    Depends on far more factors than price and storage space. PB are easier to carry around, esp when travelling. HC are longer lasting. If I expect a book to get read more than a couple of times, I’m likely to buy the HC. Might also buy a PB so that I have a lighter version or for lending. Also, this NOT being a perfect world, I often buy the HC since I don’t want to wait until the PB version is published!

  27. Trade-sized paperbacks. ~ They’re the perfect size ~ The type is not too small nor too large; the dimensions of the book make it easy to carry in a purse, backpack, briefcase, etc. without taking up too much space. They’re always my first choice when buying books.
