    My parents always offer to get me something small for Christmas, I usually just say I want nothing... this time I think I will ask for this :D Usually I don't mind paying for the books I really want, but it's just like agh... I already own this on kindle and mass market paperback... so I really need this??? lol... but in a way I kind of do... this series changed my life and I would love to have it in proper hardback, especially a 30th anniversary that comes with goodies.

    I want this one mainly for the alternative prologue, the "Ravens" chapter... But, as you say Ephrem, I can have that on Kindle or online at any time :shifty

    I’ve got the hardback original but this one is a great one to add to the collection!

    Is the only difference the cover, is the book the same?

    I want to get all my hardbacks before the movie comes out and all the covers change! I sure hope they don’t do that!

    The perfect gift for avid fans and new readers alike, this edition features redesigned jacket art, a new introduction from Brandon Sanderson, four-color world map endpapers, a hardcover stamp of the iconic snake-wheel, and a ribbon bookmark.

    If you have the original hardback I wouldn't worry about it. I want them all in paperback, not mass market, not hardback, just the bigger paperbacks, I saw them at my local library and they are perfect holding size.

    I like to have the smaller paperbacks for when I am travelling. Perfect plane size ;)

    the mass market paperbacks are too thick and clunky for my taste, the regular paperback is just perfect, and the hardback is just too big and clunky. that being said... I mostly read on my Kindle Paperwhite these days... I have gotten used to ebooks and really don't mind it at all, I really hope they find a way to keep battery life good but make it lighter though. sometimes the Kindle does get a bit heavy.
