I usually find Barnes&Noble to be much better about having books in on their release date. Thus, I was somewhat shocked to find the new Hardy Boys books at my local Books-A-Million today! So I went ahead and got the first two in the series as well as the first two in the Nancy Drrew series. They only had paperback though- no hardback yet. Still, it was exciting to get the new series. And I flipped through HBA #2 and I saw that Iola shows up! Yay! I know I don't like everything in this series already- but I'm still excited to read these soon. :) 8)

Wow, that's something that they were available early! 8) Cool Iola! ;D 8)

Yeah- I've seen both Amazon.com and Walmart.com have the hardcover editions listed- I've just yet to see the hardbacks in any stores. I think I will wind up ordering a hardcover copy of the first title from Amazon.com when I have the money for it... but I doubt I would bother to get the others in hardcover. I'm sure some hardcore Hardy Boys collectors will get them all in hardcover- but I just don't have the money for it.

The hardcovers are probably going to be like the Wanderer hardcovers---more for libraries than private collections.

The hardcovers are actually really nice. Two-tone blue paper with silver embossing on the spine and a dustjacket the same as the paperback cover.

Sounds very nice-looking! 8) I haven't seen the hardcovers yet either, but I'd like to. :)

Jennifer's Series Books on FB posted the ND Hardbacks, they're really nice, bound with cloth. I agree with Tom Swift, I think they're going to be done the Wanderer Way, no bookseller in town has the hardcovers in stock.

Cool- thanks for the info. This is why I'm planning to put in an order on Amazon.com for a hardcover for The Hardy Boys series (though I'll probably just get the first one, I think) when I have the money to spare for it.

It's not cloth over the boards, it's patterned paper to look like cloth, same as the Hardy Boys ones - I've got all four books.

That's weird, but I guess it's nicer than plan paper. I guess this is a sort or "Imitation Leather" instead it's "Imitation cloth". ;D

I haven't received my copies yet, but I would assume that, aside from the picture being on the boards, the hardcover binding, from all the descriptions, would be similar to S&S was doing it's Trek hardcovers a few years ago.
