    Blackwater for the win in August. Fairly certain on this one.

    Not sold on Jaws but it states "Thriller" and "Beach Read" so beyond Jaws I would have no idea.

    The last one I have not a clue. Beloved, imaginative, and dark humor. I'm very much drawing a blank when combining beloved and dark humor.

    I’d agree, and August seems even more so, with McDowell’s BLACKWATER.

    Paul said he's happy to have books in stock so that newcomers to the site actually have something to purchase.

    I didn't go for the latest book either. Like you, if I want to read it, a cheap (or library) copy will do fine.
    I agree with Paul's thoughts as it's hard to grow the business if you have don't have any product to sell to new customers.

    I've seen some chat about how this isn't selling out in an hour. I still think that 500 copies in 24 hours is pretty darn good. Honestly, 1000 copies is a whole lot of copies to move title after title. Regardless of the quality of the production, $125 is a big chunk of change for non-diehard collectors.

    I almost said that "I never put one and the story together".

    There's a second video that just has the band. Which explains why the VHS release back in the olden times was called Two of One (because it had two videos for the song One.)
    I am sure I have seen the music video but have not seen the movie so it would not have clicked from that. The lyrics are spot on for the story though I just never put one and one together.

    Anyways, I picked up the AE of this one since it's at least a book I've read (not that that has stopped me on other Suntup books.)
    I did not realize Metallica's song One had anything to do with this story but once you mentioned it seams obvious.

    I have to admit to having never read it, but while it is certainly a book that I should -- and plan to, after this reminder of its lasting importance -- it's not a book I feel compelled to add a spendy volume of to my collection. I will, however, pick up a used pb of it to read the next time I'm at my local HPB.

    This is one of my favorite books. However I’m going to pass on this. Congratulations to those who are purchasing this one.

    Great book and love (love!) the artwork. Sadly bad timing for me but I like that the price is a little lower.

    Maybe this will be a book that lingers for sale for awhile. If not, at some point in the future, this will be something I will keep my eye out for on the secondary market.
