    pete0cha's collection

    Well, here we go! Due to popular demand (and to hush the voices) I present to you fellow forum members my humble collection thread. Before someone else says it, I'll say it: finally!

    Anyway, a brief intro before I begin. I used to have many, many more books. Encyclopedia sets, civil war books (and other history sets), some nice hardcovers of great classics in literature, and a wide assortment of fiction. When I moved to Europe from NJ some years ago, all of that went to charity. Only a few boxes came with me. But I've been slowly rebuilding the collection over the years. First I started with PB's (you'll see a fair share of those here), but then I decided that I want to gather a nice library so I started buying more HC's. One book at a time is what I tell myself. And over the years the collection will grow.

    Then I found CD while working on replacing my King collection of PB's with HC's. Then this forum was set up some time later. And the rest is histroy!

    Ok, so I figured I'd start off with my CD stuff, as this is the CD forum/institution?

    First up, my Shivers collection:

    For Pete's sake, it's about time...Pete! Shivers is a great way to start. (actually, I wish I had them all, not just VI).

    Forgot to add "it's about time" next to "finally".

    Well, that's it for now. More to come later when I get back from running some errands.

    These look nice all together. Glad to see the start of the collection!

    With more great artwork by Jill Bauman. This is my favorite piece. It's so detailed that it had me thinking it was a remarque for a bit!
