[TOMT] Ok, this might be a tough one. An old (60s or 70s?) hardbacked book of sci-fi comics, some involving space cadets.

I remember a few blurry details of some of the comics. I can't remember if there were recurring characters or if it was broken up into different stories.

  • Astronauts/space cadets wearing scary space suits with CCCP written on them (cold war era)
  • A godzilla-type story line in which a giant lizard comes from the site of nuclear tests in the pacific
  • In one of the stories someone gets killed or knocked out by someone else throwing some sort of dart at them?

The last time I saw this thing was probably at least fifteen years ago when I was 11 years old, so the details are VERY hazy. I remember it was awesome though, in terms of the sci-fi stories and the art. It was my dad's book which he gave to me but in moving house, family breaking up etc, it's been lost.

It really would mean a lot to me if Reddit could help me find it. I believe in you Reddit!

EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot to mention, I've Googled it quite a few times over the years and the result Tom Corbett: Space Cadet comes up a lot. Unfortunately this is not the thing I'm talking about.

1st Ed. hardback of Baroque Cycle looking for a good home

Update: These have found a home. Thanks for the interest, folks!

***

Apologies if this sort of post isn't allowed here.

It's time for me to downsize my shelves. I have a set of the three hardback versions of the Baroque Cycle (before it was split up into 9 in later editions) that I'd like to send to a good home. I don't want money for them - just looking to send them along. You pay shipping and they're yours. I have some other NS books I can also add in if interested, but they're not as "special" as my metallic beauties.

The catch is that I live in a very rural area. USPS is really my only good shipping option. If anyone is interested, DM me.

Smaller / Pocket-sized hardbacks - which one?

I'm considering getting a smaller sized hardback and am thinking of one of these (to potentially replace my paperback set of LOTR+Hobbit, or just as a complement).

Does anyone have both of these, and if so how do they compare for quality and text size for readability?

I've got several hundred hardback books that I'd like to give away, but all of the libraries I've contacted are not accepting donations due to Covid...any suggestions?

We recently downsized our book collection and we have several hundred (probably 500-600) books to give away...most of them are hardbacks, some of them are actually autographed, and they range from gardening, cooking, history, lots of fiction, and some other categories I can't really recall.

We previously gave away 300-500 to the library, but they are no longer accepting donations due to Covid. We reached out to a couple other non-profits in our area that have libraries, and none of them so much as even got back to us (a little disappointing that).

I understand that a local Habitat type place that accepts donations which they sell for the local animal shelter will accept books, but I kinda feel that they will likely languish in that place, only to be thrown away when they don't move (I could be wrong).

So, long story short (yeah, yeah, too late, haha) anyone have any suggestions of some charities that might be interested in such a thing?

Collection of children’s stories hardback book white cover with purple spine

STORY ABOUT ANIMALS PLAYING THE PIANO?! hi I’m desperate to find this book! it has multiple children’s fairytales in it like jack and the bean stock, red riding hood and another story about animals playing the piano? (Which is hilarious that’s the reason I’m looking, both my grandad and myself used to read it every day I’m laughing fits before bedtime) i read this as a little girl with my grandad (around 12 years ago now) and I can’t seem to find the book. I think I gave it to another younger family member! I’m sure it has a purple spine, white cover with illustrations on the front with gold writing! Thanks

Does UK hardbacks have illustrations?

I've searches and gooogled and I can't seem to find an answer for this.

I've wanted to get the physical books for a while and I keep getting stuck on what editions to get. I have Mistborn and Warbringer in the UK paperback editions and unfortunately SA is splitted into separate books for part 1 and 2 (which I cannot stand). So I think my only option is hardback.

Do anyone of you know if the UK hardback editions have illustrations?

Possible unpopular opinion, but paperback is better than hardback πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Idk why so many people prefer hardback books. They tend to be physically larger both thicker and aren't usually smaller sizes like paperback. Also when reading them I can easily bend it or have it in more possible positions for reading. Also it's just more comfortable to read with. Lastly they are almost always cheaper and you don't have some flimsy paper cover to worry about losing/tearing.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter tho!

1984 hardback uniform edition

So about 15 years ago I bought a 1963 print of 1984. I was told about a year later that it is a copy that shouldn't exist as the publisher burnt down that year, I have tried to get this verified a few times to no avail lending more to that belief. (No ISBN as ISBN was introduced in 1964) Its a 1963 hardback uniform edition of George Orwell's 1984 with the original dust sleeve. The pages are slightly yellowed due to age, but it's in great condition. Could anyone please offer advice?

[Discussion] Is there any way i could get the story as a hardback book?

I love this story. From the way new mysteries pop up, to the certain realism within its world, to the characters (except THE CURSED ONE), to the power balances etc.

I honestly think it deserves a spot in my library as a hardback copy like other great literary works. I have never purchased light novels so i don't know if they do hardback, is it a thing?

If not, is there a way around to getting one? (probably more than one since the whole story won't fit in 1 book).
