    Thanks Martin . I'll post as they arrive. I have a ton of what I call "Daily Drivers" down in the basement, mostly King, but figure everyone has seen those so no reason to post em.

    As beginnings go, that's pretty sweet. I myself would like to see your "daily drivers". I hate to speak for everyone else but we are book fans that is why we are here, to say nothing of how they are presented, shelves, bookcases, racks etc. Bring it on! Mike

    First of all guys I'd like to thank you each for encouraging me to post em. They have been boxed up in my basement for a few years since our last (and hopefully final) move. Although I did discover my son has been going into the boxes from time to time to pull a few to read. I actually found that very encouraging, considering all the distractions todays youth have, to actually take the time to read an actual book not on a screen. Nothing wrong with that mind you, just hasn't caught on with me yet. And thanks to CD for lighting the fire in me to read again with all the amazing projects that they do and to start my own collection late in the game. Anyway, hoping I'm doing this right.........

    Also while going through the boxes, I discovered a few holes in my King collection of the trade stuff. Some I found out my son had as stated above. Maybe my daughter has some at her place too. If not, I guess they got lost in all the moves :-(. Here's the unfinished room I like to keep "the good stuff" in one of these days. Attachment 17077

    Yea, it's all over the place Martin. Probably like my collectables will be lol. Not sure on A Time to Kill. It doesn't say on the copy right page. 'Salem's Lot Illustrated Edition is a first edition if it's of any significance.

    Does the copy of 'A Time to Kill' say "A Novel of Retribution" on the cover?

    Thank you. It's by no means collectable stuff but they have gotten me through many long nights back in my guard duty days. That and Art Bell.

    Oh I can only image Martin. Carrie is super nice even at the gift edition level. I hope to get my hands on CD's "IT" someday for sure. Of any edition.
