I'm waiting for that! I thought it wasn't out yet?

Didn't Susan say August ? (or was it October?)

August 1, but Marg probably got a review copy.

hehehe, I am in possession of one of the old/previous versions of Hugh and Bess!

I am counting on BB to become the next PG, and thus increase my net worth immeasurably through the possession of a first-edition early work...

Now, as for me, I'm looking forward to the new BB opus.

In the meantime, have ordered Brenda Clarke/Honeyman's book about Warwick the Kingmaker, and just received (finally!) Helen Maurer's bio of Margaret of Anjou, which looks very, very well written -- scholarly without being weighty.

Someone on Amazon's trying to sell a used copy for $364. Dude! For that, the buyer not only should get the book, but a hour playing fetch with Boswell the dog.

LOL! You are so hot, it sizzles!

My book 'portfolio' did very well last year. Lapham's Quarterly ($15 cover price) has also been commanding some extraordinary secondary market valuations...

Too bad I don't want to sell any of them... I could ask a mere $350....

I've seen prices on Ebay and Amazon and other sites for books and I think..."Does the seller honestly believe that someone is actually going to spend that amount? Especially during this economy?" Personally I think they're delusional.

Wow! I've got both, so I must be sitting on a mint!
