    Good luck! We got two big snow storms on Christmas and this week and are now supposed to get another storm tomorrow which they say will turn to rain Sunday so they're afraid it's going to cause flooding. Right now it's -9F but by Monday I may be swimming to work.

    Jealous of some of those books in the shelf, especially that Fritz Lieber MotWT set. How long does it take for one to stop kicking themselves for missing out on a book?

    On another note, what slipcase are you using for Out of the Dark? Is it custom?

    I know that feeling LOL!! The slipcase isn't custom, in fact it's too deep, but it pretty much works. A few years ago Jerad sold a bunch of extra slipcases, they were very reasonable, so I picked up a few. They've come in pretty handy.

    Thanks! I've got the other Woolrich set in a different bookcase. See, I've got to get organized and insured. Does anyone have a separate insurance rider on their books?

    I'm thinking the same thing. I'm going to check with my insurance company and let you know what they say. Found this article. It's about 10 years old.

    Most insurance experts do not recommend that you rely on your homeowner’s insurance to protect your collection against damage or theft. Dorit Straus, the worldwide fine arts manager at the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, says, “Collectors need to look at [book] values just like artwork."

    Collectors should insure their books under a separate fine arts policy or a rider on an existing policy that adds specific coverage for materials like books, manuscripts, and maps. Never assume that homeowner’s insurance provides full coverage for a collection.

    General homeowner policies provide market-value (the actual cash value) coverage for items in the home, but not always replacement value. The cost of a basic policy can be relatively inexpensive. “If a collection is worth $3,000 or more, it should be insured under a separate policy,” said Dan Walker, owner of Collectibles Insurance Agency. The estimated premium for this level of coverage could cost as little as $12 annually.

    A good fine-arts policy usually does not require a deductible, provides ninety days of reimbursement coverage for newly acquired items, and covers many more kinds of losses than a standard policy. Most homeowner’s policies won’t pay for books ruined by broken pipes, leaky roofs, or earthquakes.

    Here are some tips:

    Know what you have and have some idea of what your collection is worth.
    Start with an inventory that includes basic information about each book - author, title, edition, and condition.
    Take photographs of individual books or shelf-by-shelf pictures.
    Keep a file of sales receipts and dealer and auction-house descriptions of purchased items.
    Monitor values and increase your policy's limits from time to time.

    In the event of damage to the collection, Straus said that most insurance companies will hire a specialist to make an evaluation. “Time is of the essence when dealing with damaged books.”

    It really makes sense. I need to get my books better organized first I think. Too many books, too few book shelves.

    Well, I won't be trying to sell more books for a while due to the flooding situation here in Yosemite. I'm viewed as essential personnel since I roll the date in the computer system and I can stay in a nice hotel room. I'll be here through Sunday-Maybe leaving on Monday if I can get out. My room is in a two story building so my silly books are safe. For info. about what is going on here check the Weather Channel.

    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.
