    Default The Collectible Ernest Cline - Ready Player One

    Well I was thinking to start that thread for a few days. The hype around this book is huge and will get bigger when the movie (directed by Spielberg) will be out.

    The second book (Armada) is scheduled to be published in July along with US signing tour.

    If you didn't read the book - Do it !

    If you can get your hands on the first edition - Do it !

    Info from Goodreads

    Let's go....

    Well I'm working and on-call the night of the 13th - so I won't be able to make it to Petaluma - too bad - nice place and was there to see Joe Hill last year. At least I'm off on the 14th - so I'll be at the official book launch at Keplers. I don't have any pictures of my 1/1 - turns out I had my reading copy from a few years back - carried it around awhile - took the dj off and left it somewhere. Left the book for my wife to read - after we moved - found the dj put it back on book and then on bookshelf since my wife never had time to read it - then found a 1/1 online the other day (should be here next week) and figured I should check what was the printing of the copy I had at home - stupid me it turns out it was a 1/1 - I had no clue. I guess this was back before I really started collecting and didn't pay any attention. Anyway becca said I gotta stop checking to make sure it's still a 1/1 and stop touching it (the book that is).

    The plan will be for that copy to be signed on the 14th. I'm off that day and have a meeting until 2pm - so I'll head down there and get in around 4 - plenty early to scope things out and get situated - in case anyone else is around and wants to join me.

    Oh and I just got the ebook of rp1 with audio by wil Wheaton, since my "reading" copy ain't a reading copy anymore. We have a long drive on Thursday - so we will listen to wil on the way down - should be fun.

    I had no idea this book was "collectable"; dug mine out and slapped a Broadart on it. It is a first - but "gently" read. I still have all those old Infocom games and some of the "New Zork Times" issues. Loved that stuff.

    You all might be interested to know we plan an oversize limited of READY PLAYER ONE. In fact, it's been designed and is being proofread.

    In case anyone is interested -I do have an extra copy of RP1 (1/1) - it is unsigned - but I will be attending the book launch for Armada in July and can get it signed/personalized that day as well as a copy of Armada from launch day too.

    SOLD

    btw - I will not be selling the copy unsigned - since 3 signed copies on eBay have gone for $360/380/400 recently and there is another for $445. But I will be willing to sell a signed copy for less than those, plus the Armada at cost.

    Oh, and I will not be planning on getting anymore copies of armada separately on launch day either - my bag is already filled (I have learned to limit myself )

    Nothing up or listed. His blog has links to buy signed copies of armada - and info to come soon. I just happened to come across keplers site and they mentioned having the book launch - otherwise I haven't seen any other listings; although another local spot said he'd be there on the 13th - which I'm not sure since its day before the launch.
