    My CDCC swag arrived yesterday.

    The mug arrived safe and sound and looks good as well. I do wish it was a little bigger though. I have "acquired" some nice solid glass mugs from a local chain here - The Ram - that I love.

    At first I was a little worried about the sweatshirt because I thought I ordered a larger size that I wear now (I've been running again and getting back into shape) but either I ordered smaller, or a mistake happened. Either way, I got the right size and love how soft it is on the inside. Plus the back quote is PERFECT right considering that I have a ton of books on the floor because I don't have enough bookshelves.

    Great job, Jason on getting into shape! I figure round is a shape so I'm content with that at the moment

    Thanks! I used to run A LOT, but an injury that never got better changed that. Finally started changing some things and picked up the running again. Not as fast as I used to be, but that's what added pounds and years do to you . . .

    I can't imagine not having my half price gift certificates.

    Love it when a plan comes together. Congratulations on being able to get back into shape. With two hip replacements in the last four years I can relate.

    The new ones work a lot better than the old ones did though!

    Well that’s good! The alternative doesn’t sound pleasant.

    That half price gift certificate puts a lot of gas in the tank.

Or new King project. Or a non-Little Graveyard Edition.

    Take up cycling! I ride with a lot of guys in their 40s and 50s who used to be runners, but their knees just can't take running any more.

    For those who purchased it, here's a small update on the artwork grab bag. We're starting to put these together now, but they probably won't actually start shipping until Monday. They're a nightmare to pack and the box I had to order is way overkill (so look forward to that). It'll be shipping in 2 packages. A tube that houses the poster and 2 of the larger prints and a box that has everything else. As per our usual MO if the portfolio you are getting is one of the Doubleday Years portfolios, the artwork will be outside of the folder to protect the pockets of the folder from ripping during shipping. Hopefully there are no damages as I won't be able to provide replacements if there are, as I pretty much will have next to no artwork left once this is done. Hope you guys like them it's a really good group of stuff.

    Cool! I don't have any of the portfolios so I know that is new at least.

    Never ever ever look at the credit card statements.
    To help with keeping within my budget, I use my Paypal account. I load money in there every month that I can spend on books. Now of course if something REALLY special comes out that I need to break the budget, then I float it by the wife. These two things keep me in check. If not, it would be a dangerous, dangerous thing.

    I tried the CDCC once-one year. It was okay, not enough to lure me back. ~Cap

    I don't use my credit cards much for these book purchases. Sometimes I do, but I avoid that. I'm so glad I learned early on about the "dangers" of credit cards. Like Sock Monkey, I use Paypal and have more than enough there which if I wanted to I could easily reload. ~Cap

    Hi, Jeff. I'm also a non-recovering CDCC member. Thanks for sharing with the group. Remember, this is your safe place.

    I missed out on today’s offer. I would totally be on board if more of the books offered were in another grab bag!

    Hi I'm still a newbie here and so far haven't had much luck when it comes to keeping tabs on things I've orderd. Couple of questions if anyone can help me;

    1. I ordered The Stand special Cemetery edition book and I've been looking all over the site and the forums with no signs of any updates on production or ideas when I might expect it to ship. I am concerned as I've had at least one thing which was shipped and never arrived until I had it reshipped, so I want to ensure I am watching when to look for this book.
    2. When we sign up for the collectors club, were we supposed to have something sent to us such as a shirt or coffee mug or something? I saw someone post about this and I've never received anything, so again just feeling like maybe I'm missing something I should be following up on. It's not very clear if this is a regular thing or was just something sent to members in the past.

    Thanks for any light which can be shed on these items, appreciate it!
