Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm (formerly Should Be Reading).
Do you prefer Hardcover, Trade Paperback, or Mass Market Paperback? Why?
I love hardcovers, but they’re so expensive these days that I really only purchase them if it’s to add to a collection. As an example, I have all the Outlander books in their hardcover editions, and I’ll continue to buy them until the series ends.
For everyday reading I prefer trade paperbacks over mass market because I like the bigger size (feel free to insert any and all dirty thoughts that just entered your mind) 😉
Actually, part of it has to do with my crappy eyesight. The trade paperbacks usually seem to have bigger text so it’s easier for me to read. It feels close to hardback size, yet it’s a bit more bendy, less rigid. It still fits in my handbag, so it’s easy to tote with me. Lastly, the artwork is better, and since I do love a good cover, it’s more visually pleasing than what fits on the mass paperback.
What about you? What do you prefer and why?
