    That is awesome! My copy of that Dahl cost $20 and has a big dent at the top of the spine, and I had to argue the price down to 20. Great score!

    Gotta love second hand stores and yard sales. Great places to find some hidden treasures!

    Not Saturday, not a yard sale, but I had to post my finds from yesterday. I stopped at a thrift store and found these three, for $1.00 each. I was particularly happy with the Dahl!

    That's two of the issues that contain the original novellas that make up The Gunslinger.
    Fantastic find!

    I went to a local charity sale about two months ago and walked away with a first edition of Wizard and Glass (trade) and two signed copies of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell (a black DJ and a white DJ) for less than ten bucks total.

    Yard sales/charity book sale are great ways to find some hidden gems even. I haven't really found any jaw droppers (yet), but seem to always find a neat (at times very beat up) paperback at yard sales locally.

    LOL!! Embarrassing for me. For some strange reason I got that Bartleby quote in my head and associated it with rats. It's actually "I would prefer not to". I don't know, brain fart maybe, lack of oxygen to said brain, not enough caffeine, etc...... Anyway, yes, I agree, both good movies but ya forgot Graveyard Shift
