Booking Through Thursday
This week Booking Through Thursday asks us: How about First Editions? Are they something special? Or "just another book" to you?
I am a book person through and through and I love first editions. But the ones that I really get excited about are the first editions of the vintage mysteries that I collect. When I found a British first edition of Whose Body? by Dorothy L Sayers just sitting in the local library's used book store I was in heaven. That's my all-time best catch yet. The only way it could have been better was if it had been signed.
