After all, they can charge a higher price for each book. With the release of a new publication, book enthusiasts might not be willing to wait until the paperback is released to read it. There is a higher chance that they will buy the hardbound books.This is why it is more valuable than a paperback. Not only that, it also takes care of your books well. If you want to collect books or you want to have your own library of books, make sure you buy the hard cover books.
