    unless as a collector you decide that you want to leave it on for any number of reasons,
    Spoiler:
    such as the book is in a slipcase and the shrinkwrap isn't likely to cause any immediate damage, or it's a book that you are planning to flip and not really a part of your collection, (These two are the only reasons that I ever leave it on.)
    Spoiler:
    or you just prefer to leave it on because you think it's worth more that way, or it makes the book feel new, or because you've had that book that way for 30 years and you aren't going to change it now, or you just think it looks cool,
    Spoiler:
    or that's simply the way you like it, etc..
    Yep... I think that pretty much wraps it up.
    I will wholeheartedly agree with that statement..

    I would like to request that if you have a copy of The Best American Short Stories 2007, that you look at the inside front cover and first page.....and inside back cover and last page.

    I have several copies of this book, and notice where the cover and page come into contact with one another, there is browning. And, if something was in between the cover and page, that prevented the browning.

    Check it out.

    Just checked my copies and zero browning.

    Edit: I take that back, yes I see a light brown tone on the pages. I took into a different room with bright lighting.

    Stephen King's Battleground. Why is this book that has a lettered, artist signed edition, and a trade first not listed on here? Thanks

    Perhaps you missed this Catalog entry:
    Stephen King's Battleground - Lettered


    The other editions were left out as King didn't sign them and the book is primarily script related (although it does contain King's short story Battleground).

    I did miss that. Thought it would have been in the "Bs." Thank you

    Hi folks,

    does anyone have a first edition of Peter Straub's Julia, if so could you share the blurb that King wrote for that book?

    thanks a bunch!

    I don't uh, want this, but I've never seen this before. A stand-alone mp3 player designed like a paperback w/ the Misery audiobook & crappy earphones:

    Can't seem to find any other SK ones like this. Just thought it was interesting

    It is bizarre to me too. I am not the market demographic.

    Yes, hardback I presume. In ‘Meeting Stevie’ in ‘Fear Itself’ Straub describes how he first encountered King as a name on a blurb for Julia. That the blurb was the best of the lot. I presume at least a bit of that blurb was used. I may buy a first edition to see. They aren’t very expensive. But thought I’d ask here first.
