Yes. I picked up the Del Rey Robert E Howard reprintings, as well as George R R Martin's Game of Thrones. (Okay, my wife actually owns that last one but...well, I could bludgeon a man to death with that book.) Ditto Clive Barker's Imajica, for the same reason.
I like the quality of a well made hardcover, but some books are rather...inconvenient due to their bulk or weight. Perhaps someday Christopher Tolkien will get over himself and we'll see a legal electronic editon of LotR you can actually carry without getting a hernia.
