    Not at all Mr Boone - I vividly recall the days when even a single one of the books I'm now fortunate enough to own were far out of my reach, both financially and physically ... It's also a matter of progression, too, I feel, in that no matter how extensive your collection, or how much of your disposable income you're able to invest in its growth, there's always someone else that is doing it bigger, better and more expensively. And, you know something, Mr Boone, it doesn't matter at what stage your collection is at, it's all about the enjoyment you take, personally, from what is yours, big, small or somewhere in between. Sure, it's great to aspire to adding to your collection, taking it to the next level, posting it on a forum such as CD's, etc, however, the important thing is the simple joy of looking at what is yours, be it a single Golden Book or Dr Suess from your childhood, or one of ABE's Top 12 Most Expensive books sales for the month of whatever, to anything in between (which, I guess, is where most of us are at)

    So I know Squire was tempted to get a signed Embassytown (and as I said, they had one at Goldsboro, which is now gone) but they do have this:

    You know, I only have 1 UK edition in my collection, and it's a really cheap piece of crap that's printed on recycleable paper--it's a good thing I like the book. It was actually printed in Australia! (I picked it up in Perth back in '02).

    good point, but I don't have those yet (and the copy of Baudolino I have is a mass-produced trade HC, not a specialty press book.)

    Yeah, the weather has been crazy here as well. Had some snow even. But now it is sunny outside. A bit chilly though.

    Just be glad Grant's long wind was coming out of the computer, as opposed to usual. Poor Connie.
