Do you prefer hardcovers, trade paperbacks (the bigger ones), or mass market paperbacks (the smaller ones)? Why?
Good question. I think it's a toss-up between hardcovers and trade paperbacks. I hate mass market paperbacks (they smell funny). Hardcovers are nice, but they can be heavy (and since I read in bed, it can be hard on the hands to hold a 600-page tome over your head). Trade paperbacks are lighter, but some of them have the sort of cover that wants to curl like you've stuck it in a curling iron even though all you've done is hold the pages open (and that drives me crazy).
I'm kind of liking e-books at the moment, though. They all weigh the same on my e-reader, there are no covers to curl, and they don't smell like anything at all.
