Follow Friday #155

This Weeks Follow Friday Question:
What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, Ebooks, Paperback, etc.,?
 
My preferred reading format would first be audio books. I am completely obsessed with them. I just love that I can read and do other stuff at the same time, like crochet! My second favorite would be hardcover, because they are just so much more neater, more durable, and I love taking off the jacket and seeing if anything fancy is on the actual cover. Third would be ebooks. They are so portable and I can bring hundreds of books with me wherever I go, plus I can read in the dark =D, and last would be paperback only because they fall apart much easier. I hate when the cover bends while reading and then when you set it down it stays propped open. I'm a little OCD lmao. 

What is your preferred format? Also don't forget that GFC will be going away July 1st (supposedly) so make sure to follow via Feedly, Bloglovin, Email, or Linky!!

For the list to add your name and follow others go to Parajunkee's and Alison Can Read's Follow Friday post =]

  5. Not too big on audio books. Tried listening to one of my mom's once for a Dexter book and I didn't care for it. I guess because I like reading at my own pace and knowing what I'm reading!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  9. See, my younger brother loves Audio books, but I've never tried them. I guess I like reading as it occupies me, whereas I don't know if I'd get that same experience with audiobooks?

  10. I prefer hardcovers because I get so annoyed when a paperback comes in the mail dented. Even the smallest dent bothers me so much and I love how hardcovers are harder to damage. Old follower :)

  13. I'm not sure how I would adapt to listening to audio books, I dont think that I'd be able to keep my attention on it. Whereas when I'm reading a physical copy of a book I devote myself to it :') New GFC Follower!

  14. At work I sometimes like to listen to audio books although only books I have already read and want to reread because I have a bad habit of zoning out and missing chunks of the book. I pay more attention when I am actually reading :) But they do make my shift go by quicker!

  15. I would like to try and audio book, but I work part-time and have a two minute commute. LOL Plus I read so dang fast that 8-10 hrs of audio spells at least 3 reads for me..

  16. Yea, sometimes I completely zone out and have to rewind to figure out what I missed lol. Thanks for the follows!!

  17. I have to admit, when I first started listening, I wasn't a big fan - I found myself not paying attention and thinking out other things sometimes. BUT, the more I listened, the more I am enjoying it! I have to drive the same trip in two weeks with my boyfriend, so we're going to get The Lord of the Rings

  25. Yea, sometimes I get distracted while listening to audio books sometimes. It's definitely a different reading experience and something you gotta kind of get used to. Thanks for following!!

  26. I completely get what you're saying. I usually listen to audio books for books that I am unsure if I will like or not, that way I can multitask and won't feel like I wasted my time by reading it if I end up not liking it. Thanks for stopping by!

  27. I completely agree! I cannot stand it when my books get damaged. Thanks for stopping by!!

  29. Completely understand. I usually save my audio book choices for those that I'm not sure if I will like or not so I don't feel like I wasted my time reading if I end up not liking it. But when there is a book I know I love, I buy a physical copy. Thanks for following!!
