Is Darkness that Comes Before Hardcover Worthy? I rarely buy hardcover books. It is somewhat of a money issue but also I tend to enjoy reading paperback fantasy. There are some hardcovers I have and will buy. A Feast for Crows will be purchased Hardcover. Gardens of the Moon would have definitely been bought hardcover except I ordered the paperbacks from Amazon Canada months ago. I used to buy the WOT hardcovers when I was obsessed with the story. Needless to say I waited for Crossroads to come to Paperback and will wait for New Spring as well. So now I stare at The Darkness that Comes Before and I am tempted to purchase it hardcover and eventually get the whole series hardcover. Is it hardcover worthy? Does it or will it fall into the George RR Martin category of "most anticipated books" - at least for me?
