    And now what is possibly the jewel of my book collection. Is this better than my Jim Lee doodle of Elvis? My various Neil Gaiman doodles? Even my signed Doctor Sleep (thank you CD!)? Quite possibly.

    Jason had a contest to win an edition of Eleanor that he painted a beautiful watercolor painting on the book's boards. I entered the contest and then also asked my girlfriend to as well. She promptly asked her best friend and her sister-in-law to enter as well. Why not?

    Well, long story short - I didn't win. My her friend did!

    I'm pretty stoked about this. Too bad the painting is hidden under the book's jacket . . .
    Glad someone here got it. I entered as well. I also received my UK edition of Eleanor. Love the artwork on that one.

    Thanks guys, I'm pretty happy with it. Back in January CD announced some new black slipcases they were making that would fit multiple books and I ordered a couple. Relic was one of the books they had listed that the slipcases would fit, and they didn't list Dark Advent but that seems to be the same size, maybe just a tad smaller so I got one for each of my limited editions.

    Ready Player One is nearly the exact same size, so when CD ships these I'm going to check if it fits and if so probably order one more. If it fits I'll post a pic in case anyone else wants to protect theirs. Will also confirm Dark Advent.

    My copy showed up as well. I love the artwork in it, along with the bonus materials. Really wish that The Martian contained something similar - it seems very basic. RPO looks great on my shelf!

    A buddy of mine won this in a raffle the other day and decided to give it to me since he knows I'm a huge Batman fan:

    Nice add, Andrew! Can't believe it's been that long since the movie was released. Wow! Feels like only yesterday.

    Upgraded to traycases from slipcases for my gift edition of Riding the Bullet and my Remarque gift edition of From A Buick 8:

    Ready Player One is one I have wanted to read for a while now. Any thoughts by those who have read it?

    Also - some of the new things you guys/gals come up with are mind blowing!

    Nice looking traycase, Brian, I like it. Can't see the pics in the next post, though. Clicking them says 'invalid attachment.'

    TJ I thought Ready Player One was an excellent read, especially for those submersed in the early video game culture. I did a short write-up on it a while ago in Book Reviews if you'd like to check it out: http://forum.cemeterydance.com/showt...ll=1#post75286

    Your enjoyment is going to depend entirely on your tolerance for "HEY REMEMBER THIS THING FROM THE 80s?" If that doesn't wear thin, and you enjoy a story bursting at the seams with such references, you'll enjoy it.

    That's a great way of putting it. Without some sense of nostalgia for the music, movies and games of that period I'm not too sure how the book would read.
