They‘re heavy, bulky and impractical when you‘re on the move, but my #preferredformat is definitely hardback!

I'm eternally grateful for always living in a place with a nice public library because FREE from my local library is my #preferredformat for books. I do have books overflowing on shelves at home, but 75% of books read for me are sourced from my local library, whether a physical book, ebook, or audiobook, I love them all. 😍 The picture is from the YA room at my library.

ljuliel Good for you. I‘m going to try depending more on my library too. I need to make this my goal for the coming year. 2mo
Addison_Reads @ljuliel I used to think I had to buy every book I wanted to read. Now I try to donate the money I save by reading books from the library to independent bookstores or independent publishers. 2mo
ljuliel Good idea. We don‘t have many bookstores of any kind in our local area, so maybe a donation to our library ? I‘m sure they can always use the funds . 2mo

marleed I love to access my library. I‘m succeeding at a goal to read one book from my physical shelves for every 2 lib books loaned. @ljuliel this week I was purchasing some used books from the library and found out the Friends of the Library donate back over $100k annually from their book sales. That makes me love thrifting from my library book sales even more - and it‘s tax-free! 2mo
ljuliel @marleed wow 😮. I had no idea they‘d make that much from their book sales. I hues I never thought to ask. That‘s great that they are able to help that much. 2mo
OriginalCyn620 ❤️❤️❤️ 2mo
Addison_Reads @marleed @ljuliel Donating back to the library is a great idea too. A few years ago I worried about local libraries possibly getting shut down since people didn't seem to be supporting them as much. However, in the past year I've seen so much active at public libraries and it makes me happy. Growing up had it not been for the library, I wouldn't have had access to books, so I'm a huge supporter. 2mo

I don't have a prefered format. I love books in any form. I love the weight and feel of physical books and being able to see something tangible on my shelves. I love audiobooks when cleaning, cooking and doing other tasks. Books on my ereader are my go to for late night reading and travel. Thankful I don't have to choose.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 📚🙌🏻💗 2mo
veritysalter I‘m with you there - each has a place, allowing us to enjoy fabulous stories, memoirs and information throughout our lives, whatever the circumstances. Plus if it wasn‘t for audiobooks, my house would be filthy!!! (edited) 2mo
ljuliel Agreed. We‘re very lucky we live in a time where reading material is available in so many forms and we can choose what‘s best for each of us as the times change. 📖 🎧 📲 2mo
OriginalCyn620 Isn‘t it great that we have choices?! ❤️❤️❤️ 2mo

#GratefulReads - Day Twenty-Seven - #PreferredFormat I love to read, my kindle is great for nighttime reading and travel, I love audiobooks, so that I can get other things done; but physical books will always be my favourite. The main thing I have loved about Litsy, over the plethora of FB book groups, is that no one cares how you‘ve encountered a story or information, we just love to read.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Exactly!!! Very well said ❤️❤️ 2mo
ljuliel Agreed. I like that no one argues about whether you use a Kindle, tablet, headphones or book. We all like to read .. That‘s what matters. 2mo
OriginalCyn620 Agreed! 🙌🏻 2mo
Billypar This is the only reading community I've been an active part of, so I think I'm a little naive when it comes to what it's like elsewhere. But given the level of negativity on the rest of the internet, I guess I'm not surprised that people would waste time arguing over something so silly. Glad we found this bookish corner! 2mo

Just started this beauty! ✨

I go through phases, but right now ebook is my preferred format. I get so much more read and I can always pick up where I left off on my phone when I‘m out and about.

Ladyval05 I love my Kindle! The size is so much more comfortable to hold than a physical book. And I‘m like you with being able to pick up the story on my phone. 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Good point!!! 👍🏻🙌🏻📚 2mo
Linsy @Ladyval05 Diddo!! Holding it is so much easier and I can have a free hand to help my babies, which is a bonus! 2mo

#gratefulreads all my shelves are super messy just now and will be getting an overhaul and serious re-sort during Christmas break.... But they leave no doubt about my #preferredformat....Although I find Kindle super useful and love a #99ponkindle bargain, for sheer book bliss it's physical book, ideally paperback, all the way 📖❤️

@OriginalCyn620 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I totally agree!! 📚💗 2mo

My #preferredformat is physical books. There‘s just something about the weight of one in your hands and turning the pages! But between hardbacks and paperbacks, I have to give a slight edge to paperbacks. They tend to fit better in purses and though hardbacks look better on shelves, the dust jackets get in my way when I‘m reading-I have to take them off!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I agree!! Beautiful shelf!!! 📚💗 2mo
nu-bibliophile I completely understand about having the "weight of one on your hands" ? 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm I prefer paperbacks over hardbacks too but not the small ‘mass media‘ or international‘ editions...their prints are too small! 2mo
