  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Do you prefer Hardcover, Trade Paperback, or Mass Market Paperback? Why?
What I prefer depends on the size of the book.  Many large books are uncomfortable to read in a Mass Market Paperback.  For those I like hardcover or trade paper back.  Other than that I don't really have a choice.  Mass  Market and Trade Paperbacks are easier to carry but Hardcover are often easier to read because of print size. As I said it depends.

Second muse:  I just finished The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.  I listened to it on CD and it was 36 CD's long.  I was on a very long trip (2000 miles) and still did not finish the entire thing until after I got home.  It was not the size of the book but the ending that upset me.  There was not a conclusion.  It ended with so much still up in the air and the characters still in a very unsettled place.  Now I have to read the next very long book in the series and I suspect that it will end much the same.  Please authors!  Don't do this to your readers.
