book. Ordered used hardback from Amazon I usually get library bindings which suck.

    Do people really find it more comfortable to read a paperback? I've always disliked them because I can't read them without being afraid of damaging them.

      I just bend the thing like crazy and wrap the thing almost in half depending on where I am in the book. I doubt I’ll read it 100 times in my life before it gets too beat up, or give it away most likely.

    Cheap hardcovers are horrible, I also hate dust covers and take them off when I'm reading.
