    $11.00 for me would have a trip to the movies. But not in 3D or IMAX. Nice haul, Mike.

    Not bad for $11. Love yard sales and flea markets.

    Yard sales are a great place to find books for cheap. Last summer I checked out one that had probably at least 10, brand new condition Koontz books, for $2 ea I think.....I didn't grab any though.

    This weekend I brought in some books to a local used book shop and got credit for them and used that to buy: Storm of the Century by King (it's a screenplay book???), picked up what I think is 1st ed hardcover of Insomnia also, and Misery.

    I found some more books I probably running down there today after work and see if there is anything else that tickles my fancy. Anything they don't buy I will probably try to sell at a yard sale, or donate.

    Yes the Storm of the Century is a screenplay book. book It was sold through the Book of the Month Club. I don't think that there was a regular trade edition published. It is just as hard to read as it was to watch.I mean that in a good way.

    It's pretty crazy now in that I've accumulated so many books the last couple weeks (not including the ones my wife grabbed - a bunch of Robin Cook hardcovers, plus Tell No One by Harlen Coben, and Betrayal of Trust by J A Jance), plus with more to trade in and the pre-orders I have...... LOL. Plus the 2 I just ordered of AbeBooks!

    Good thing is though, I can keep my credit on file at the used book store for future, and I have some hard to find titles I am looking for, and holding out hope they may get them. The owner told me they take in about 500 books/week (I think), or maybe it was per month.

    If I remember correctly the hardcover of Storm of the Century was a book club edition and a paperback with the same trim size was the trade edition.

    Ah. I did not know that there was a paper back edition of this book. Still a creepy read.

    Never seen a paperback edition of Storm of the Century, didn't even know there was one. I picked up a copy of the HC edition at a Half-Price Books store that was a couple minutes drive from where I used to live. Haven't read it yet, and don't know if I even will, but I wanted to get it since it was in like new condition and King HC I didn't have yet, lol. Got Secret Windows from the same location I think, which was another Book of the Month Club release. Never saw that title at a Half Price after that, and every time I have randomly seen in on eBay it was being sold for a good amount more than I paid for my copy (somewhere around $6 I think). That was another one I had to get because it was a King HC I didn't have, lol. I think I am more likely to read that one though, as I don't know how much I care for reading screenplays.

    Woo hoo! I got my Cemetery dance collectors set #2 in the mail today! Don't know which book I'm going to read first, but I'm leaning towards Jack & Jill.

    I have a bunch of books I want to take down to that shop again, some are university text books, but they gave me credit for one last time, and probably just keep my credit on file. There are some harder to find books I am looking for - even if they are pb and used. As long as they are in decent shape - but again, hard to find it seems.
