Paperbacks revolutionized the habits of every reader when they first appeared in the 1930s. By the 1960s, the softcover “pocket books” had begun dominating bookstores; Not only were they cheaper to print and buy, these softcovers were also easier to transport than the bulky hardcovers. But did that make hardcovers vanish from the face of earth? Hardly so.
Despite their popularity, it’s still impossible to find paperback versions of many new books when they debut. It’s a common practice among publishers to release new titles as hardcovers and publish the paperback edition about a year after the initial print run. People who do their reading at the beach or on the subway may not be happy about it, but the financial benefits of this model, coupled with the old-school charm of a well-designed hardcover mean it likely isn’t going away any time soon.
