    Thanks. I am generally not a completist either. Completing the King trade hardbound set actually became a thing when the King cases were set up. My wife asked if I had everything and I explained that there were a few I did not have. She could not understand how I could have this wall of books yet have a few not included. With that I began looking casually to complete the set. With the bookcase resets I am doing I decided to see if I can finalize this within reason and it worked out.

Like you, I don't actively seek out the older King books that I'm missing but will pick some up from classified ads now and again on the forums. Most of my passion these days is towards Hill collecting. Not as valuable but way more affordable.
    I am definitely more focused on Hill these days. I actually have my Lake Champlain sheet out for framing right now. Have two possible places to hang it when I get it back, it has been in a tube since it was released.

It appears my 1st/1st of the Green Mile hardcover is on a box somewhere, other than that one my cases are set-up. I moved the Dark Tower books to another case and I have room for 3 or 4 more books by King before I have to start storing them in other cases.

    Unfortunately My Pretty Pony is just a tad too tall for these cases so it is with the Doubleday CD books.

    Most welcome. I meant to type if you're "not" too picky. I'd say those books of mine are probably VG+ or better. I still need Carrie, 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, the original The Stand just to name a few.

    Thanks. These were 'good enough' for my needs. Nice to have the King Trade Hardbacks set complete. I will list out what are not 1st/1st next and then gradually replace them.

    Nice pick ups, Martin. They can be had for sure if you're too picky about condition for reasonable prices. I still need to add a pony back myself.

    So I have been re-organizing my bookcases. I have been missing 5 King Trade Hardbound books. I periodically look for copies but have made no real effort in a while. So I decided to see what I could find online and secured all 5 for reasonable prices. All but one are 1st/1st and the one that is not is 1st/3rd.
    Here is what I added:
    • The Dead Zone 1st/1st
    • Danse Macabre 1st/1st
    • Different Seasons 1st/1st
    • The Bachman Books 1st/3rd
    • My Pretty Pony 1st Trade Printing
    All are in pretty good shape for their age.

    I went in thinking there was a good chance I would get a duplicate so I was very pleased to get one I did not have!
