This review is from: Jane Austen: The World of Her Novels (Paperback)
It's by all accounts a great book about Jane Austen and her novels and a MUST for Jane Austen lovers. So why publish it only as a paperback where it will fall apart after the 3rd or 4th reading (or even after the 2nd). What a waste of money on a book (or the farce that calls itself a Kindle), which would get place of pride in my library. Any chance the publisher will suddenly get a sudden intellectual high and give us real book lovers a hard back version? Probably not. Even people who look as if they had a brain pull those computerised flimsy net/pad books out of their pockets and think they look cool. I'd give it no stars if I could and I would have loved to have been able to repair my paperback after its second outing - yes, of course, I read my books time and time again. What's the point of having stacks and stacks of books if you don't like to read them - repeatedly?!?

Mr. J. A. Bentley says:
Your criticism is harsh indeed I have never known a paperback fall apart after a few readings, I find them quite convenient to carry about with me rather than lug my boxed sets of Jane Austen works that very heavy, may I suggest the next time you get out of bed you try the other side.
