Booking Through Thursday on Friday

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 rarely purchase fiction books anymore. I use the library lots. So for a library book I prefer hard back as those tend to be in better shape than the paper backs. Although I love a good book, I enjoy audio books too.

I do purchase reference books especially if it has to do with my fiber addiction: crocheting, knitting, spinning etc. Those I like something that stays open more easily but can take some wear an tear too. So usually a heavy duty paper back. Hardback pattern books get heavy in my project bag.


  1. If price weren't an issue, I think I'd like hardcovers best. I love the solidity :)

  2. I can see that about pattern books getting heavy in your project bag. I used to crochet a lot too (but this was about a decade and a half ago!), so I understand what you're talking about. I actually have quite a few crochet books myself. My sister-in-law loves to knit. I've never tried it myself. It seems you're really into "anything fiber" - do you have a particular favorite kind of project? Just wondering.
