Pointless GWR rant coming up!
Last night – well all of Saturday afternoon, really – I was on Book Depository, furiously adding books into my basket. Hardback books. Now don’t get me wrong, the pricing isn’t that bad for the books that I was looking at (between £9-£14) with free shipping.
I added the whole Throne of glass series from Crown of Midnight onwards, and it came to quite a lot. £65.78. For hardback copies, I don’t think that this is THAT bad. It could be cheaper, but I’m willing to pay that much. IF I HAD THE MONEY TO.
The main reason that I don’t read LOADS of hardbacks (LIKE 13 BOOKS PER MONTH) is because I don’t have the money to. Which is so annoying as every inch if me is dying to press “buy” and then have beautiful Hardback books on my shelves!!! And I know that the cover shouldn’t matter, but if iI’m really into a series from the first book and haven’t got the rest of the books yet, I’ll want to buy the hardbacks BECAUSE I love the series and want them to look nice, as paperbacks can go all flimsy, etc. . .
I currently have 15 hardback books, eleven of which were gifts, the rest, well. . . they made me broke, or were the only copy available at the time on amazon.
ITS JUST THE NEED TO BUY HARDBACKS IS TOO STRONG TO FIGHT OFF!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t mind reading less books if it mans that I can purchase hardbacks instead. BECAUSE OHH MYYYY GOOSHHHH THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL!!! AND WE NEED THEM IN OUR LIVESSSSSSSSS.
But I really hate having to save to and up, then finally being able to buy books, and then the whole process literally starting up from £0 again. And as I’m 15 and don’t have a job, it is virtually impossible to save up. Let’s not even get into the struggles of getting a weekend job at my age. . .
Do you prefer Hardbacks? Can you relate? Let me know!
