    Well I've already browsed Betts, Ebay, and ABE. Didn't realize how much The Gunslinger cost(s) these days. Seemed not long ago I could score one (good copy probably some lean and DJ issue) for $700+ but it seems they have increased in value.

    Tell your wife that books are an investment! Look how the Suntup Misery has increased in value

    I'm saving my spending pennies for Dune, and possibly a Suntup AGE this month, depending on what comes along. My wife and I allocate a certain dollar amount per week as personal spending money, so neither of us cares what the other spends it on. I tend to buy nothing much except books and bike stuff, and the bike I bought in November reduced my stash to zero. Back to accumulation mode!

    I say it's your responsibility to stimulate the economy with your stimulus, so stimulate away!

    Not sure what I want to buy yet. Thinking it may be a deposit to a 1st 1st of The Gunslinger.

    You’ve come to the wrong place if you want a reasoned and practical answer to that question.

    If anyone happens to be hungover today I would suggest some water and a big plate of pork and sauerkraut.

    PSA. Very important information:

    Please be advised that tonight may include heavier than normal drinking. Be cautious. Be safe. Be smart.

    And most importantly. No drunk book buying.
