    I found a good price on the CD S/L of 121, but I also need to save money. But I could get the pb from B&N for around 5 bucks all told--seriously thinking on it.

    But Kin is an outstanding read!

    Oh, I will grab one eventually. It's great to be able to diversify on the authors I am reading, and I 100% can attribute that to finding the CD website/forums.

Will probably wait until I move somewhere else though as I will need to purchase another bookcase as well anyway since I am running out of room (less than a shelf left, lol) and have over 20 books on orde still!
    This is exactly the predicament in which I find myself. I recently reacquired three large boxes from my ex-wife's basement, and there are about 300 books in them, which would be fine if my shelves weren't already sagging under the weight of those I already have. But while good sense advises I hold off book buying until I find homes for the current titles, I can't seem to do it.

That also allowed her family to be able to keep their plans instead of cancelling at the last minute. Don't think either of us will forget that one, lol, was our first Christmas together. Was also the first (and so far only) King collection I have read. I'm sure if it wasn't for the circumstances surrounding it I wouldn't remember when it was I read that collection though. Had to guess on when I read a few books when marking them as read on Goodreads.
    That's one I read all the way through too. An excellent collection. I think I always end up reading King's stuff straight through. Same with Joe Hill's collection 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS, which was superb.

Would be finished by now, but took November off from reading pretty much due to NaNoWriMo and finally have started reading a lot again a couple days ago. Read a little when at my in-laws, but had finished part one of Kin at the end of Oct. so I figured I was at the perfect stopping point and didn't want to start and not continue the next part.
    I hope you dig it!

    Thank you, sir! And hey, if it saves money, I'm always down with the cheaper option!

    Well, as of now Powell's does not have your paperbacks. They did have a limited edition of Currency of Soul's for $25.00 that I almost bought. Ended up passing due to book condition. I would rather pick up a paperback then a beat up limited.

    Yeah, CD is good for that. I have discovered and become a fan of a lot of authors through Cemetery Dance, andit all started with King's Blockade Billy. My second purchase was either Simon Clark's King Blood (which was gutsy since I had never even heard of him before, lol) or Blatty's Exorcist/Legion book. Dicovered Brian Keene through my first grab bag.

    I discovered Burke through CD as well, though I didn't read a CD title of his first, found a good deal on a Turtle Boy HC. I still don't know how I got that lucky, don't think it was an eBay swipe, though it was from there.

    Yeah, I'd have passed on that too, especially as I'll be offering discount coupons on my paperbacks in the upcoming newsletter ;-)

    I think it's easier nowadays to get a copy of TTB. I just won a copy on eBay for about $15. A few years ago, I'd have been lucky to get one for ten times that. I think digital availability has affected the second hand value of the titles. Makes me feel bad for the collectors, but honestly I just want people to be able to read the books.

    I would agree, plus with the down economy prices likely dropped a lot. I don't remember right now what I got Turle Boy for, but I think it was around that, maybe even less. The cheapest I'd seen for that at the time was around $65-70, closer to $100 for one in new condition.

    I am a collector, but I got into the game late, so a lot of what I have gotten has been for pretty cheap. I'm also not a hard core collector as I will read most of my signed limited editions. I will never read my limited edition of the the 25th anniversary edition of It that CD did. I do plan to read my copy of the gift edition though

    I know what you mean. I'll buy signed limiteds, but I read them all, which devalues them immediately, but that's fine by me. I don't buy books with the intent to resell them.

    I buy limited editions for the stories and the production quality. I do not buy a book I would be unwilling to read. I am careful with my books no matter the edition because I want them to continue to look good and to last. Much to my wife's chagrin I have no interest in selling my books.

    Yeah, I'm starting to realize that "expanded distribution" must refer to online merchants and not brick-and-mortar stores, which does not thrill me.

    That's how I am too, which is part of the reason I am not a fan of the mass market books, especially paperbacks. I did buy a signed edition of the IT 25th anniv. from CD that I will never read though. Not when I have the gift edition of that as well.

    I read my gift edition of It and left my S/L/N one alone in its traycase. More and more I find myself buying s/l editions of books, then when I decide to read them, go out an buy a paperback version. I did this with Under the Dome and most recently American Psycho.

    I open up the trycase and look at my signed edition of IT, but that is about it. I haven't read my Gift edition yet, but I do plan to.

    Guess what? I just ordered the pb edition of the complete Timmy Quinn from amazon. Only $12.99. This is all the novellas. Does not include The Death of Timmy Quinn.
    So if anyone is looking for an inexpensive reading copy they are out there now. Also amazon still has The Turtle Boy for free.
