|The Sweet Life in Hard Cover?

Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.
Hmm I thought these were going to be Ebooks only.
Ooooh! I had thought they were going to be installments so maybe this is all of them in one book?
Awesome!! I think I would prefer to have all my Sweet Valley in printed format! Looks like the printing date is October this year :)
It looks like this is the full book, not the six individual installments that will first be released as e-books... at least that's what it sounds like from the book's description and the October release date.
This is clearly a ploy to get me and other die-hard Sweet Valley fans to:
a) buy an e-reader
b) buy the e-books because we JUST CAN'T WAIT TILL OCTOBER and don't want to run the risk of reading spoilers on the internet before then
c) buy the novellas (again), this time in hard copy, so it can be nicely stored and displayed on bookshelves alongside other SV books.
The worst part is, this is such a great scheme - it's Jessica Wakefield-worthy! - that I'll probably fall for it.
I'm pretty sure I will fall for it too. lol
Makes sense. Collect the money from the people who either prefer e-readers or can't wait the whole year for the book release, and then a month after the series finishes, release it in hardback, just in time for holiday gift giving.
Sigh. They're totally getting their money from me twice, even if this is as bad as SVC.
Is this the full book? thank u so much
