    Post your latest acquired gem here....

    (It's actually been awhile for me--does purchasing "Internet Blocks" so that I can hang out at the MB, count?) ;)

    You can do anything you want, sweetheart, as long as your cookies are turned on. (I'm still laughing.) Doctor Sleep, for me, the saleslady going, "woo-woo" while waving one hand frantically in the air. Too bad they didn't/don't stock Bleeding Edge. Could have said we await silent Tristero's empire...but I suspect her cookies weren't fresh.

    Since I purchased Doctor Sleep (hardcover) and The Shining (Kindle download) I haven't made a Stephen King purchase. So it's been awhile for me, too.

    This is King-related, just purchased and read most of the #70 issue of "Cemetery Dance" Has a cool write-up on King by Bev Vincent. Also, digging that I picked up a magazine with some other dark tales by other writers, plus some book reviews. On the back cover of the issue, it says "The Dark Man" an illustrated poem by Stephen King. Might have to check that out.

    Purchased: On Writing (Scribner Classics Hardcover Edition) and Doctor Sleep (US Hardcover - the UK / Aus cover is rather lacklustre).

    Got Carrie, Thinner and Cujo at Bargain Book store for $5 each. Looks like the old school book club editions. Funny, kind of looks they came from the book shelf. Someone must have had them all and then dropped them off. Since I am replenishing my collection. I was excited to find these. They had the Dark Tower II and III. I have to start with the first book and they didn't have it so I didn't buy those. I just got to make the plunge and go on to Amazon to purchase!

    Notebookgirl, you don't really have to start reading the DT series with book I, The Gunslinger. Starting with book II would be just fine.

    Thanks for the advice. However, I just don't work that way. I need to start at the beginning and get absorbed! I would feel kind of like a cheater if I didn't. I know I am an oddball. :reading:

    Just got my limited Anniversary Edition of Christine from PS Publishing (actually from Sub Press as I ordered it thru them). It's beautiful! Not as fancy as the original Grant limited (and not signed by King), but the artwork is great!

    Technically not my "latest" purchase, ordered in February, but I got email notification that my Cemetery Dance edition of Doctor Sleep has shipped! Can't wait!

    George Romero's Night of the Living Dead collector's edition (laserdisc). I can't see it, but it contains liner notes by King. The reason I bought it. That's how a passionate collector is :D Found it on eBay in a near perfect quality. I'm awaiting The Dark Man: An Illustrated Poem but it has been in transit since August so I guess I'll never see that one. One of the few times Amazon (or whoever) has disappointed me.

    Campbell, where did you find these hardcovers? Have trouble finding first editions of some of those you mentioned.
