So I figure I'm not the only one who
regularly occasionally finds herself mired in the dilemma of which edition of a book to buy. With a number of lovely sites like The Book Depository out there, we collectors have increasingly easier access (thank you free shipping worldwide) to the gorgeous editions available to our friends on the other side of the world. And covers are such personal things, aren't they? I love browsing different editions and experiencing that moment when I see the one. The one that will live on my shelves. Of course, then it's a matter of locating it and scraping together the funds . . . but never mind that bit.
All of this to say that I thought I'd start up an irregular and entirely at my personal whim feature entitled Choose Your Own Edition, in which I can secure your good opinion on which edition I should purchase of whichever book I'm romancing at the time. Up first: Rainbow Rowell's Landline.
I loved this book (as I tend to do when she's the one with the words). I have a much-lent out ARC, but I'm itching to own my own finished copy. Above we have the US hardcover (left), US paperback (middle), and UK hardcover/paper (right). What's your pleasure? I'm partial to the phones on the US paper and UK covers. And I really love the title font for both US covers. But that tagline on the UK one is so very charming. I'm torn. Your input, if you please.
