Booking Through Thursday: Collectibles

Here's this week's Booking Through Thursday question(s):

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

I have a larger collection of paperbacks than I do hardbacks, and I really have no preference on either. However, if I'm collecting a series of books, I prefer them to either be all paperback or all hardback. Just helps with the flow of things.

I could care less about first editions....not into book collecting that much! :o)

I have a handful of autographed books, some that are personalized. I don't mind passing along the autograped books to someone else, but the personalized ones I will not part with. :o)


  1. If it's a book I plan to save then definitely hard back.
    There's something about a library of hard backs that reminds me of the old days.
    Plus I love the way a hard back ages.
    Illustrations, first editions, and signed copies are also nice but not necessary.
    I will say this: now that you've inspired me to try I'm finding a new appreciation for paperbacks.

  2. Jujita,

    I love! I am always finding books over there that I have trouble finding in my local bookstores.

  3. My books are a mixture of hardcovers and paperbacks too. :)


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
