Thoughtful Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Reading Is Fun Again where I’ll answer whatever bookish question is thrown at me. If you would also like to participate, find out the rules by clicking here.
This Week’s Question:
Have you ever bought multiple editions of the same book? What inspires you to do that (e.g., covers, language, author revisions)?
I’ve never been a big ebook or audible book reader (though I may have to start, seeing as my bookshelf is about to explode), so I don’t own any books both as a hardcopy and digital copy. I do, however, have several editions of some hardcopy books, but they are all classics like The Scarlet Letter and Pride and Prejudice. The only reason I have multiple copies of my favorite classics are because 1) they have so many different, unique covers 2) they are easy to find in used bookstores and 3) they are usually cheap.
