    * The long walk UK 1st
    * The running man UK 1st
    * The Plant #1 or 3 unsigned
    * The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon Proof with Letter by King.
    * The Gunslinger 1st Grant
    * Gwendy's Button Box S/L
    * Sleeping Beauties US proof

    * Sleeping Beauties UK proof

    * At least 1 of the 22 1st fiction appearances' magazines/newspapers I'm missing.
    * At least 3 of the 15 1st fiction appearances' books I'm missing.
    * At least 2 of the 28 promo items I'm after.
    * At least 3 more 1st edition books signed by King.
    * At least 2 S/L books I'm missing.
    * At least 15 of the 138 magazines I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 10 of the 38 books I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 2 of the 173 newspapers I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 1 of the two Spanish editions I'm missing.

    Since I completed my last Grails list, I have a new one. I'm pretty positive it'll take a lot of time to get these but I'm not aiming to get 'em in the near future:

    * The Regulators - Lettered edition
    * Stories of Suspense
    * One copy of The Maine campus with a S. King piece on it.
    So far, so good!
    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.
    Maximum Overdrive Cardboard truck

    I have a few goals. I already got one of them a S\L Skeleton Crew.
    Christine S\L
    Regulators S\L
    The Talisman S\L
    WTTHK S\L
    Those are probably the ones I want the most right now.
    We shall see if I get any more this year.

    I doubt most collections here would fit into that!

    I'd say I was about 4 maybe 5 books off that goal.
    "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
