Hardcover vs Paperback 111

Knit the Season by Kate Jacobs

Hardcover

Paperback


The ladies of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Friday Night Knitting Club celebrate special times with family and friends.

Not only are the holidays are just around the corner, the women who knit at Manhattan's Walker & Daughter have an extra reason to celebrate: there's a wedding planned for New Year's Day. In the meantime, college-age Dakota Walker is working to finish a sweater her mother started before Dakota was born. As she takes on her mother's pattern, she learns from her family and friends that there was much more history in these stitches than she had anticipated, and that to build on her mother's legacy, Dakota must allow herself to become the woman she truly desires to be... 
 
Definitely the paperback. I feel it matches the look of the other books in the series better and look at all that knitted food, how beautiful! I want to make some! I'm not sure that I like how it says "First Time in Paperback" though, anyone know why that would be put on a recent book?

  1. Wish I lived closer to you. You have quite an extensive library.

  2. I absolutely hate it when books have "first time in paperback" printed on the cover. I've come across a few books with that and I think it's rather silly. Despite that though, I also prefer the paperback.

  4. I actually like the hardcover more, although I don't know how well it fits with the rest of the series.

  6. I think maybe because the cover is different enough, the casual reader might think it's new instead of just a paperback issue of a book they might have already read?

  7. The paperback seems to fit the title much better and it's just super cute!
