Hehehehe for hardcover, you pay for the cover since it's fancier and thicker than paperback. The hardcover book is normally bigger than a paperback book, and the paper quality is way better than that of a paperback. I bought one paperback book back then and let my cousin borrow it for her flight to France and Italy (the Angels and Demons one :cry: I wanted her to trace the steps they had in the book. Unfortunately, she finished it on the way home. She regretted not to listen to me, as most people would be at some point in their lives LOLOLOLOL). And she gave me back a wrinkly, junky book after a month. I never wanted to buy paperback books again. :roll:

Of course it depends on how you treat the book... I've got many paperback books that are still in good conditions :D

I try not to bend them too much! :lol:

And yes I like to have a pencil near me when I'm reading a book for the very first time but not many of them have interesting fragments or phrases to underline...

--> Maybe we should create a new topic?

The guy is talented I love his work I'm reading A Thousand splendid Suns and It's been great. His detailed description and the style of narration and not to mention the great language he uses in general all add up for a great reading experience.
a Must read for bookworms!
