Okay, everyone. Jennifer got me thinking about something, which we all know can be a dangerous thing. Everyone must have a preferred medium of book.
Some people may love reading a hardcover book, crisp binding crackling with every page turn. Others love mountains of paperback books, light and easy to pack away on trips. How about the audiobooks, bringing drama and life to every word? Or what about the easily accessible e-books, like those from Project Gutenberg?
Personally, if I add a book to my personal library or give a book as a gift, I want hardcover. If I'm in the car, I enjoy listening to an audiobook CD, as long as it is entertaining. I'll read any form of book I can get, but sometimes have a problem with paperback books. Apparently, I'm unable to properly take care of a paperback book--the pages and book cover taunt me, edges curling, pages loosen--general untidiness on parade.
So, what book form do you prefer?
