Paperback Book Day
Books were once bound in heavy wooden covers and bound with leather. These books were very heavy and durable. The paperback novel was a new method of improving the printing and publishing process of books. It was invented in the 19th century.
These books were easy to transport, cheaper to make, and provided a lovely way to keep one’s favorite book close at hand. Paperback Book Day is a celebration of the new book and those who use it every day.
Softbacks and softcovers are also terms for paperback books. This book is typically covered with a thick or paperboard cover. It is usually held together with glue rather than staples and stitches. A hardback book or hardcover is the opposite.
These books are bound with cardboard, which is then covered with leather, plastic or cloth. The pages of the book are made from paper. Paper books make the best books. This route is often chosen by publishers because it’s cheaper.
The first edition of a masterpiece may often be available in paperback. This is why Paperback Book Day is so important! Since at least the 19th Century, inexpensive books bound in paper are still in use. These include airport novels, yellowbacks and dime novels as well as pamphlets.
There are many sizes available in paperbacks today. There are both more durable and larger trade paperbacks in the United States as well as more mass-market paperbacks. The UK has a variety of sizes. There are three sizes: C-format (B-format), and A-format.
Commonality of the railway was one of the factors that resulted in lighter books. Although the railway allowed for faster travel over vast distances, one could easily spend several weeks in a carriage that covered large areas of countryside.
Books were an excellent way to pass time. However, they were expensive and very heavy. This made them difficult to transport and hard to read on the road. The railway passengers were the first to receive paperback books.
Paperback books have been increasing in popularity since then due to their low price and portability. Modern advances have made books lighter, and you can access them on your phone. However, nothing is quite like holding a book in one’s arms and reading it in quiet moments. Paperback Book Day celebrates comfort and leisurely hours.
Paperback Book Day commemorates the anniversary of when the first Penguin paperbacks appeared in England in 1935. Only hardcover books were considered good literature back in those days. However, not everyone had the funds to buy harcovers.
They were heavy and bulky, making them difficult to transport. It was time for change! Paperback books were available before 1935. They were however very expensive and of poor quality. Sir Allen, who went by the penguin name, started the paperback revolution. Penguin published books by some of the greatest fiction authors, including Ernest Hemingway and Agatha Christie.
Paperback Book Day can be celebrated by curling up with your favorite paperback. This is your chance to buy a book if it has been awhile since you last bought one. Find a copy of your favorite text and get out there. You can even give one to a friend.
After you have scoured the shelves at the closest book shops and visited all of the used book stores, it is time to go home and take a look at your collection. Paperback Book Day is a reminder of those rainy, quiet days when you read a book as the drizzles poured down the windowspane.
