Very sorry, I should have noted that I am not seeking any signed editions. I'll edit the original post. All the signed copies I own were signed by the authors when I met them, which is more valuable to me. I don't find myself interested in works signed for other people (even without names). Someone else will no doubt be very interested in those rare finds! :D

Thank you very much! Definitely let me know what you have available. I've decided my birthday will last a few days longer... :lol:

First post updated.

I'm thinking of grabbing some of the less expensive books I'm still seeking this week... so if anyone is selling any of those up there for under $20, let me know!

I'm not sure if you're in a big town or not, but those cheaper 1st editions should be relatively easy to find at your local bookstore. Considering the cost of shipping that's what I usually recommend folks doing (Dolores Claiborne, Pet Semetery, Just after Sunset, etc)

Buying local also let's you see/feel the book in hand before buying...and it's fun :)

I'm always hunting for deals in the local used book stores, yard sales, and farmer's markets! You're right, it is a lot of fun! Actually, my father is working for a used book circulation place now. Unfortunately, all the King firsts he gets in are duplicates of what I already have. I snatch them up anyway and sometimes replace my copies with some in better condition. So, I do have a bunch of duplicates to sell/trade.

I've noticed, though, that when I purchase direct from a collector I end up with better quality editions. Some of the books I've obtained from other King fans are perfect! I may pay a bit more and shipping can be required, but I usually feel it's worth it. Plus... I feel like books have personality. I consider those I find at flea markets to be "rescues" saved from an unknown fate; no longer at risk of being manhandled by grubby fingers, roughly read by dog-earing coffee spillers, or worse! The books I "adopt" from other loving collectors find permanent homes on my shelves as well. With them, I feel like I'm collecting the collectors too. It makes collecting feel more like a community endeavor; knowing that this book once sat on a shelf next to a signed copy, that book was owned by someone who read King before I was born, and so on... it adds to the personality.

For a long time, I refused to get rid of any books... I had over a dozen copies of From a Buick 8 shrink wrapped, half a dozen of every book published after 1996, and many other duplicates. Not to mention my non-King books! (I kept every single book I ever owned... at one point, I had a few thousand books in my one room apartment.) I clearly have attachment issues. When I moved, I realized that it was overkill and I needed to spread the love around a little bit. I'm doing a much better job of sharing now. ;)

Thanks for the offer, jimimck! I'm not hunting for a UK 'Salem's Lot, but in the future, if I'm hunting for any UK editions, I'll be sure to let you know!
