Interesting to note that e-book isn’t included here. 🙂
If I’m collecting a book as part of a series or one that I might get signed, I generally prefer hardcover is available. If I’m purchasing, I prefer mass market paperback because they’re more priced lower and it’s easier to take a large collection of them to my local used bookstore to trade in.
If I’m checking out from the library, I don’t really have a preference in most cases.
The one caveat I will put on it is when it comes to thicker books (like the longer tomes from Stephen King or George R.R. Martin) I prefer the e-book. The last couple of 800+ pages books I read were heavy and could be unwieldy for the first quarter and the last quarter of the book.
And with that statement, I am off to get my early bird special at the Picadilly….
