A lot of the attraction of a book comes from the design on the cover. When a new edition of a book comes out, it usually features a new cover. Have you ever re-bought a book you already own because you prefer the cover?

I have often been very tempted to do so, especially if the cover I have is not very attractive or in poor condition. I never have though. The only exception is when the new edition has extra content. For example, I bought Peter Pan and The Wizard of Oz a second time because the books also contained the prequel/sequels to the story.
My daughter is making me re-buy books at the moment because her favourite watercolour artist has just done the covers on my favourite author's books. If I wasn't going to read them again I wouldn't do it though.
I've never done this. I try to buy buy the books I want with the covers that I like from the get go.

Since I buy most of my books digitally, this is always a massive temptation. Unfortunately economics has kept me from doing so, but the new hardcover Discworld novels are something that have severely tempted me.

I have done so in the past, but with the prices of books these days, I have to make a choice on whether to buy a new book or one that I have already read but with a different cover.
I'd class that as a complete waste of money!

If I buy a book, which is very rare for me to do so these days, I buy it for its' subject, & therefore contents!
The cover I care nowt about!
