So I have been looking forward to the release of the next Alpha and Omega novel for some time. The release date even got pushed back from January to March so I have been waiting as patiently as I can.
Finally, the release date comes and I rush down to the bookstore. But they only have it in hardback! F- you, hardback! I don't want that! Hardback is frigging ridiculous, why? Because I have the other books in the series and they are in paperback. You can't buy the other books in hardback. I don't want a nice neat row of paperbacks in a series and then one giant hardback! It's ridiculous! They take up so much room.
I realize the author is getting famous and when that happens, the hardbacks start coming out because people will gladly pay more money for the book. And I'm all about the author getting their due for a good job. But... my collection! I don't want one ridiculously giant book poking out of all my regular sized books. I know it sounds OCD, but it looks horrid on the shelf. I would seriously gladly pay more to get my damn paperback if it meant I could get it on the release date.
