|Another new feature here at TAW, The Bookish Confessionary. Confessing all my bookish sins! It will be posted fortnightly, on a Wednesday, and I will use something I never have before- GIFs!|
Images used are not mine.
I hate hardbacks.Most people in the blogosphere start fangirling and stroking the book when they buy a hardback.
I find them so awkward to read...
And they get bumped so easily and I AM SO CLUMSY I BUMP THEM EVERY TIME.
Dust jackets, don't get me started on how easily they slip.
Some hardbacks are OK, don't get my wrong.
BUT THE EXPENSE.
They're like twice the price of a paperback (which isn't very cheap anymore, either. I remember the days when a paperback was a fiver. Now they are normally £7.99...)
I don't mind those ones that don't have a jacket, like, say More Than This by Patrick Ness.
They're still awkward but there we go.
BUT STILL THE EXPENSE.
And then you have those massive-hard-back-sized paperbacks. Normally series enders, such as my copies of Allegiant and Reached. They're so annoying on the shelf, sticking up like that, like they're all so superior to the others. Honestly.
But generally, hardbacks annoy me. A lot.
