So…how do you prefer yours?
Do you prefer the way hardcovers stay open in your lap?
Do you like the lightweight portability of mass-market paperbacks?
Pet the covers?
Line up all the books on your shelf perfectly evenly?
And while we’re on the subject, how do you read?
Do you break the spine of your paperbacks, to make them stay open? Or do you prefer a near-pristine book?
If you’re in the pristine book category, have you ever read a library copy of a book you already own, so you could keep your own copy undamaged? 😉 (I confess that I have!)
And do you like to eat while you read?
Drink tea? Coffee? Hot chocolate?
Lie in a hammock? Relax by the fire? Sit on a sunny park bench?
All answers welcome!
