  12. Love to feel the pages with my fingers, ans the smell of either an old book or an new book. Also you never have to will run out of battery on your kindle app on your phone. BTW There is nothing like seeing your book on your dresser, and flipping to your FAVORITE part, and stealing a few minutes back with the characters!

  13. A signed paperback hold so much more meaning knowing the author signed it personally .. They are traditional and I'm a traditional kind off gal ...they want die on you in the middle of a good part ..they need to be on display !!! Oh and my granddaughter will have no interest at stealing it to play games !!!!

  14. The reasons I love real books --

    Did you ever have a bad day, and all you wanted to do was shut off from the world? Did you ever feel like you were alone, no one understood, no one could help, you just felt down? At times like this, the most perfect medicine and dose of happiness is walking into your room, getting a book of the shelf, placing yourself in your favorite reading spot with a nice hot drink and immersing yourself into another world. That is the most perfect feeling, being able to shut off from technology, not read on an ipad or iphone and having apps, messages, social media dinging every two seconds. A real book is like an island escape, a breath of fresh air, or stargazing. That is why I love books so much.

    I also love that you can see ink smudges from the printing press, or the worn look of books that have been used continuously, the smell of ink and paper is like heaven.

    I loved signed books because my family collects them. I also feel like a signed book is like a relationship between the author and the reader, whenever I go to a book signing and I get a signed book, it feels better then if a celebrity signed a napkin.

    I love Colleen Hoover, I cannot wait to read more of her books.

  15. I love paperbacks because they seem so much more personal than the ebooks. Something you can keep and cherish forever.
    I would love to have this series in paperback because i absolutely love these books. colleen hoover is a wonderful author. not to mention i completely love and adore Holder

  16. Well, first of all I really do like the smell of the printed books, you don`t really get the same feeling when you reed it on an ereader. I love how pretty and colourful they make my bookshelf! I`m a sucker for showing off my books. I`m very proud of them!
    I`d love to win the set just because the plot line is amazing, the covers too and I wouldn`t mind having them signed by the author. Plus, how awesome is the author for just publishing (and being extremely excited about it) a FREE book just out of love for her fans/readers?

  17. I love my kindle, but who doesn't love holding an actual book?! LOVE Colleen Hoover!

  18. I love paperbacks. Absolutely love. There is nothing like holding a book in your hands. ❤️

  19. i love real books because when im recovering from treatment they are something that is amazing to have and make me feel better. I love my kindle but on those days the paperbacks make me feel better and give me a smile when im recovering!!!

  20. I love print books! I prefer print over ebooks. I like to turn the pages and hold an actual book in my hands rather than rely on battery life and searching for the book I want to read!
    I would love to have signed paperbacks of Colleen Hoover's books to add to my collection! I would treasure to have this series signed as these are fabulous books! Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. I love paperbacks because you can look at the cover anytime you want and hold it in your hands :) It's easier to flip back a few pages to reread something in a real book. It's also easier to let people borrow them because I have no idea how to do it with ebooks lol. Paperbacks are just better in general :)
    I would love this series because I read Hopeless and adored it and now need to read Losing Hope, and then reread the whole series again!

  22. always been a fan of printed books especially paperbacks because it's easier to carry!, i love her books so much it gives so much emotions that i didn't know i have! XD

  23. I have always loved paperback books, but it's always so much easier, and more convenient to purchase them on the kindle and have easier access to them. But sometimes the books are SOO GOOD, and move you so much that you JUST HAVE TO have them in paperbacks. Have them nicely placed on my bookshelf, and having them there to read whenever I want...and extra bonus is if they are signed by the author who wrote such wonderful book

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Hopeless and LOVED LOVED LOVED both Losing Hope and Finding Cinderella, and would highly enjoy having these books to add to my paperback collection

  24. Paperbacks are just too special. I love E-readers but having your own collection of paperbacks, that you know you will always keep is much more personal, I mean, you know why you've kept each one of them...

    And Colleen's books? Man, I've cried so much reading all of her books (except Finding Cinderella. That one was just hilarious and I laughed out loud the whole time) So yeah...I love them and recommend this series to all my friends.

  25. I love signed paperbacks because I can display them on my special book shelf that holds only books signed by my favorite authors. They always make me smile! And I love the pretty covers!

  26. Paperbacks have become a luxury for me, I can't bring myself to purchase a book due to the price of them. Even though I love the smell of them, and nothing beats reading them. Most especially by an amazing author like Colleen Hoover, I absolutely love this author! I have no room to place them, so I keep a special drawer with all the signed books I've won. So when I need a little pick me up, I just go and open them and look at them. Okay, okay I sometimes hug them as well. I probably would sleep with them under my pillow, but I'm so afraid that I'll bend the cover. I'm a weirdo I know, but I can't help myself sometimes. I love books!

    Nothing beats having a paper in your hands. I love the way books feel, the way
    they smell (I love sniffing book pages) I'm a little weird like that. I love to
    have them on display to look at and touch whenever I get the urge to do so. I
    almost din't buy kindle because just the though of not having an actual
    paperback made sad. Nothing would give more joy than to have signed paperbacks
    by my favorite author. Colleen Hoover is absolutely brilliant. No one has made
    me laugh, smile and cry like Colleen with her brilliant writing. I can seriously
    say I have read the slammed series three time and the Hopeless series four time
    and so far I have read Finding Cinderella twice. It would be an honors to have
    Colleen's brilliant work on display in my house.

  28. I've mostly gone digital, but I do love physical books for some of the reasons listed above. They're pretty; you can't experience the cover art that authors debate over choosing when it's a black and white ebook. Plus signing a print book is drastically different than an authorgraph. Still somewhat neat, but it's not like people will be able to brag about their autograph years down the road. It's digital, it would make authenticating tough.

    Some (funny) reasons I'd love to have the books in paperback -
    1) With so much of my life being digital, I'd really love to kill a few trees for paper. We don't want to risk overpopulation!
    2) If I move again, I'd want to make sure some of my boxes are sufficiently heavy for the movers. You know, so it seems less like I'm being lazy and more like I really need the help to move around my stuff.

    Outside of my snarkiness, I'd really love to win. Best of luck to everyone!

  29. I love paperbacks. I love the feel of them and the smell of them. I like to collect paperbacks of my favorite authors and have them on my book shelve. I would love to win this collection

  30. I love the smell of paper, holding the book in my hands when I´m reading. I more enjoy reading psychical copies as an ebooks. And I love paperbacks more than hardbacks, they are smaller, easier to carrying. I would be really happy to own a whole series in paperback. Covers are beautiful, synopsis interesting and I can´t wait to have these books on my bookshelf :)

  31. Nothing can replace a real live book. The ability to walk around the book store and pull each book out to look at the cover and read the backs never gets old. Jennifer P

  32. I love paperbacks because I love the smell of papers. Because I'm a computer science student, I spend most of my time in front of a computer so it's really nice to have a break from electronic gadgets when I read paperbacks. Also, I can't explain the feeling I get whenever I look at them in my bookshelf (especially the signed ones, haha). Sometimes, they are like calling to me so I can't resist opening them again, just feeling the paper in my hands and rereading my favorite parts.
    It would really make my year if I have Losing Hope paperback just like Colleen Hoover made my year when she gave me a signed copy of Hopeless. I already have Holder's voice in my tunes (audiobook) so I'd really love to have the face of Holder in my bookshelf! <3

  33. I only really read print books. I have a nook and when I bought it I thought cool I can get my books instantly. But then I noticed the ebooks are practically the same price as print and sometimes more. I really like to keep my books and have built up quite a library of them. I just love the feel of the book and flipping the pages and everything about print books. And I would LOVE to get this series in paperback because I haven't read Colleen's series yet. I've been DYING to read it! I've read a lot of awesome reviews on her books. I cannot wait to start reading them!!

    Lisa Vazquezanzua

  34. I LOVE all of Colleen's books and this series is one of the best things I have ever read. I'll be doing re-reads for the rest of my life, I swear! I love paperbacks because I love walking into my library at home and just enjoying that nice book smell!

  35. Mikaella

    I haven't had the chance to read Colleen's books, though I do have book 1 in this series on Kindle. Nothing beats the feeling of actually holding a book in your hands C:

  36. There is just something about holding a your hands. Plus you can't beat the look of a full bookshelf.

  37. I just love seeing full bookshelves in my house. It makes me happy. And I LOVE Colleen Hoover but I don't have these on paperback yet. Yvonne Cervera yvonnelwdr88 (at) yahoo (dot) com

  38. I love being able to flip through the pages! There is just something special about being to pick up a book and read it over and over again. And is even more awesome to get them signed by my favorite authors!
    Thanks so much!
