As the release of the seventh and final book approaches,
we want to know the answer to the question, which version
of binding do you prefer to purchase?

We *have* a books forum.

And an all-purpose Potter thread upon it.

I haven't read or bought any of the Harry Potter books, as I'm a rebel like that (I'm just not interested), but, in regards to soft/hardcover preferences, if George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series came out in hardcover editions (instead of just A Game of Thrones) I'd buy them all up. :D

Are you kidding me? There's no way I could wait for the paperback to come out.

Plus I have them all in hardbound, anyway.

Hardbound. I prefer hardcovers anyway, plus there's the added points of having the first six in hardcover and not wanting to wait a year and have the whole thing spoiled by the time I get it.

I prefer paperback and have all the others in paperback, but I'll be getting the hardcover of 7 because I can't wait to read it.

I buy the hardback just because I think they look better and I got the first book as a gift and it was hard back and I have a thing about if I have a series then they have to match.

I don't actually buy them, but in absence of me purchasing, my mother buys them in hardcover. She also gets the audiotapes.

A good friend of mine bought me the first Harry Potter book in hardback for a gift and he continues to hook me up when the new one is released.It does help he is a manager at a Book a Million.

Hardbacks keep longer from normal reading abuse.I just make sure to store the dust jacket in a safe place while reading.
