Very good attitude. I stored my books with my parents, and I think most of
them stayed safe. One box got wet--fortunately not much, and fortunately
nothing I really cared about. And I think my brothers got into them and
took some stuff...I know for a fact my brother stole my copy of _The
Silmarillion_ and I didn't notice for *years* until he 'fessed up last
May.... But my parents themselves are pretty safe. :)
I think I paid about $3 for my copy of F&H. I haven't paid full price for
most of my DWJ. Just the new ones. But some Heisenbergian phenomenon has
killed my good luck at finding rare books dirt cheap; once I realized what
good luck I was having, it disappeared. I used to practically trip over
P.C. Hodgell wherever I went (not that it matters much since those books
have been reprinted...).
