Technology has no doubt made tons of advancements is keep on growing. None of the industry is spared from the usage of technology. Now there are apps where people can read books in electronic formats commonly known as e-books. However the feel of paper, smell of new book, the gentle touch of pages, etc. cannot be forgotten. Those who love are still using the paperback books and they definitely understand the importance of those. They are still buying paperback books to keep their tradition and love alive.

Paperback books were first brought into the picture during the 19th century after which it became a popular style in continental Europe. Soon after, the style of book covers started to lay its base in Britain and America in the 1930s, when publishers began mass-producing cheap but well-designed reproductions of older texts. This was aimed at a new generation of readers, who could not afford to purchase the hardbacks.

Today too the paperbacks are a popular choice among readers as hardbacks remain expensive and are still treated as valuable collectibles among the elite readers. Hardcover books are, after all, only published if they promise high deliverance. However, this does not mean that paperback books are not worth the read. There are several books on Paperback, which deliver noteworthy stories too. You just need to know how to pick them up when you go shopping for them

Here are some tips to keep you from getting confused when shopping for paperback books online. And trust us there is certainly a vast difference between a paperback book, e-book and hardcover book, in terms of prices and formats.

1. Paperback books are widely available on every online bookstore. Before making the click on the buy, just see the details of the book. This section contains the ISBN number along with the format and type of book. Once you have made sure that it is a paperback then you can proceed with the checkout formalities.

2. Check the price and judge for yourself whether it is paperback or a hardcover. After all, even if you are just picking a book to read while travelling, it is going to be with you for quite some time. Plus paperbacks are always tends to be on the lower side of the price scale, so choosing and differentiating will not be too difficult.

3. If you are buying a series and the rest of them are in hardcover then do not make the mistake of buying a paperback edition. It will just make your collectible’s look out of place. Stick to one style for the series. Normally if one site is not offering a paperback doesn’t mean it is not available at all. You can always check other websites as well to have a look.

4. If you plan to carry the book wherever you go, then buying a paperback is the ideal choice. Imagine how heavy your bag would feel if you had a hardcover book with you. Furthermore, paperback books are much easier to hold especially when you cannot get yourself a seat on the tube and are holding on to a strap or a pole. It is more logical as it can be fold and tug easily.

5. You can always choose to buy trade paperback books if you are in a dilemma between the both. Trade paperbacks resemble hardcover books but are not real hard cover books.

The Buried Giant (by Kazuo Ishiguro)

Britain’s mythical past has been the subject of many fantastical literary treatments, some of which have been successfully converted into million-dollar movies. The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro is somewhat of a historical novel but with a very heavy mythical/fantastical narrative. The book plays with interesting mix of Roman influences and plotlines that are definitely British in nature. The story is geographically based along the Hadrian’s Wall and Saxon villages that existed several hundred years ago. The protagonist of the story is a couple suffering from amnesia who ventures out to visit their lost son, who has also lost all his memories. Under way Beatrice and Axl go through an eerie and mysterious pre-Roman Britain which is full of sorcery and fantasy. If you love fantasy, this book will leave you in and make you spread eagle on the beach for hours wading deep into Kazuo Ishiguro’s mystery land.

Go set a Watchman (by Harper Lee)

If you have read to kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, you will love this book. This is a sequel to the previous book which sold millions of copies in the United Kingdom alone. Just like the previous book, Go Set a Watchman is an intriguing story about racism. In this book the protagonist’s father Atticus Finch, who seemed to be a proto-champion of civil rights in the previous story, turns out to be a racist and reality. This comes as a shock to Jean Louise Finch and how she deals with it. The novel draws a lot from what actually transpired in the wake of the Montgomery bus Boycott incident in America. The story is as much about the profound social injustice and toxic environment this view from racism as much it is about a white man’s struggle within his conscience. It’s a historically significant book that looks into racism and social conflict of America in the early 60s. An awesome summer read that you can buy at an online bookstore in UK and carry with you the next time you head for the beach.

Long Walk to Freedom (by Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela) is a collection of well-chosen memories of a person who single-handedly fought apartheid in South Africa. In his fight against inequality between the black and white man, he was incarcerated for 27 years during which he was degraded to such an extent that it would have embittered any human being. Mr Mandela is the opposite of bitter. He listened, negotiated and fought for a solution that was acceptable to the whole of South African society. Although he is sometimes placed parallel to Mahatma Gandhi, Mandela refused to renounce violence. For him nonviolence was not a moral principle but a strategy and he frequently drew up plans for guerrilla warfare that led to civilian deaths and disturbance. Never for once in Mandela’s autobiography will you come across him shying away from standing behind his actions, instead he explains them to the best of his abilities. Armed warfare was an effective weapon, Mandela says, that was necessary to retaliate against the armed struggle which was imposed by the apartheid regime in South Africa at that time. Long Walk to Freedom is a complicated book, dealing with a very complicated issue in history that is put forward in a very well-balanced narrative. This book will keep echoing in your heart forever and will teach you the value of patience and courage in life.

Privacy – The biggest reason people buy books online than at stores?

When you have a good book in mind, what is the first thing you do to acquire it? I like to buy cheap books online in UK and if you are like me and you love reading books during your daily office transit, then perhaps you prefer books on your Kindle rather than a paperback, right? The number of people who prefer reading electronic versions of their books rather than physical copies is steadily increasing and there are quite a few reasons for the change.

Personally, I’m one of those few people would still love to hold physical book once in awhile, stroking the pages and smelling the piney fragrance of that make paperbacks so special. But I don’t see so many books anymore, except in libraries. Why are more of us buying e– books or even paperbacks online and not at bookstores? I’ve got a few opinions of my own that I’d like to share with you.

We appreciate the little privacy about our choices, don’t we. When you are at the store to buy a book, you will have people looking over your shoulders and from the corner of their eyes checking out your choice of books and not refraining from making judgemental comments about your selection of book. I do not appreciate unsolicited ‘expert’ comments or book advice, and perhaps you don’t either. I buy cheap books online in UK and store them in the privacy of my electronic readers, away from the prying eyes of others. And when I’m committing on the Underground, it’s easy for me to keep my e-books to myself rather than have half the coach peeking over my shoulder and making assumptions about my choices in literature! What about you? Why would you buy cheap books online in UK? Tell us about it in the comment section and share your experience with us.
