    Dave1442397's collection

    I just took a few shots of most of the bookcases in the house to start with. Many of these are in the attic, which is due for a good cleaning out.

    Almost every shelf is stacked two levels deep with books. Time to get rid of some of them, I think.

    You can see most of the John D. MacDonald books here, including all the Travis McGee books, of course!

    Most of the Harlan Ellison books are tucked away in the top left corner...I really need a couple of dedicated shelves for them.

    I bought one, got one as part of the first CD Book Club, and the third copy came in a grab bag.

    The first Book Club (years ago now) was always a good idea but at first it was too easy to get books you had already purchased. I think the first five books were dupes for me. It's never been an issue since, though - they fixed it!

    Yea I think the first book club was done before we had our current ordering system, which lets us easily send notes to people telling them not to order something because it's in the book club and what not. (way before my time)

    Edit: Great stuff by the way. Really looks like you need some more room... lol

    This copy of The Shining is beat up. I remember buying it in high school and reading it many times.

    This cover on The Stand is also a favorite. I read my original copy to shreds, and found this one at The Forbidden Planet in Dublin.

    Your pictures don't appear to have worked right in that one.

    I still can't see them in your quote. Let me see if I can clear out the file upload manager before I upload more.

    Why don't you sell them? or give them away No point in taking up space with 3. I know some people don't like selling their books but since theyre copies you got accidentally I don't see any point in keeping them. Looks like you need the space as well.

    It's not that I mind selling books, I just don't have the time and patience to bother. I need to do something, though, like make more money and move to a bigger house!

    If you want to send me your mailing address I'll send you a copy of the Non-Fiction...that'll free up a spot for The Twelve

    I'll try it again...not sure what's going on. I resized everything to make them small enough to post.

    Ok, on to the Stephen King books...

    The paperbacks were all purchased back in Ireland and before I had the money to afford hardbacks.

    This copy of The Shining is beat up. I remember buying it in high school and reading it many times.

    P1090387 (Large).jpg

    I know, this is a hardcover, but it snuck in here. I got this one at a funeral home in NY, for free!

    This cover on The Stand is also a favorite. I read my original copy to shreds, and found this one at The Alchemist's Head in Dublin.
