An easy question for today:
All other things (like price and storage space) being equal, given a choice in a perfect world, would you rather have paperbacks in your library? Or hardcovers? And why?
I think most of us would rather have hardbacks, if we had the choice. Especially of the books we love dearly. They just last longer and look nicer.
That said, though, I find paperbacks much easier to read in bed. And since that is where more than 50% of my reading is done, maybe my answer is not so cut and dried after all.
It probably helps with my attachment/detachment issues to own paperbacks. Hardbacks are much harder for me to pass on to others. So, I'd say God has been good in allowing me to have mostly paperback editions!
