I can't see the images.

<Edit> Right after I posted the above, the first image, The Running Man pb, showed up!

You got a great deal!

I'm 7 months shy of 50 and I had butterflies in my stomach as I walked out the door. You can see a slight flaw in the circle in the hands but otherwise this is a pristine copy of the book. Now if I can find another store with a copy of Roadwork!

Nice score.
I remember how I felt when I found my first edition shining for only $15. It's a great feeling finding rare books cheap.

Congrats! I've picked up a few early 80's first editions for a few dollars. But I don't have an awesome "Found a 1st edition Carrie for a dollar" type stories. Of course that means I'm due, right :)
