    Default Book Collection/Member Appreciation: Brian861

    Jerome kindly archived my first collection thread due to me having to sell off quite a bit of it. In full disclosure, I'm still able to gather the small everyday things (the cheap stuff) or hang on to the things that really aren't worth taking the time to sell as they have little resell value. For those of you that have purchased my valuable stuff, I can't express enough my appreciation for you. It truly helped my family and I in a great time of need. It has also helped me refocus on what is most important and to refocus on where I want my collection to go in the future.

    With the gift that my Secret Santa purchased for me, it really inspired me to do something a little different with my collection thread. To show my appreciation for my fellow members who have taken the time and effort to obtain things for me or have offered them in trades, other sells, etc.

    Dedicated to you:

    The WHSmith copy of TBOBD along with the UK copies EOW were obtained for me by our favorite goblin, Simon. Simon also held onto the copies of EOW until Jeff was done with the slipcases, shipping them all together. Thanks, Simon!

    The infamous UK CTCC anomaly/derailed copy provided to me by Eric for the retail price plus shipping cost. Thanks, Eric!



    Edit: So tempted to look underneath the sticker but just can't bring myself to do it.

    My wife's family being of German descent; I thought it would be pretty neat to maybe start collecting German SK copies. Not sure if/how far I'll continue this pursuit but thanks to Frank for sending this over to me. Thanks, Frank!

    Gifts from my SS to include my first SK sig. Plus a fully paid Remarque to be done by Chadbourne inside of Revival with postage paid both ways. Book is en route to Glenn as we speak. I'll share once it returns back to me. Thanks, SS!

    An awesome surprise from Chris when he revealed this little nugget! I waited til it arrived before I saw it. Chris went on to obtain a copy for himself at a later signing. Thanks, Chris & Julie!

    great thread Brian, and my pleasure as always.

    Oh and I hope to get the package in the mail tomorrow!
    "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

    I forgot to put this one up but I believe Jon helped me obtain several of the UK copies shown. I know he won a few UK eBay bids for me back in the day; just not sure exactly which ones. Thanks, Jon all the same!

    Looks like you may need another copy of the U.S.A. REVIVAL check your back cover & see if it says bookstore or Barnes & Noble.

    Spoiler:
    Hope it says Barnes & Noble...Because bookstore should be easy to find.

    Oops. Forgot to include that one in the photo. I believe I found it on eBay not long after I started collecting.

    It's a 1st/1st but didn't realize this book had two different print locations.

    Please explain what you mean by that last statement? I find no difference on the copyright pages.
