you know what *really* pisses me off??? when the laminated cover of a trade paperback or paperback textbook CURLS UP and simply will do nothing but curl up. *grrrr*

that is often one drawback of a cheaply made trade paperback.

that said, hardbacks don't bother me nearly as much as they seem to bother other people. golly.

I enjoy hardbacks, and they're very good for some things, like extremely well-loved books and ones you want to make sure are around for a long time, etc.

What bugs me, for reading purposes and hauling-to-work-to-read-it purposes, are the Really Huge Books in hardback, because they truly do get unwieldy. Especially for portability. Mind you, I collect Stephen King in hardback, but that's because I'm a bit of a freak in that regard. One day when I have a gazillion dollars I will make sure to have all of his in nice hardback heirloom editions AND in trade paperback so I can haul the paperbacks around and not feel fraught with distress if I get a drop of juice on them.
