Reading books broadens our vision and knowledge on all matters. Nowadays, online sources like the internet books are available to read and enjoy books. Paperback books and hard back books are both optimal for reading. But they have their own pros and cons as well and knowing them in detail helps you in choosing the right books for your reading. Regarding the cost, paperback books are less expensive and are approximately 10-15 dollars lesser than the hard back ones. All books which are introduced into the market for the first time are usually released as hard back books and thus wanting to read a book fresh soon after its release can be achieved when you opt for hardback books. Also since paperback books have thick paper covers and not cardboards, they are of light weight and floppy and thus they become easy to carry wherever we go and fit in small storage bags easily.
When you want books which last for a long time and are highly durable, choose hard back books as paperback books may get damaged when used more and the glue present in the binding of these books may get dried up as well. While gifting books to your loved ones go for the hard back versions as they make your gift look attractive and the recipients of your gift will get to know the love which you have for them. Choose books which match the heights of the other books present in your book shelf. By doing so, you make your shelf look great and neat.
If you are reading a hard back book which is a part of a series, and you wish to read the other parts of the series as well, try sticking to the nature of the book you have read as storing these books in your book shelf makes it look uniform and consistent. If you love reading books laying them flat on your table or lap, use hard back books as paperback versions develop wrinkles when you try to place them flat. If you are concerned about the look and the design of your book covers, choose books which are appealing to you.
Usually hard back books have attractive covers or at least they have appealing designs on their jackets under their covers. If you wish to publish your own books, release them with hard back covers as they reach a higher number of audience and will be recognized easily by various book critics and news bloggers who review books and rate them accordingly. These writers have a common perception that the hard back books are fair literary works than the paperback ones. Also you can always consider releasing your literary works online, which reach a greater number of online readers and pave ways to print publishing as well.
Audio books are also available where the chapters of the books will be narrated by a recorded voice. These versions enable multi tasking. While driving or doing daily chores, you can listen to these books and experience it.
