I was at Barnes&Noble yesterday and purchased a copy of Piano Buyer. I actually had no intention of buying one, because I had already read the online version and had two editions of The Piano Book and many years of the Supplement.

But when I saw it was printed on such nice heavy and glossy paper(kind of like International Piano Magazine or Architectural Digest)it made a big difference to me. I assumed it would just be on ordinary paper like most paperbacks or inexpensive magazines.

It was much nicer than I expected.

I think it makes sense for the piano-obsessed PW member to buy a hard copy. Maybe I'm just technologically clueless, but I find it hard to navigate the online version, and I'm always accidentally turning on that zoom feature and not being able to figure out how to get out of it. I just like being able to flip through a real book and find what I'm looking for quickly and easily.
