BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

PAPERBACK OR HARDBACK COVER?

the gathering pb The Gathering

          Paperback                       Hardback/Kindle

 

Which cover do you like best and why? Personally, I like the HB cover best, it looks more gothic in nature and I just love the coloring. Now it’s possible as I’d only seen the HB cover up till this morning, that my mind has already attached a link in my mind that the HB cover was THE cover for The Gathering.

I actually love the paperback. It makes me want to read the book more (yes, I might judge a book by it's cover on occasion! lol) All the blues in the Hardback just didn't work for me. I like the greens & whites of the paperback.
I guess that's why they make a new cover for paperback releases, right? So they can pull in new readers. : )

My fear is when the cover is different, I'll end up with BOTH a HB and PB copy.

I am still going to stick with the Hardback simply because it does not #1 affect the story inside and #2 because have the whole series in Hardback and will want the books to match size wise when finally get a copy of "The Gathering">

I prefer the hardcover it is very pretty. The paperback is kind of weird in my opinion.

I like the Hardback more. It's prettier, and I love the color blue!! :)

I like the paperback better. I think I'm just more drawn to the color, and I have a tendency to love covers with white backgrounds like that one.

This is the first time I have seen the PB cover, but I still like the HB cover better. I really like the silhouette and the color used.

I like them both but I think I like the HB cover a little more. It looks a little more mysterious and interesting to me.

I like both covers but I like the HB cover a little more. I have not read the book yet but the cover just looks a little more mysterious and interesting to me.

I prefer the hardback cover. I love the color and pose. The paperback cover has just a little too much going on.

Clary said...

I prefer the Hardback cover. I've always loved that one.

jeanette8042 said...

I prefer the hardback cover because it is more focused and seems to be more representative of the story in my opinion.

buddyt said...

I find the paperback cover is a little confusing with the double image which seems unneccessary.

So I will go with the HB.

Thanks.

I like the HB cover better.
The paperback is irritating me. I don't know which girl I should look at.

Aleetha said...

I prefer the hardcover. The paperback's cover is little bit weird. I hope they find another design

Between the two covers, I go with the paperback. I think the colors and cover design just make for a bigger enticement.

Krystal said...

I like the hard cover, the face is more distinct and intriguing...but the paperback is cheaper *shrugs*

Linda Henderson said...

I like the paperback version better. Although neither one is bad.

I think I like the paperback better. It's probably because it's green (my favorite color :3) but also because it's ... more modern I guess :)

I am obsessed with this book and the covers. So good post to comment on.

At first I was in love with the hardcover (US cover) and really didn't even know that there was another cover.

Then I won the book and I got sent the UK version (paperback). At first i was not happy since I had seen the other cover everywhere.

But now I actually like the paperback version. Not better. But it feels so soft. And after reading the book i think the UK cover really suits it.

Yikes. I don't particularly enjoy looking at the paperback cover. :\

Now, the hardback is nice. It sort of represents the main protagonist in an intriguing way. Plus, it's prettier than the first cover, haha. And it's almost like the covers for the Darkest Powers, which are AWESOME; I love them.

Judit said...

Definitely hardback. The paperback cover is just so....disturbing. It's not ugly just not pretty either.

I like the HB cover best. The colors are prettier and it isn't as harsh.
