I prefer the hardcovers too, but, know what you mean about lack of space. Have to get another bookcase; the one I have doesAre you cwazy? (sp)
Here's Jamie Oliver, Rachel Ray and Gordon Ramsay doing the ice bucket challenge
(No thanks - I prefer heat myself).
But back to the thread topic - if I can afford the hardback I will go for that but eventually you start to run out of space.
Is this a joke? Are you really a professional weight lifter or are you just being facetious?Paperback here. As a professional weight lifter, my arm gets tired while reading hardcovers. Need to save my strength for the other heavy... things. I'm a professional.
Also, I don't feel so bad about bending the spines of paperbacks.
Welcome back, Cowboy!Hardbacks are so sexy.....paperbacks are tawdry.....ebooks are so impersonal. I'm trying to get the entire King collection in first run hardback (where possible). That reminds me....I might be looking to make a trade. Autographed Just after Sunset for something good....just saying.
...and extra dust jackets by Glenn Chadbourne are always handy......I like to have one of each. But if it's only possible to have one copy of a book, I'd rather have the hardcover copy. They are more durable with repeated handling. Probably retain more value as well.
