Like them all ways.....but prefer the Trade Paperback....It is a little larger with a bit bigger print...yet still not bad to carry along...(compared to hardcover)....Also hardcover for home, audio for in the car, regular paperpack if all else fails...lol...Would also LOVE a kindle....soon maybe...lol..Hugs, Ruth

I voted Audio as that is my current favorite because it just fits into my routine better. I also love to read on my Ereader.

I prefer mass market because they are easier for me to store at home. I rarely buy hardbacks because they're too expensive for me. Since I read a lot of non-fiction I might end up getting a hardback if I can find a good deal on Amazon. And I do have a lot of trade paperback size. But I prefer mass market.

i voted hardcover, but i'm not sure it counted my vote. i've been having computer issues.


the print usually is bigger in a hardcover and for me it's easier to hold.

I like reading hardcovers at work because they stay open without having to hold it after you hit a certain point, so I can keep my hands free.

To buy, I prefer paperbacks. However, I try to stick to hardcover books from the library. They are sturdier, and paperbacks from the library just seem to have a really tough life.

I voted it doesn't matter. I read anything in print and digital, too. I love the feel of a book in my hands, but I have read several over the computer, too. Whatever is handy. I told my DH if I should ever go blind, I expect audio books and to be signed up for a braille class. Just because I can't see doesn't mean I have to give up my books! (This of course, are just in case instructions. There isn't anything wrong with my eyes as long as I have my glasses.)
