    Strange Weather by Joe Hill
    Books a Million with publisher tipped in signature sheet:

    P1370107.jpgP1370108.jpg

    I promised myself that I will not go overboard with this one. This is my second copy so far. I have the ARC also. I also have an inscribed signed copy coming from Water Street Books. A signed Limited from Cemetery Dance also.

    Very nice adds, Martin! The Graveyard Editions are really going to be a nice set.

    I’m a fan of the Graveyard Editions as well. I’m looking forward to getting around to reading this one. It’s in the queue but down a notch or two.

    I haven’t picked up Gorilla In My Room yet, which I really need to rectify. Ketchum is always a great read.

    I bumped The Handyman to the top of the pile and have started it.

    Congrats, Martin! I missed out on the Bentley Little Graveyard Edition. Looking forward to seeing more pics of this series.

    I also could’ve sworn I ordered a trade edition of Strange Weather, but nothing g has arrived yet.

    I too am looking forward to seeing what they have coming for the Graveyard series. You may want to follow-up with who you ordered Strange Weather from. My Order from Books-A-Million was shipped on the 19th and arrived on the 24th. My copy from Water Street was shipped on the 24th and I should have it on Halloween.

    Great additions as usual Martin! I just love the way The Handyman looks, pure class. Is it real leather?

    I assume it is not real leather based on the fact CD did not advertise it as such. I can't tell the difference between that and some other books I have that are leather.

    Nope not real leather. I forget the technical term for the material. Real leather is fairly uncommon, because it's really expensive and it only comes in a very small handful of colors, usually blue, black, or brown.

    I never really thought of that but I believe all my leather bound books are Blue, Black or Brown.

    Probably "bonded leather" -- that tends to be the default material used. A more general term is "leatherette" but "bonded leather" is the true name of the material that consists of shredded leather scraps and leather fiber, the paste of which is then mixed with bonding materials, died an dried, then embossed with grain texture to appear like leather.

    I don't think we use bonded leather either, I think it's actually a "simulated leather", which is made out of synthetic materials. It's pretty much our standard, unless it's something that's cloth bound or a high end lettered edition.

    That's because the turntable needs to be set to 78, not 33.
