I agree with Jan...I buy paperback fiction and circulating non-fiction
when possible. We cover them with Kapco rigid plastic covers and use
fiberglass tape on the hinges to help them last longer. My experience with
teenagers is that they'd rather checkout paperbacks than
hardcovers...perhaps it's something to do with the weight of their
backpacks these days. I prefer paperbacks for another reason -- my current
schools have quite a bit of population turn over and I'd rather lose a
$5.00 paperback than an $18.00 library bound hardcover when a student
moves. When I'm buying reference, I go for the hardcover, though.

Well, that's my two bits for today, :)
