It's no secret, even though I buy hardcovers... I am a paperback girl all the way. I don't really have a big problem with hardcovers other than the price. But what I find really annoying is when Authors that are 4, 5, 6, 7 books into a series, they decided to go hardcover. Now I realize this is probably not the Author's doing, it's probably more the Publishers idea. I just find it very frustating.
The frustration really isn't that it's a hardcover or that I'm gonna pay more for it. It's the fact that all the other damn books in the series are in paperback.
The two books below are a great example. They will be released in 2009 in hardcover, while the previous books are paperbacks. These books happen to be two of my favorite series, so of course I'll be buying them. But why do this? Is there another reason to go hardcover besides making more money??
Ok, now that I've had my little rant, I'm just wondering if this bothers anyone else?
