Not really.

Hardcopy versions come out first. Economics really.

Softcopy versions come out later as the hardcopy versions had sold as many as they could.

Hardcover books are more expensive but they're worth it in the long run (Economics LOL!) because they last longer than paperbacks. Which book store do you know of that sells SW books ah? I know of one in Toa Payoh that's got plenty of novels but I live in Woodlands and I don't feel like running all the way there for books all the time.

I know hardcopy books last longer. My problem is a problem with space. Smaller books are easier to keep.

Alright, thanks! (though I don't know if Woodlands have these stores, but I'll check it out)

True. The only reason why I prefer hardcopy books is because I've got a kid sister who'll bend the book spines of softcopy books everytime she reads them. With hardcopies, that's not a big problem.
