Book Blogger Hop November 25

 The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @ the Ramblings of a coffee addict. . Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

I just love this meme and the questions that come up. They generate so much discussion which is great.

This weeks question is: Which print size do you prefer: small, medium, or large? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

I have to say that my answer to this has changed over time. I used to be perfectly happy with books that had a small print size as I preferred the books themselves to be smaller. Paperbacks used to be small enough to fit into a reasonably sized coat or jacket pocket and so it was easy to take a book with you where ever you went.

However, age has caught up with me and now I do find it much easier to read modern paperbacks that have a larger format and a bigger font size. They are much easier on the eyes especially when I’m reading at night by artificial light.

I also think that a larger print size looks a bit more inviting to read. There can be something a bit daunting about a book where the font size is quite small and the pages look a bit dense.

What about you? Which print size do you prefer?

  1. I totally agree with your thoughts, Janette. One reason I like ebooks is because I can change the font size. Later at night, I need it a bit bigger.

  2. This is why I read only ebooks anymore. I need the LARGE Print! When I was younger, I could read anything, but now I like to have the larger print.

  3. I don’t have a preference as long as the lighting is good (and I always wear reading glasses). Have a great weekend! 🙂

  4. I used to not care about or notice font size much, but these days I have trouble reading smaller fonts because my floaters can block out entire letters if they’re too tiny. So medium to large print for me.
