Just for the heck of it, here's two pictures of a 1st NIGHT SHIFT, not remaindered, that is in such great shape I'm almost afraid to touch it. Sorry about the glare.


That IS a nice copy!!

My copy is 1st/1st, but ex-library (remains of a flap or something that was glued to the front endpaper, and a price-clipped DJ). The DJ is in GREAT shape by the way, for such a book! Anyway, the book being what it is, I paid $45 for it.

Yes, I am very pleased with its condition, but I paid a heck of a lot more then $45 for it. I also have a near mint copy of THE STAND (the original, not the expanded) which has only a minor bump or two, but it is unread and the covers are still tight, never been opened more than a fraction of an inch. I'll post a picture or two if you like.

More pics. The way I justify these under this topic is NIGHT SHIFT is on the top shelf! The King books are well guarded, as you can see.

At least this time I had a warning and could move my keyboard before seeing the pictures. :)

Nice collection.

Back on topic: I just watched a auction for a 1/1 of Night Shift that was in very good condition, that went for $260. I very good buy I would say.

Congrats on the win.. when you get it look at it VERY carefully for any marks of a library copy.. That discoloration on the lower spine of the DJ looks a whole lot like the size of the white stickers they used to put on in the library (maybe still do) to identify the dewy decmal / library of congress number when on the shelf.

Otherwise it looks fine I just wanted to mention it. Probably just a coincidence
