usually paperback bc hardbacks are heavy and uncomfortable to transport/hold when reading I am also fine with kindle, sometimes you can get books for free or dirt cheap, then I read them there

I got a kindle yesterday and I find it a lot easier to read on, I admit I pirate books but I make sure to purchase any books I like and I have been doing that a short time now. Nothing beats the feeling of a propper book though KNOWLEDGE

true that also nothing wrong with pirating in that case imo. you can probably get the book you are pirating for free/for a very small sum at a library or borrow it from a friend anyway, so might as well do it this way. +1 respect for buying the books you enjoyed

Yeah I read the first part to atomic habits and why we sleep by Matthew Walker and I have enjoyed the beginnings of them for so I purchased the paperbacks about two days ago I am reading them on the kindle due to it being more accessible to me and I can keep the books mint but I am happy to Pirate knowing I have supported the author directly with a purchase

I am currently reading Atomic habits, how to win friends and why we sleep. I am not opposed to fiction I just never read it in years, the last fiction book I read what an inspector calls at school. I enjoyed playing the Witcher 3 game never played the others

I’ve never read the Witcher but I think that in general fiction is almost invariably easier than nonfiction, especially if the fiction book has been written in the last 50 years

im not an expert in this mens. If you like fantasy, detailed sword fighting, magic, lore, etc. i think its good. Sapkowski is pantomath so he will write in details about caves, forests and other various things which is nice to read and get you into the world
2022-08-11 03:31
Ok, i think I can answer this as i have read a shit ton of fantasy in my life: The books aren't really hard to read or to follow the plot but they are still incredibly good. Top3 famtasy series for me. Can highly recommend

Both paperback and hardback. When I really love a book I like to look for a more special hardback edition.

that's fair depends on the length of the trip obviously, but I don't usually need more than 1-2 books as there's always something going on outside of the place you're staying at. when abroad I like to buy a book at the destination, seeing it in my bookshelf back home triggers memories which is a plus
2022-08-11 12:45
Whatever's available, some stuff is just too rare or expensive to get as a physical copy. And since I spend a lot of time before PC I do read a lot just off screen, epubs n pdfs. But then again reading a good hardcover in a comfy chair behind my desk feels very good.

I laugh at armlets who say hardbacks are heavy. Really, the extra 20g of the cardboard broke your wrist? I try first to get my editions from Everymans Library or Modern Library. They feature sewn bindings (as opposed to glue) and, typically, a thinner cut of paper, each lending themselves to giving the book a "looser" feeling, with page counts above 400-500 they will just rest nicely in your palm without the book wanting to snap back shut on you from its absolute rigidity. As far as contents, I orient myself about theology, a few bronze-age to middle-age poets, symbolism/mythological deconstruction, a few on language, histories, and then selections of the classical English, German, and Russian novelists (mostly), with minor selections from other areas. A couple Scandinavian, the Arabian Nights, a few Italian, but nothing to make a whole shelf out of. I need to tackle the English poets at some point in the future but I struggled incredibly with William Blake, who very nearly renders his interpretation of monotheistic theology with his own tapestry of character types, rather than sharing from Biblical sources, so it's a very uphill battle just to familiarize yourself with his "terminology" or who represents what, since they are often shared across stories, if you don't have the proper starting point, and I DIDNT. Conversely I found Chaucer to be very fun and saucy and quick to understand, although he tends to be regarded with some difficulty according to the usage of middle English, but his stories are actually quite light and humorous, so the variegated qualities of each poet seem somewhat poised as inversions of each other.

VPN user voting is not allowed. But my choices were paperback and ereader. Hardback is better quality, but paperback is easier to hold in other positions than just sitting down. Can fold the cover to the backside etc I dont own an ereader but if i was to do more reading, i'd probably get one.
