I hate it when a book I've read is reissued in a different form. It's usually one I've read some time ago so I may not remember the title. Currently a number of Nora Roberts' thrillers are being reissued in hardback after originally being issued in paperback. I'm happy to see a new book until I read the flyleaf and realized I've be taken !Jacki
haha I had same problem with Harlequin romances!! Just kidding - it was novels by Craig Thomas. Used to read a book a week -sometimes more, and oftentimes recognize past-read books by their cover. Nothing worse than two copies.
If it's a book that was eventually made into a movie, all of the newer editions have a picture of the actor/actress on the cover, or something akin to the movie poster. I like going to old bookstores and finding old editions that have original art on the jacket that has nothing to do with the still-to-be-made film, and usually has a context that was more of the original intent of the author and not of some movie studio. These older editions also have valuable snob-appeal.ASM
