Hi! Sorry this is a day late but This or That is back! Up this week is ………
Hardcover vs paperback
For most of you, this is probably an extremely simple question right? Not for me!
For the most part I don’t really mind either BUT if I had it my way, all paperbacks would be small. You know, like 3.5 by 5.5 inches (I say inches because America doesn’t use the metric system for some reason that I don’t understand). So if that were in centimeters I believe it would be somewhere around 8.89 by 13.97cm (at least that’s what Google says)
Although I do like hardcovers too, I don’t like for them to be too big either. Not in pages but it length. The Harry Potter series is a good comparison so I wouldn’t want a book bigger than a hardcover Harry Potter…weird I know… but it makes sense in my head 🙂
Also, (in honor of the fact that I started school yesterday) let me just say that I HATE paperback textbooks!!! They’re way too big and super flimsy. I have little hands, I like little books! I have one textbook for my sociology class that is paperback but its smaller than usual textbooks so I think I can manage.
So if I HAD to choose I would say paperback but only if they are small!
Which do you prefer? Paperback or hardcover?
