The Hardcover's Always More (Not)



As I noted a while back, I buy quite a few used books via Amazon. On a number occasions, I've noticed that used hardcovers are often cheaper than used paperbacks. I'm not sure why. My guess is that it's because paperbacks tend to get first priority in the system. Tip: If you're buying used books on Amazon, always check the hardcover price.

Lots of hardcover remainders (unsold bookstore copies returned to the publishers) and ex-library copies... good advice, I have also found a lot of hardcovers for cheaper price
