OMG! I can’t believe it’s Thursday already. That’s the beauty of a Monday holiday – the week just flies by!
This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
All other things (like price and storage space) being equal, given a choice in a perfect world, would you rather have paperbacks in your library? Or hardcovers? And why?
It appears after much thought that I will need two libraries, or better yet, one magic library. Here’s why: I prefer paperbacks to read but hardcovers to look at. Have you tried to read a really thick hardcover, such as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows? It makes my arms/hands hurt. Perhaps I’m a wimp, but I don’t like that. I prefer the lighter and more flexible paperbacks; I can bend the cover, wear in the book…there’s something slightly more interactive (for lack of a better word) about paperbacks.
But if I had my druthers, my library would be hardbacks. They’re nicer to look at. And I don’t mind reading them.
So how about a magic library? Where the book becomes a paperback for reading and a hardback for display?
What do you think? I’m sure you’ve answered this question on your own blog, but I’d really love it if you left a note here…I’ll come visit you, I promise!
