Format – Booking through Thursday

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?

That’s a hard one really because hardcovers last forever, generally are easier for me to read (due to large font); however they are awkward to hold especially for small handed people like me! Paperbacks are easy to store, easy to hold, but they don’t keep as long, not as protected from the elements and other stuff like hardbacks and the font is generally smaller. Best of both worlds are trade paperbacks, which I buy a lot more now. After thinking about this one and if the storage and price were the same I’d go with hardbacks.

Speaking of books, I’m finding that a lot of the books I want to purchase the font size seems to have gotten smaller or my vision has gotten worse. I don’t think it’s the later nether does my ophthalmologist. His Tallest has been trying to get me to try look into getting a ebook reader because I would be able to enlarge the font, with new technology it allows you to read it in direct sunlight also there would be no glare issues and there is the possibility that I can put it in reverse contrast (white writing, black background). Reverse contrast is great for people in general and super frackin’ fantastic for those with low vision because it causes less eye strain and it’s easier to see! If you or someone you know has one I’d love to here from you in the comments with some pro and cons or whatever in general you want to share about ebooks and ebook readers.
