    I am totally ridiculous

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by chicagoliz, Dec 29, 2013.

    So, I'm looking at this book I want to read, called How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia. I really like the cover on it, but was waiting for it to come out in paperback. I see that the paperback version is going to be released in March. But you know what they did? They changed the cover!!!!!! Oh the Agony! Because I don't like the cover of the paperback. Why oh why, could they not just keep the same one????

    Now I want to buy it in hardback. I hope I can get it cheap, maybe after the paperback is released. Because now Amazon wants like $19 for it, which is too much.

    $13 including shipping on EBay if that's the book you are looking for.

    All this over a cover :p

    I only ever worry about hard or soft if I have a series that I'd like to remain uniform with.

    It is. But I want it for less than $13, too.

    Oh, I have that issue, too. I know it's silly. But I really like the hardback cover, and I wish they kept it for the paperback. Because I really don't like the paperback cover.

    I'm not really *upset.* I know I have things far more important to worry about. But still... Covers can be a big thing. I wouldn't refuse to read it or anything with the paperback. Since I've decided I'm going to read it, I'll read whatever version I can get for the best price. What I really want is a paperback version with that hardback cover.

    I think you're very much less ridiculous than you do, apparently: covers are a big thing, for me. (I'd also like to read that).
