Like you'd ever need to whiteout any words in a Hardy Boys book. :o :P Okay, so there was that one time, but just once! :-[

Hopefully you'd never need to mark out any words in a Hardy Boys book- but yeah, unfortunately there have been some words I'd rather not see there....
Maybe we should stick with a highlighter to mark all the really great passages! :)

I said paperback because the Casefiles are in paperback. But also 'cause they're easier to carry around.

For non-series books, like biographies, I prefer the hardcover.

Paperback. They're easier to squeeze into my messengers bag. :)

Agreed.

That's another good reason. :)

Most all of The Hardy Boys books are in paperback- the Digests, the Casefiles, the Undercover Brothers and other spinoff series and books. The hardbacks are mainly the Original Series, though they have been released in paperback form too (in England, that is). And of course, some of the Digests and Casefiles have been released as hardbacks too, as well as a few of the spinoff books.

I just looked it up, but didn't see anything about a release date for that title. Thanks for the list of ebooks to be released, Dinosaur Dan. :)

Paperback- classic :)
