Remember the last time you fell in love with a book?
You kept it close—because putting it down was too difficult. You took it everywhere—just to read a couple of pages in a spare moment. And if you want your readers to do the same with your book, then you make it a paperback.
What's a paperback book?
Paperback books (also known as softcover or softback books) are typically made with a thick paper or cardboard cover and held together with flexible glue binding, or perfect binding. They’re small and lightweight, making them perfect travel companions. Paperbacks are also popular for many book styles, including children’s, young adult fiction, romance, poetry, graphic novels, and religious books.
What's the difference between paperback and hardcover books?
Hardcover books are typically made of cardboard, and can be covered with paper, cloth, or a similar fabric for protection. These books are bound with adhesive case wrapping, making for a studier book. However, paperback books can be much more accessible and easier for readers to take on the go.
