    I felt bad. So until Night Shift arrives, this will be my shelf:

    Ah, Jeff, I see you're one of *those* people, hm, with your dustjacket spines turned to the back and the gilt titles facing outward?

    Probably one of those people who have the toilet paper come underneath the roll rather than on top, too, I bet.

    I'm with Jeff on this one. The few slipcases I have are all positioned this way. I figure it helps protect the DJ spine from sun fade.

    So that is how it happens. I've always wondered.

    My rule: if the slipcase spine is blank, then show the spine of the dust jacket. But if someone has worked incredibly hard to adorn that slipcase spine, then show it to the world AND deliver maximum protection for your books while you're at it. Win win.

    And I don't bother with toilet paper. I only use bidets. Or a garden hose.

    It's been fun! I really expected King to tweet in response "What is this shit? My lawyer will be in touch."

    Congrats, Steve! I grabbed one also. I told myself I was going to stay away from GEs but this one is just too nice pass up. And I pretty much still pick up GEs/AGEs from other publishers so

    My order for the Sleeping Beauties Gift Edition arrived earlier this week. I did not realize that the book was oversized, it's huge and a beauty too. Thanks Dan, Brian, Mindy and Rich.

    Finally received my copy of the gift edition and have to agree with all of you. What an awesome looking book and slipcase! The slip case reminds me very much of the one on my copy of the Little Sisters of Eluria. Needless to say, I have shelved them near each other and they look great!
