While acknowledging that we can’t judge books by their covers, how much does the design of a book affect your reading enjoyment? Hardcover vs. softcover? Trade paperback vs. mass market paperback? Font? Illustrations? Etc.?
I really don't think the actual design of the book affects my enjoyment of it. It's easier to read a softback than a hardback, but I still enjoy the hardbacks of course! I
llustrations? I can take 'em or leave 'em. Some are pretty cool, but, it sure doesn't affect my enjoyment of the book.
Trade paperbacks are the best, but I sure read lots of the mass market kind too.
Fonts? Hmmmm.... if it's a really hard to read font, that could be a problem. But most books don't have a problem with weird fonts.
So, the short answer: nope! I enjoy the book no matter what, really. :)
