It’s beyond annoying. I want to remedy the situation, but I also don’t want to invest the time and money into it. What am I talking about, you may ask? Don’t you see from the picture! I’m talking about series of books where I have some in soft back and some in hard cover. I swear I don’t have a complete series of anything totally in hardcover…even harry Potter! I have the first book in soft cover and all the others in hard cover. It. Is. So. Aggravating!
I love getting hard cover books, but sometimes I like to wait for the soft cover if only to save some cash. Although, with a series, I like all the books to match. Alas, I always seem to screw up somewhere along the line. Sort of like in the Song of Ice and Fire series where I have one short and squat copy, then one long and lean copy, then a short and squat, and then a long and lean and well, you get the picture. It’s a pattern of uneven-ness that bugs me!!
