    Wow, looks great for something over a hundred years old! And those HP endpapers on the limited are really nice! O

    Oh, and I think you can upload pics directly from your computer to the forum and just have them in the thread right away.

    I tried but I was having issues doing so. I'll try again and see if I can get it to work.

    I think I got the pictures posted so they show up a good size and don't have to be clicked to be viewed at a larger size.

    This book belonged to a friend of my great great uncle who passed it on to my uncle and then to my family. It's called Why Winners Win and it is a sports psychology book. It was published in 1927.

    First printing of the The Silence of the Lambs. Based on the condition of this book, I think its an unread copy or whoever owned it before me took really good care of it.

    This book is called Styx by Christopher Hyde. Its a good book. I wouldn't consider it a collectible but I like it. Most of the books I read are more recently published where people use iPhones and laptops frequently, where this book was published in 1982 and one of the characters is a journalist who carries a portable typewriter around with him. Kind of interesting to see how far we have come technologically since the 80s.

    Thanks. Compared to some of you guys, I'm a lightweight collector.

    You have some real gems in your collection. This is not a lightweight collection.

    Fever Dream by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child with a gift case. Based on the threads relating to the CD versions of their books many of you haven't read much by them. They are really good. The Pendergast series, of which Relic is the first, is really good. Gideon's Sword and Corpse are a new series. Sword was good but I haven't got to Corpse yet.

    I also have similar editions of Kill Shot by Vince Flynn and In My Time by Dick Cheney
