Do you buy hardcover or paperback books?
I’ve gotten to where I almost only buy hardcover. And sometimes, I can find a nice leather bound version for nearly the same price.

I buy almost all digital now. If I have to go with a physical copy, I'll buy whatever is cheapest

re: Do you buy hardcover or paperback books?
If its something I know i will probably re-read a few to, i get hardback if I can find a reasonable used price (abebooks.com is my go to). Sometimes I look and a book has harback and paperback for similar used prices so I get hardback at that time as well.


If I'm pretty confident I am not going to want to read the books multiple times, I usually try to either get it at the library or listen to it for free.

I prefer hardback. I'll only buy paperback when the book wasn't printed in hardback, but I rarely buy a book right when released. I wait until the price comes down and buy mostly used in good condition.

I buy both. I find lots of hardcover books on sale at Barnes & Noble. And some authors, I pre-purchase, so those are typically hard cover. I also buy paperbacks if I find one I like.

Pretty much only hardcover.

I also look around for special editions of books that I really like. I particularly like Folio Society editions.

Hardcover. You can usually buy hardcover in "like new" condition at Thriftbooks for under $5. I only buy paperback if I can't get in hardcover. Occasionally I'll pay full price for a new book....if I can't wait.

I love paperback. Especially mass market . Fits the hands better - I had to buy rhythm of war hardcover though.
