    So now I have two copies, the S/N HC

    ss1.jpg

    and the softcover.

    SS.jpg

    what to do with these things. The sizes (6 1/4" x 4 1/4" HC, 6" x 4" sc) don't lend themselves well to shelf presentation. Maybe if I could make them stand out in some way...

    Nice additions Squire Presentation wise, bit of a hard ask, due to the size (small than The Monk ) .. Could maybe display them on smallish dinner plates stands (have some at home like that) or, if room doesn't permit, maybe some sort of self constructed box, to lift these little beauties to the same height as the standard sized books surrounding them ???

    I'm leaning towards a wooden double traycase. Making the case the size of a regular book, maybe 9" x 6" is a nice idea. The dinner plate stand is interesting too. Thanks, Grant.

    I'll shoot you off a happy snap of one I have displaying an Ed Lee, sets it off not too badly at all

    Hiya Squire - This is one of the books I've employed a plate holder to display (just gotta love a book that comes with its own Rosary to protect one from evil whilst one reads it)

    Can't wait, Mr. Woot! But that was nice of them to include the rosary (I'm not Catholic, tho.)

    Yeah, at least I can take comfort in that it was a needless, rather than a needful, thing

    Another day, no package from Easton Press! Seriously, how long does it take a package to get from Conneticut to Missouri??? It was mailed on 08October!

    <sigh>

    So, here's something I picked up on Black Friday, not a book, but something for my collection.

    HP1.jpg

    Retail was $140 (without tax); got it for just under $60 (tax included). I stopped collecting the DVDs after #5; I'll need to do a 20-hour marathon one day for this; maybe then, the last two films won't seem so blah to me. Might even decide to read the books one day.

    Found this in the $7.99 discount rack ("like another can o' beans!") at Best Buy.

    I'll give it a try. Cheaper than seeing it in the theater!

    ...........


    I really want my Easton Press package....

    Try moving out of the US Squire and see what that will do with your patience!

    I can imagine! Well, you guys deserve to laugh at me for my inconvenience here; I hate to imagine waiting like you guys do for some items.

    Hey Squire, I like your idea of a wooden traycase to display the two books. Do you make your own or do you work with a third party, like Dick/Dolso?

    Anyway, post it when you do whatever you decide to do.

    I'm in California, Easton packages take forever. I don't know why, packages from anyone else get here in a reasonable timeframe.
