Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
Since I reviewed Silksinger this week, I thought it would be a good idea to feature my Laini Taylor hardcovers in today’s post. Laini Taylor is one of my favorite discoveries this year and it makes me happy that I have all of her books in hardcover format:
Aren’t they pretty? And they all have illustrations inside (well, only that feather for Daughter of Smoke and Bone):
I used to have a thing about having matching editions when it comes to my books, especially if they’re part of a series, but now I don’t really mind. Although I do feel like getting hardcovers whenever I fall in love with a book because that makes me feel like the copy would last longer. Sigh, I would love to have hardcovers of all the books by Megan Whalen Turner, Robin McKinley, Ilona Andrews and Melina Marchetta but they’re not readily available (in Ilona Andrews’ case, her books are published only in paperback editions). What about you guys, are you particular when it comes to matching editions? Do you have hardcovers of all the books of certain authors?
