    Default THE BILL HODGES TRILOGY BOX SETS ALL 1st EDITIONS?

    Turns out all sets are not created equal.
    Some sets are all 1st editions & others are mixed.
    1.Where did you get your set?
    2.Did you get all 1st editions?
    Also TARGET ads show black dust jackets on the sets.
    YES or NO?
    also according to the internet these TARGET sets are NOT for sale in the stores.
    YES or NO?

    I have one on order from CD, but went ahead and ordered the Target version in case it is black. I will just return it if it comes white.

    I'll report my findings when I receive it.

    I'm going to return mine as well now that I know there are sets of all 1sts and replace it. I'll continue this until I have a full set of firsts although it seems like MM is the only one this happens with so hopefully it will happen the first time around!

    Well I was honest and told them that I wasn't pleased with the packaging. A rather heavy boxed set with just your typical amazon air bubbles. The slipcase did have a minor imperfection. Prime members get free 1 day shipping on this so they ordered the replacement yesterday and it arrived this morning.

    To be honest, Amazon customer service will usually bend over backwards for you. I doubt I had to give them much of a reason to get a replacement anyways and that kind of customer service does pay off for them. At least that has been my experience with them.

    The same as Aron, the packaging. The slipcase was a tiiiny bit bumped(which really doesn't bother me at all but it's a good excuse). I figured what the hell, I'll give it a shot because you're right, there is no guarantee of a first MM this time either.

    Edit: I'm not really going to do this a million times. I have a first MM so it's all good but it would be nice to have the set be all firsts. If it's in the cards fine, if not that's fine too

    I'm interested to see if the Target version is black as well but I'll stick with the white regardless. Unless of course Target ends up being all firsts

    I wonder what Amazon does with all of the opened returned books?
    Do they get bulk remaindered to a 3rd party?

    EDIT:

    I think many items end up on Amazon's warehouse:

    My US copy of End of Watch arrived dinged, Amazon sent me a replacement and told me I didn't need to return the original.
    "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
