Booking Through Thursday 2-26-2009




  • Hardcover? Or paperback?
  • Illustrations? Or just text?
  • First editions? Or don't you care?
  • Signed by the author? Or not?

I don't really care if a book is hardcover or paperback - if it is an author that I like and the story is good, that is all that matters. I do have a bunch of authors that I "collect" their books - these are mainly authors that I started reading when I was a teen (Stephen King, Dean Koontz, John Saul) and I have added some to the mix now (Anne Rice, Karen Rose, Ted Dekker, Robert Liparulo, Anne Perry). I think that you can tell what kind of books that I like to read!

I don't really care if a book is a first edition or not - it doesn't change the story within and that is really what is all about. Now as for being signed by the author? I think this is very cool - especially when you win the books from a giveaway and the author emails you personally to find out to whom he should autograph them. (Thanks Mr. Liparulo!!)


This is a weekly meme hosted by Deb here.

    I don't care about the first edition thing either. To me all that matters is that I want to read the story, whether it is hardcover or paperback, matters very little!! I like a lot of your favorite authors too!

    Signed books are really cool! I have to admit that our tastes in authors are different, but that's ok - I love to expand my reading horizons (although Stephen King is a little too far off my horizon.) :)
