Are there any?

I'm sure the only differences are the fact that a) one's hardbound and one's paperback and b) the price.
I'm a paperback kinda girl, so that's what I bought and I heart cheaper books Grin
But I'm sure the hardbound would put up with more wear-and-tear, so it's probably just preference Smiley

One of the other posts in this section talks about the soft-cover books breaking at the binding???

I wouldn't be too shocked about the paperback binding breaking.  It's pretty common in paperbacks... the problem of a so-called "perfect binding."  Sewn bindings will always be more flexible than glued bindings.

I haven't had any problem with mine breaking, or even acting like it is going to break. I have had it, I don't know, two weeks maybe? Something like that. Although I haven't really abused it, from what I was reading it happened to those people almost right away. And apperantly it had to do with the really cold weather. So just make sure you aren't doing it outside I guess. It never gets that cold here I guess, I've never had any book that wasn't 15 years old break on me.

Is there anyone who has ever actually SEEN these books in hardback? Are they special order only?

I ordered my copy from the CraftersChoice bookclub -- the price was great, about $12.00, I think, and it was not special order.  It came quickly and was the hard back version.  Very nice quality and very heavy.  And I have had no problems using the patterns or just reading in it -- the binding is holding up fine.
