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?
This is actually tough for me to answer because both have their place. I think public libraries should probably carry hardbacks simply because they are more durable and those particular books have a high-level of use.
My own personal preference for reading is actually mass-market paperback because of their size. I really prefer reading a smaller book and owning a smaller book... more room on my limited shelf space, easier to pop into a purse or bag. Maybe the compromise would be to make a mass-market paperback sized hardback!
Or, since price is no object, and the world is perfect, therefore I have unlimited space: one of each format!!
Now, the daily Blatant Self-Promotion:
My tour stop today is: The Long and the Short of It Romance Reviews -- I'm in the author spotlight talking about what I love and hate about writing. And I'm giving away a free download of any of my stories, including but not limited to, "One Love For Liv". Come on by!
My daily contest is here.
So, Dakota wins the prize for weirdest dog. Yes, she's cute:
But the fact remains ... she's strange. I took her for a walk on Monday, garbage day for my neighborhood, and she decided that she was terrified of garbage cans. Absolutely flipped out when we got near them. OUR garbage can was okay (despite the fact that it looks pretty much just like everyone else's garbage cans), but walking past the neighbor's? Heck, no.
So, Monday, we spent quality time with the neighbor's garbage cans. We stood by them. We tapped them with our feet to make a weird noise. We even picked up an empty one and walked with it for a while. I can only imagine what my neighbors must have thought if there were watching Dakota and I out their windows.
On the other hand, she has NO fear of the vacuum cleaner and will not get out of my way. I can even bump her with it and she just stands there, staring.
Of course the blow dryer gives her nightmares. The blow dryer is some horrible fiend that eats puppies. So is the electric razor, unless it's turned off. Then it's just exactly the right size to carry around the house in your mouth.
Ah, the joys of puppy ownership.
I got another nice review on the MBaM site for "One Love For Liv" -- the person (who I don't know, and didn't pay *G*) said, in part (click here for all the reviews at MBaM):
What a fun book! ... Everything just flowed together so nicely I really liked reading it.
Gosh... ((blushes))... they like me, they really like me.
Still waiting to see what Mrs. Giggles has to say, though.

The downside of green: It can promote jealousy in yourself or others
The consequences of more green in your life:
