A Hardcover book is far superior to a paperback book

@FlotatiousTurd A Hardcover book is far superior to a paperback book

I feel hardback is better than paperback for the fact it feels studier, generally easily to put on bookshelves, and the cover tends to stay looking nice without getting those creases from basic use. It's also harder to damage a hardcover book in general. That's just me though.

I actually love paperbacks for the fact that they do end up looking worn so I can tell that I have read it and if it's really creased then I know I loved it and read it many times. I prefer my books not looking perfect. And I think it's cozier to read a paperback then hardback.

E-Books aren't inferior to physical books (It shouldn't matter how people are reading so long as they are, in fact, reading), but I don't like your analogy because, if anything, paperbacks are inferior to hardbacks due to durability and other, less important reasons.

Okay, fair enough. I don't have a preference between paperback and hardcover, and didn't realize so many people did.

Hardcovers just last so much longer, and they're so satisfyingly heavy. Oh, and they smell wonderful, much more wonderful than paperbacks.

I personally like paperbacks better because they're more casual and therefore more comfortable. But it's a very slight preference, books are books.

although, and most of you will probably agree, hardcovers are annoying because they do not bend with the pages, meaning they are more uncomfortable to read

I usually just take the sleeve off and place it next to me until I'm done with that reason session.
