    Picked up one of my 'holy grail' books yesterday, after being on the lookout for it for years - the 1984 Hill House Press limited edition of Straub's 'Ghost Story', in fine/fine condition. Will post some pics when it arrives.

    I just got back from B&N's Black Friday autographed book sale. There were a lot of them there (but not the 100's of authors the ad spoke of); nothing King-wise, but some popular authors like Janet Evanovich, David Mitchell (I might go back and get The Bone Clocks), Lee Child, Douglas Preston, Chuck Palahnuik. I passed those up. I picked a copy of the 10th ann. edition of American Gods. I have two signed copies, but this one was printed exclusively for B&N (thus it is a first printing); plus, it has two tip-in sig sheets--oops!--both signed. A lot of signed YA novels there that I passed up, too.

    Then I picked up a copy of 41: A Portrait of my Father by President George W. Bush, autographed by his father.

    I will have to take some pics and add them to my collection thread.... this weekend I visited my 2 favourite local used book shops. Stop #1 I was able to find a like new pb copy of Dan Simmons Song of Kali, which I had been on the hunt for for a while now. Stop #2 I found a 1st edition HC copy of The Stand. So, for $6.00 for both books...... worked out pretty good!

    My latest:



    And one of the pictures:



    Although this is one of the unbound proofs from Cemetery Dance, it doesn't have the "1st Proof" or "2nd Proof" printed on it. There was/is another of these on eBay that also didn't have the printing.

    Just one more of the CD unbound proofs to go now--Doctor Sleep!
