Comments on the Collection

I started collecting during the summer of 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My main focus is to try to get all the titles in the regular and giant series, all with dust jacket except the flex bindings (those being to expensive with jackets).

Personal Comments

Since I started collecting I have come across a few great deals. One is first editions of Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire for 25 Dollars. Second is a first edition of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights in the dust jacket for only 5 Dollars. My most recent find of note was a First Edition copy of The Long March by Styron for only $2.50.
