    I'm stunned by the $15,000 pricetag on the Roman Numeral edition. Perhaps that's not out-of-line with typical Suntup pricing on those ultra limited top-tier volumes, but, wow. I've been collecting and involved in the small-press scene for 35 years, but I can't even conceive of paying that kind of money for any book, let alone a long prose-poem title like DANTE'S INFERNO. More power to those who choose to and to each their own, etc. etc., but that's just so foreign to me I have a hard time wrapping my mind around that kind of purchase.

    Glad for those who picked-up a copy of The Divine Comedy, but it was a hard pass for me. Just not the type of book that I am looking for from Suntup.

    I will say that all the editions are incredibly beautiful and it is very clear that a lot of attention and love have been poured into these books. I'm curious to see how it'll sell.

    I will also say that this is the easiest "pass" for me ever. I understand the importance of the The Divine Comedy to literature, but I have absolutely no desire to read it.

    Congratulations to all who are excited about this edition and get a copy because it does look amazing.

    Caught Suntup's facebook live stream yesterday before the new book announcement. It sounds like this is gonna be a pricey edition.

    He mentioned that the community guesses haven't zeroed in on the right book yet. My guess is it's going to be The Odyssey.

    I saw this and have been very tempted to pick up a copy of the AE of The Butcher Boy. It would be a complete impulse buy, so I'm trying to hold off.

    Camelot also has copies of the signed 2nd printing of Caitlin Kiernan's From Weird and Distant Shores at $50, which is great price as well.

    I was surprised at how many limited and lettered editions were available for sale this past weekend. When was the last time, if ever, that a Suntup lettered wasn't sold via lottery?

    I kinda liked getting a new washer last year. The old one was from 2007. The new one (LG) comes with an app that tells me when the wash is done, and has some useful cycles. The end-of-cycle music is not loud enough for me to hear it with the washer being in the basement, so the app is handy.

    Honestly never read it, but there was no way I could justify the cost to have one.

    I can relate to this sentiment, of course I did just drop $240 at SubPress on two LEs so maybe I don't feel it as strongly as you.

    Although, I am in the process of finishing the construction of my custom bookshelves in the basement (I cannot wait for all of that to come together so I can show it off. For someone who's learned everything he knows about woodworking from YouTube, and last took a shop class in the very early 90s, I'm pleased with how things are coming together.)

    Looks like today's book is "Of Mice and Men". Anybody planning to purchase this? It's nice looking, but it's going to be a pass for me. Price is also a little higher than I would have expected, but I almost always feel that way when a book averages over a dollar per page. Maybe I'll try to grab a copy up the road on the aftermarket assuming it doesn't get even more pricey. It really is a great story!
    An easy pass for me. I know I liked the story when I read it (probably 30 years ago) but I have no interest in buying a special edition of it.
