    Agreed....most likely, nobody here has that in their collection.

    Everybody in Calvin's Corner has a signed Revival, and at least ten of us have a signed Mr. Mercedes.

    And few if any (at this time) have an inscribed FK

    I would suggest you try not to extend the request time any more than you absolutely have to. Mr. King has been notoriously slow in delivering these things in the past, but he always delivers in the end. Your call.

    Though, if I win, I guess, I'd be changing my normal reading habits to get it done to get a good inscription. I'm looking forward to the book though, I enjoyed Mr. Mercedes a lot, and am excited to hear from Hodges again.

    Still double checking the numbers, but as of now we have less than 100 unique people in the drawing. There are ~500 total entries.

    Doesn't really matter. I'm finally winning this year!!!
    So, Faithfull?

    Spoiler:




    I see the decision has already been made, and no one is going to argue with Finders keepers, but has anyone suggested the winnder being able to choose a book out of their own collection? Is that something that could be considered for future years? (assuming Mr King generously agrees to continue this wonderful gift...)

    This is the way things used to be in years past, but due to a loss of a member's book, this practice has been changed to the current procedure, thereby eliminating the liability that Jerome might incur.

    And given the main theme of FINDERS KEEPERS, it's both funny and relevant to book collectors here !

    Huh. They complain about the Fundraiser, but when the "Grand Prize" is on the line folks sure come out of the wood work don't they? LOL
