Booking Through Thursday
All other things being equal–do you prefer used books? Or new books? (The physical speciman, that is, not the title.) Does your preference differentiate between a standard kind of used book, and a pristine, leather-bound copy?
I always prefer a hardcover to a paperback, and one that's in good condition - preferably with large type. I like how hardcovers will stay open on their own accord instead of struggling to crease the spine of a paperback. They don't have to be brand new, just as long as they're not too beat up.
