Feature and Follow [3]

Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.
           
 Q: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc?


 Personally I don't really have a preference. Usually I go for paperbacks because they're cheaper, but if I find a hardback for a good deal I will pick it up. However, since I got my ereader, I usually only purchase physical copy books if I already read and absolutely loved it, if I know I'm really going to enjoy it, or if it's a continuation of a series with books I already own. I read ebooks if they're in sale, usually $3.99 or less, or if it's a book I'm not sure I will like or not.

To sum up what I said, pretty much it depends on the price of the book.

  1. I guess price is the make or break.

  2. I like both formats. But you are right, eBooks are usually cheaper than paperbacks.

  3. Yep, e-books always have such good prices! Especially when they are on sale for 3.99 or less :) (But then I just buy a whole bunch of the sale e-books!) Thanks for stopping by, I am following back!

    1. Definitely agree with buying a ton of cheap ebooks! Kind of a down fall there, but with the deals, how can you not!!

  4. I love cheaper ebooks, and when they go on sale! I don't really have a preference either, but price is always a factor in my decision process, too!

  5. Hopping through. I prefer hardcovers but I'm cheap, so I won't buy a hardcover unless I'm sure I'll like the book.

  6. Right you are! The price of the book does matter. Hardcovers look nice on the shelf but paperbacks and e-books are way too easy.

    1. Exactly! I usually get hardback if I know I'm absolutely going to love them. Or if it's a book I've been dying to read and it's only in hardback!
      Thanks for following. I'm following back via GFC :) Congrats on passing 500!!

  8. Happy Friday! I prefer reading paperbacks. I love the feel of real pages in my hand. I read eBooks sometimes, though. I think they're always faster to finish and you can easily highlight the passages you like.

    1. I love that about the ereaders. If I need to look up a word, all I got to do is highlight it. So much easier :)

  9. Price definitely influences my book-buying habits, which is why I find myself buying more ebooks these days.

    1. I purchased a bunch of physical copy books during June, but most of the time I go for ebooks because of the price!

  10. price also influences my book habits. usually i buy books that are $3 or less at a used book store, but then if i find a free ebook that sounds good, ill download that. I don't think I've ever paid for an ebook before.

  12. I choose the PB too. They're cheaper and more convenient. Althugh If I had the choice, I'd change them all to hard covers.

  13. I try to take advantage of every book deal I can find (well, only if I actually want the book), so I often times buy ebooks that are really inexpensive.

  17. Price does make a difference! My rule for ebooks is typically 2.99 or less. Unless I really want the book and can't afford the hardback. That is rare though.

  20. I just put this philosophy into action and saved $10! Bought the ebook for $0.99 instead of the print for $11.19 and I didn't regret it. Occasionally I impulse buy a hardcover though to treat myself! :) Thanks for stopping by my FF, I'm following back.

    1. Great thinking. I've definitely been through the impulse buy. However buying a hardcover as a treat for yourself is absolutely necessary :)
