I have such a hard time deciding whether to buy books hardcover or paperback. I have Stephen King in both options but it doesn’t make the decision any easier.
Can you tell me how you decide whether you buy books hardcover or paperback? What are your deciding factors?
Thanks in advance
Hey guys so I know this isn’t a Star Wars book specific question, but I just wanted to hear your thoughts!
Can someone tell me what the hardcover books are like in terms of size? I bought the paperback versions of the first 3 books and I'm not a huge fan of how they feel. they're very thick but not very tall or wide so they feel uncomfortable in my hands.
As far as I can tell, both exist. Rightstuf only has one set of listings which I'm guessing are paperback? https://www.rightstufanime.com/Barefoot-Gen-Manga-Volume-1-Cartoon-Story-of-Hiroshima
I'm curious to know if there's any differences between the hardcover and paperback editions of the IDW and Ultimate collections. Other than the obvious difference in the type of cover/binding, of course.
I doubt there are, but my searching online hasn't yielded much, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask here.
I have the mass market paperbacks for the majority of the cosmere. I don’t own any of the hardcovers. Is there a different in content between the two? Story wise that is. I know, for rhythm of war at least, that some hardcovers have illustrations on the front pages in color.
Guys is there any of you who purchased the paperback? I already seen how the hardcover looks like, but I wanted to check the paperback, and I can't find a single photo of it. I'd be really grateful if someone could send me some pictures! Thanks a lot
A paperback book is much superior to hardcover. Hardcover books are heavier and are much more difficult to read. Every body should read paperback versions of their favorite book.
Might be slightly off topic, but when reading and/or collecting, which version do you prefer? Personally I like paperback more, easier to read for longer periods, a bit more portable, I enjoy the visible wear it can gain over time, and the price usually is cheaper which sweetens the deal a bit!! But that’s just me, how about y’all?
I saw that Tower of God is up for pre-order on amazon.
There is a paperback and a hardcover edition.
But why is the paperback 288 pages and the hardcover only 164?
Is it an error? The dimensions are the same.
I’d definitely love to have some hardcovers for manga.
I do not understand why the the cover for the English TOG is different when every other translation has the same as the original Korean version?
Personally, I like the original covers more since it looks cleaner and true to the series. The English cover just feels claustrophobic since there are so many characters and the title is placed 3 times.
Webtoon's Instagram account posted this news approximately 2 weeks ago with the same cover, so it is probably the final version. I am hoping that a "special edition" will come out with the original/Korean covers since those just look so much better (just a personal opinion).
*Marking this as spoiler since some parts of the cover are from later parts of the story. Please unmark as a spoiler if it does not constitute as such.
**Forgive me if I do anything wrong or outside of community guidelines, I don't use reddit often.
I haven't been able to find a product designed to accomplish this. All I can think of is to use adhesive tape to attach the AirTag to the book's cover, or use tape to make a sleeve to fit around the cover. Has anyone come up with a good solution for this use case?
Personally I like hardback that way I can throw them at my siblings (and they're not as likely to tear) but y'all choose what you want.
Which do you prefer and why? Personally, (when I’m not on my kindle) I like paperbacks. I find them easier to read/hold. Plus they are cheaper!
It's a typical full-color illustrated children's picture book, standard length. I'm making a hardcover and a paperback, launching simultaneously, and paperback pricing seems to be a lot more all over the map than hardcovers, so I'm wondering what people actually *expect* to pay for a paperback picture book these days (non-classic, non- mass market), and when they'd choose it over a hardcover.
I am looking to buy Kill La Kill manga volume 2 to complete my set. Cannot find this particular volume anywhere. Also, willing to trade /1000 limited edition gold foil hardcover of volume 1 perhaps if the deal is right. Please, comment below if you are willing to sell or work out a deal. Thanks again.
Looking to trade some books and see what your trade stacks are looking like. Mainly looking for complete editions and Epics, but always interested in many things.
Let me know! Thank you

I'm planning on buying the Ascendancy trilogy soon, I'm debating whether to get the hardcover versions or the paperback ones.
I have the paperback editions of the Empire trilogy, are the Ascendancy one the same size? Anyone got them and can send me some pics of them?
Please let me know if this is allowed, or if there’s somewhere else I should look!
My husband just published his first ever book, in ebook and paperback. I would love to make him a special hardcover for either Father’s day or his birthday, but have no idea how to start or where to look. I’m sorta crafty, but I’d love to do something that looks professional. This book is his baby and we’re all very proud of him and his work.
Any tips or tutorials would be greatly appreciated, or if there’s anywhere I can put in a commission. Thank you in advance!
The campaign is live as of 8am this morning!
You can check out the Kickstarter yourself, so I won't bore anyone with details, but you can get:

If you collect Star wars books, do you collect paperback or hardcover and why the other?
