This week's question...
All other things being equal–do you prefer used books? Or new books? (The physical speciman, that is, not the title.) Does your preference differentiate between a standard kind of used book, and a pristine, leather-bound copy?
I always prefer new books, but cost can be prohibitive and I'll get a used book. My only problem with used books are that some people just don't treat their books very kindly and some can be almost disgusting to touch. That's why I prefer the new books (plus I love the 'new book' smell). If I do get used books, mine are contemporary paperbacks so they are never leather-bound or first edition collectible types.
