Changing Covers – does it annoy you?
I admit it, I’m completely OCD about having all the same covers for books in a series.
For example, whilst I loved the adult covers for the Harry Potter books and actually preferred them to the children’s ones, I already had all the children’s ones in hardback, and so continued to buy them to complete the set.
It annoyed me when they changed the covers for The Saga of Darren Shan halfway through, leaving me with a set of half-and-half’s. I liked the old covers – okay, the new ones are fairly cool, but I couldn’t complete my set looking the same because they just stopped doing them in the old style.
It actually annoys me equally as much when I have part of a series in ebook format for my Kindle, and half in books. I’ve just done that to the Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano – it cost me less to buy the hardback version of Fever online than it would have done to get the Kindle Edition, even though I have Wither on the Kindle.
Does anyone else do things like this? Which cover changes have annoyed you most?
