    Who can afford hardbacks these days?! For almost $30 that’s almost 3 paperbacks. I find paperbacks easier to hold anyway (especially since I do a lot of reading in bed). But I like hearing about other people’s reading quirks.

    What sort of memoirs do you like??

      I just love hardbacks, but you’re right – they are so expensive. The most recent one I’ve read was also one of my all-time favorites: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty is about a young mortician. It reminded me of another of my favorites – Mop Men: Inside the World of Crime Scene Cleaners by Alan Emmins. They’re both quirky but talk about very serious subject matters, which is often the type I find myself drawn to.
