YES, yes they do.
For a second I thought you were going to say you hate Neil Gaiman. I would have had to punch straight through someone's forehead.
Which is why I buy hardcovers
Lovely book they picked. I always took care of my paper backed books and never tore them up like that. Hell I wouldn't even break the spines.
I've always wondered how people did to travel with paperback books on their bags without making them like that,no matter how much I try,my school books always end up like this.
Well if you don't take care of them yeah.
Paperbacks are amazing. I take really good care of my books, and they last forever. However, if I see a paperback that has been worn out, especially on the spine, it tells me that book is well-loved and has been read many times. It's also time to buy a new copy.
on thin books, like comic books, paperback is awesome. on thick books hardcover is always better
I love paperbacks, even though I don't treat them well I really like being able to take them along with me. Far easier to recycle, too.
Well, I like them because I take good care of them. It's all in the way you treat things. Comics are paperback too & I treat them very well just like any other book.
Only on thick books, paperback is okay with thin books
Paperbacks are easier and more comfortable to read depending on size of the book though and they're cheaper. If you want it to last longer in good shape, you could always cover it with clear contact paper.
Correction: Paperbacks suck on thick books. They aren't as bad on thinner books.
They are a lot cheaper though
Depends on the book and how you treat it, but I'd agree that hardbacks are usually better.
Nah, cheaper and lighter book sounds good to me.
I hate paperbacks...
Terry Pratchett. One of my friends was recommending that I read his Discworld series. He said it was similar to Hitchhiker's Guide.
if that old book f-er sells that for 10 bucks, the middle finger most likely spring up shout "wtf!"
And this is why I do not like renting most of my textbooks.
