    Those prices aren't bad for a signed first edition. Actually pretty damn cheap.

    Aw, nostalgia. I started reading song of ice and fire when I was about 16. I was completely enthralled.

    I refuse to watch game of thrones. It makes me thing of this:

    When you guys are done reading A Song of Fire and Ice (or if you are already done), you need to grab The First Law Trilogy. I actually like it more than A Song of Ice and Fire, though for different reasons. Joe Abercrombie is awesome and his pacing is exceptional. If you want a taste of his work, buy The Heroes. It'll take you all of a few pages to be an addict. It's a stand-alone and although it follows The First Law Trilogy (and Best Served Cold) chronologically, you don't really ruin anything by reading it first. I actually read all his books in reverse order and loved 'em, maybe more than I would have reading them chronologically.

    Anyway. So if you guys are looking for a great fantasy author, Abercrombie rules.

    I will have to check him out. I have a long list of books to read/write but my skyrim addiction taking up my few hours of free time.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I'm counting days to the D3 release, myself.
    On the topic of signed, first edition, etc: I have a signed copy of the first novel release of Stephen King's "Colorado Kid." Picked it up at a used bookstore for $5. Guy didn't realize it's one of the harder SK's to get your hands on, let alone signed, and didn't realize that SK didn't sign the cover page, but the first page of the book in this one.
    Got my mom a signed copy of IT for a song last Christmas and got my grandfather not just a copy of an incredibly rare opera (only one run of tapes was ever made), but a copy of it's forerunner, with a signed case by the lead soprano on the former. Go eBay ($50.)

    I've got a signed Philip K. Dick hardcover and a signed William Gibson hardcover (no, not Neuromancer). Otherwise, my favourite book is my first edition paperback of "Only Forward," my favouritest book ever.

    I have a signed first edition Primal Blueprint Cookbook. Does that count for anything?
