All other things being equal, what is your favorite format for reading? Hardcover? Paperback? New book? Old book? Leather-bound first edition? E-book?

Although I can see the benefits of e-readers I just feel that you cannot beat an actual proper book to read instead. I do like old books but I also like new books. Sometimes old books just look, and feel, and smell so much better than a brand spanking new book and it is nice to think that this book has been read lots of different times by lots of different people and has been loved. You just don’t get that with an e-book, or a new book come to think about it.

  1. I feel the same, though old musty books tend to set off my allergies. We just lost an amazing antique bookstore here a few months ago and I really feel like something special is misisng in my life now. I do use my husband’s Kindle, but I prefer real books.
