I was going to read this book on the plane, but I hate reading hardbacks, and I imagine I’d hate reading hardbacks even more on a Ryanair plane. I’m still excited about reading this book, even though it’s a hardback. But I need to be at home with a hardback, so I have room to operate. There isn’t really a point to this post, I just wanted to say I’m going to Italy and I had nothing Italian to post. I can only post a photo of my passport so many times. But, even though I don’t have a point, I do have some questions. Like: Why do publishers release hardbacks first? And why does the paperback not follow sooner? And does anyone actually enjoy reading a novel in hardback? It seems like such a terrible format for novels. Anyway, I’ll just take a different book to Italy and forget all about this until I get back. I hope you all have a good weekend.
