Musing Mondays - April 27, 2015
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.
