50/50 Friday --- Favorite/Least Favorite Format of Books (HC, PB, ebook, etc)

50/50 Friday is a meme hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reads and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. This fun themed meme focuses on the opposite sides of books (best/worst, differing opinions, etc). Every week a new topic will give bloggers the chance to showcase their answers.

This week's topic is to highlight your Favorite/Least Favorite Format of Books (HC, PB, ebook, etc)!!

Favorite Book Format

For me it's a tie between mass market paperbacks
and unabridged audiobooks from Audible!

I like the feel of real books in my hands and being
able to actually turning pages...

But I also love to listen to unabridged audiobooks
when I am not in the mood to read a book
for whatever reason. 
Plus, listening to audiobooks
allows me to do other things while listening
to a book, like knitting, making and eating meals
when I am home alone, or  traveling, etc. 

I also enjoy being about to change
the listening speed on an Audible
audiobook in order to
finish listening to a book faster.

Least Favorite Book Format

I'd say a PDF version of a book and then reading
the book on my laptop or desktop would be my
least favorite way to read a book...

Also, have you ever tried reading a book on your
smartphone before? I did once and it's not great
either. The screen is too small on one's phone for
reading a book!!

So, what is your favorite and least favorite book format??


  1. Sometimes I like to change the speed of my audiobooks, when the narrator goes a little to slow - that really gets me when it comes to dialog.

    1. I normally speed up the audiobook because I like to get through books faster!!

  2. I can't stand reading on my phone. I have a small phone so it sucks lol. I love audio books when I'm at work because I can work and still enjoy books <3

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Reading books on a phone just doesn't work for me at all. Too much work.
