Poll - what kind of format is preferable?

Well, according to the nine (9) people who answered the poll, paperback rules! This feels kind of nice since it economically democratised reading and made good books available to everyone. The Swedish equivalent to quality paperback, storpocket, can obviously give up and die. No one voted for it. Personally, I have now reached the conclusion that it must be an issue of price. The Swedish format costs almost twice as much as its smaller counterpart while the English/ American format is only mariginally more expensive.

I will have to think about a question for a new poll that interests more than nine people though. Any suggestions will be happily accepted. The Jane Austen poll is the top one so far with 17 voters. My next goal is to have 20!
