    And this is the weirdest book in my collection. It's a first edition married to a book club dustjacket that is personalized by King that I picked up for $10. I figured if it was a fake, I wasn't out a whole lot.

    Lately I've been reading Diana Gabaldon and George R.R. Martin, so of course I had to find 1st editions. I got to meet Diana this summer and she signed bookplates for all my books. Very nice lady. Sometimes I really hate my obsession with collecting books. It was easier when it was just King and Rice.

    My only pic with Mr. King. My husband always forgot to take them even though I told him it was his job.

    A very nice Rice collection. I hadn't heard anything about newer stuff maybe about wolves like you mentioned. I really, really enjoyed the first five or so vampire books and then, starting I guess with THE VAMPIRE ARMAND, I thought they got really boring. Looking forward to a new direction if that is what she is planning. Nice photos. Thanks for posting them.

    Here is the link for her new book coming out. I don't remember where I saw that she was going back to her roots.

    Excellent Collection Becca...
    That's quite the signature collection, have to admit I'm a bit envious.
    Hope to see more in the future.

    I thought those SODs were lettered because you have the Gift Editions placed with the book spines inward. Mine (well, the one I have) is facing the other way and that confused me. My normal state of mind anyway.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Please explain the bitterness regarding UTD. Is it because you don't like the the looks of the book or is it something else? I also got IT and I like IT a lot.

    i'm bitter because of the publisher. my under the dome was damaged and it took forever to get it taken care of. then the whole cluster with 11/22/63. i had one in my cart at 8:59 that day and then got shut out completely from the site after i tried to check out. i continually tried to call and email the company to try and help me secure a book. they refused to help in any way so i hate them all. i like to send them hate mail when i have nothing to do

    p.s not to mention tom gordon limited. i had to cancel that order due to the overwhelmingly high price.

    p.p.s. oh yeah and their quality control is crap.

    Yeah, I'm afraid I used up all my swear words for the week when trying to get the 11-22-63 signed book too. Ordering the UTD was a snap though and it came in brand new shape. Never did take the shrinkwrap off . I finally got an 11-22-63 and had to pay a little more, but I bought it from someone here and the transaction was more then satisfactory.

    i didn't know my dome was damaged until i unwrapped it. it was a publishing thing - the boards were messed up like something was spilled on them. i also wanted to make sure they included the signature page.

    glad you were able to get the new one. i was offered one but i'm just not willing to dish out the money for it. it's the principle. the sad thing is i still want one. it's what they should have done with dome - something different than the trade.

    I almost never take the shrinkwrap off my books (I know I know, shame on me), and now I'm AFRAID to take it off UTD and 11-22-63. I'll just leave it on and assume the best!
