    I sit in awe of your eBay sniping prowess Mr Boone - well done indeed, and a sweet victory it was !!!

But I decided to go anyway. And What I saw made me want to cry. At least 2O CD volumes with mangled and ripped jackets. An SoD Vol.2 without a jacket and a scratched leather cover for $100. There was one CD volume that I didn't have that had a perfect cover, but I waited to see what I get in the F134 Grab Bag. Then I saw a number of sp volumes with ripped and mangled covers and I didn't feel better as much as just less sad. Anyway, I did find some things I wanted.

        A slipcased first print Plume pbk of The Green Mile.

        I have to spend some time getting the sticker off, but I know I can.

        Just FYI, the slipcased Green Mile is a book club edition. If you look closely, you'll not see a price on the book.

          Thanks, John. Its the only edition of TGM I have that is in one volume. I bought as a reading copy and because it had a slipcase.

            Found The Painted Darkness trade pbk in the mail today. Read as the PDF ebook CD offered in 2010, but never got the HC--stupid me. O well.

                  Glad to do it Brian. TPD came out at a time when I was still trying to decide where I was going with this CD thing.

                            Trade HCs I came home with after my weekly trip to B&N.

                            Railsea by China Mieville. Ndever read a young adult book by Mieville. He's quite a challenge for adult audiences, so I'm really interested to read this one. He's......out there, politically; but his books are fantastic reads.

                            Love the cover illustration by Mike Bryan.

                              Joe Golem and the Drowning City by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden. I missed the pair's Baltimore a few years ago, but I snagged this one.

                                Interiors galore in the book. Here's a few of the full-pagers.
