Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursdayand a different question is posted every week. Hardcovers or paperbacks? I love books. Both have their pros and cons. I love how sturdy a hardcover is. But when the book is bigger- it can be heavy to lift and carry around. While paperbacks are lighter- I hate that the spines crack and generally can become quite beat up. I think the book collector in me leans towards hardbacks.
