    Love the finds at the thrift stores/used shops....

    I'll be stopping at some point this weekend and see what I can find.

    Just got it! Other than the crease on the front cover, it's immaculate:

    You got that right! But I didn't pay that much given the condition.

    My pre-ordered signed copy of Neal Stephenson's Seveneves arrived today! It's next on the reading pile once I'm done with The Deep, by Nick Cutter.

    I picked this one up as well; received it a few weeks ago. I've never read this infamous work, so this'll be a nice way to (carefully) read it for the first time.

    Just received a copy of Floating Dragon. I've never read it so I'm really looking forward to it. It's a nice book CD really did a nice job with this. Also picked up Daemonologie of King James.

    Nice adds. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up a lettered edition of Floating Dragon when it was announced. It's a great book so count me as jealous! ☺

    Thanks guys. But now I'm really falling behind on my TBR pile. I do really admire everyone's collections in the other thread. Had me drooling on some of the books you guys have.

    Today I was greeted by a very strange - but somehow official - looking package.
    IMG_7226.JPG

    It could have only been one thing - my fancy Folio Society edition of Dune!
    IMG_7227.JPG

    (I'm assuming that I somehow got a 1st edition since there is no edition number on the copyright page.)

    It's a pretty nice looking book and I love the work. I'm not certain if it's worth the price being charged, but hey, it's only money. (Besides, I've purchased 5 covers of the new Jem comic for the girlfriend, so it balances out, right?)

    Congrats on the purchase of Dune. It's one of my favourites. I own several books from Folio and a couple of their "Fine" editions as well as several of their LE's and they are all top quality made from the best materials IMO. Their customer service is impeccable. Did you also get a poster with this? For me the price is too high (maybe due to the Herbert estate) so I'll wait until it goes on sale or maybe obtain it through the secondary market. Although I am still tempted to get this and they just came out with A Wrinkle In Time with an introductory price of 10% off so who knows, might just do a payment plan or something lol.

    This was my first Folio edition book. There are few others that I would like to own, but they aren't must haves.

    I did get the poster! I actually thought that they had forgot about it (and I thought what the posted was packed in was just a spacer chunk of cardboard - nope) but they packed it. Glad I didn't freak out. The GF loved the bonus free journal and note cards (I asked if she wanted them when I ordered the book and she wasn't too impressed and said she would pass. But she still took them.)


    Here's something that I picked up today - not books but equally fun (and hopefully books won't become as rare and/or niche as these) - while camping last weekend, I got to talking with a friend of a friend and somehow we got onto the subject of LaserDiscs (anyone else remember these?) Long story short, I was offered of these for free which I picked up this morning:

    There are approximately 120 movies; some I already own, but most I don't. And they all seem to be in pretty great condition.

    Plus he gave me a player which I just fired up to see if it even works. Which it does AND it's a double sided player too - that was a surprise. You kids and your DVDs and Blurays don't know how good you have it.

    Nice, I ordered the Folio Dune as well and also received the poster.
    I'm a sucker for any nice editions of Dune and thought they did a great job with this one. It's nice to see some new artwork for a change.

    I've never read DUNE but have intended to for a very long time...am thinking about picking up the B&N leatherette edition...perhaps not quite as nice as the Folio edition (which I did give some thought to) but still nice, I think, and considerably cheaper.

    Dune is one of my favorite books. Not a fan of the "series", I really think it was meant to be a stand alone. The 2nd and 3rd were OK, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, but neither had the punch, the thrill of Dune. I re-read every few years. Dune, The Stars my Destination, Starship Troopers, these titles set the bar for Science Fiction for me anyway. Great Book, enjoy it!
