A Countdown of

The 5 Books You Want a Physical Copy Of

(Optional Corny Valentine's Day Subtitle: Let's Get Physical!)

5. Poe by J. Lincoln Fenn
This was an entirely unexpected gem- and one of the funnest Halloween reads I've devoured during that season. And also, there's a picture of a mansion on the cover- it simply must grace my shelves, someday.

4. My Man Jeeves (Jeeves #1) by P.G. Wodehouse
I had such fun with these short stories- I would rather have my very own Jeeves (and perhaps a Wooster too), but I will settle for a physical copy of this book.

3. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
I own the ebook (free) edition of this- but I really, really, really, really would like a physical copy of it to grace my shelves. Particularly with a beautiful cover like this, or an older hardcover edition.

2. Master of Crows (Master of Crows #1) by Grace Draven
This is the first and only romance I've rated 5 Stars- it's safe to say I loved it, so it's no wonder I crave a physical copy of it. And since the cover is also one of the best you'll see in romance (despite having the worst cover to begin with)... Yeah, I think I'll be getting this someday.

1. Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive #2) by Brandon Sanderson
The book I would most like a physical (preferably hardcover) copy of is this book- mostly so I can see the illustrations without squinting (and, you know, I kind of loved it too). I may not be able to pick it up as easily as the others (it has 1087 pages), but I'd still love to own it.

Which books do you want a physical copy of?


  1. This is a great feature! So many of my blogging buddies are Brandon Sanderson fans and I have yet to read any of his books. I do have an audio book of a novella, but right now I don't recall its title. I am going to start collecting the Discworld books in paperback, so any five of those would do. I don't usually buy paperbacks, but something about Pratchett's stories screams PB. :)

    1. Sanderson has pretty wide appeal- most people love his Mistborn series, it seems, but I prefer the Stormlight Archive books/bricks. I just got the first book of the Discworld novels (but as an ebook, naturally), and I'm excited to read it. It's funny- there are some books I'd rather have the paperback edition of as well- mostly urban fantasy titles, though.

  2. How do you skyrocket your book sales without a bigger platform, email list, paid traffic, or PR?

    It starts by understanding how your readers buy books today, and how you can reach them (without a huge marketing budget).

    I've found something that can show you how.
