>>7685723 1. I steal digital 2. I buy softcover used if I cannot find a digital copy 3. If the book becomes a top 10 lifechanging book i buy the hardcover. 4. If it is a classic childrens book i buy the hardcover for my kids
I scour thrift places and the occasional estate sale, so whatever's there. With some perseverance and diligence I've run into Folio Society, Franklin/Easton, other interesting presses and broad samples of the canon from various publishers in soft/hardcover.
>>7685723 It depends on the price. Hardcover books are sexier, but they also hurt quite a bit when you fall asleep while reading in bed. This has happened often enough that the only thing I read in bed is my kindle.
honestly think hardcovers are boring and have too much classic "hardcover aesthetics" that detract from the cover and jacket design imo.
For example, I'd say the simple paperback editions of John William's books that nyrb puts out are by far some of the best editions of any book I've seen. They have beautiful covers, are very durable and are made of quality stock and have great binding. Truly top shelf.
>>7689765 This is their hardcover version of Stoner which I think is ok just because it goes without a jacket. Besides the cover being kind of an odd choice I think this is the best way to do a hardcover
