    I ended up at a half price books and picked up a Postscripts 10 trade edition for $2. I also stopped by IKEA and grabbed another Hemnes bookcase.

    Last time I was at Book Loft, I found a bunch of signed books at below publisher's price and I also found some cheap GRRM limited editions at Acorn. Worth a shot.

    I'll be in NYC next weekend. I'll definitely go to The Strand, and possibly Argosy Bookstore. Are there any other bookstores worth checking out?

    Maybe you can keep an eye out for a B&N REVIVAL book jacket for Simon.

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    What RF said. SK Tours. He takes you everywhere and has good stories to tell.
    I live there so if you need any help or info feel free to PM me! There's LOTS to see! Except for bookstores. lol. With Bett's long since gone there's a BAM and a few pawn shops around the downtown area along with a decent comic shop. I've picked up a few things there but it's unlikely you'll find much in the way of limiteds or the like.

    Nice! I was stationed at Spangdahlem in the 90's. We used to go to Ramstein to Christmas shop and occasionally throughout the year. MUCH bigger BX! I can't recall if I ever hit that bookstore though.

    Paul and Debbie have an amazing collection. The books are in a converted basement. They have Open House one Saturday a month, but just call and make an appointment any day of the week and you will have the place to yourself. That's my preference. 85% are signed/limited books that do include the heavy hitters like King and Hill. Lots of smaller press too.

    Excellent! I'm heading to that neck of the country in Sept. Will definitely hit up these two! Thanks for the info.

    Along with Portland up above I'll be in Seattle as well if anyone knows of some good ones. I almost want to ask Tomas if he'll let me in to check out his collection

    Regarding Vermont and Western NH:

    I've got a Fri-Sun all to myself at the end of June and no particular place to go. I have most of the worthwhile shops in Maine staked out and a couple in NH, but I really don't know about any good shops in western NH or in VT. Any suggestions? I may just throw the tent in the car and start driving. Wouldn't be the first time.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've booked my trip for July and will be going on the SK tour. My work travels will be taking me down to Portland & Lewiston as well -- any bookstores there worth checking out?
