I have gotten several more to add to my growing collection but I'm still missing It, the Dark Tower series #2 and up, Skeleton Crew and the Shining.  I am only looking for hardcovers with dust jackets since I want to keep them...my 14 year old daughter has laid claim on my books when I die, so they have to be in good enough shape to hold out til then! LOL  Don't ya love how blunt kids can be?  Anyway, I did just add some books to my shelf, so if anyone has these books and is willing to part with them maybe we can make some sort of deal.  I'm getting closer and closer to getting them all, but I am on a serious hunt for the last few books.  There are a few more I need but those are the one's I want the most right now.  Anyone??

i don't have any; but are u looking in bookstores in your area? We have  friends of the Library stores here (some r stores) others just places in the library; where u can perhaps post your wish list there. since its been awhile since u posted have u found them? if not check abeusedbooks., amazon, halfcom. & other places; u might check out B&N used etc., alibris, & of course, Goodwill & Salvation Army sometimes has excellent books. campusi.com compares prices as do a lot of other places showing u the best place to buy, pricewise. good luck with your hunt!

Sandy, the WalMart in my town had two of the Dark Tower books on a bargain book table for less than $10 each.

I would also love to RE-collect all of King's books in HC w/dust jackets. I had them all to date but when I moved from NJ 18 months ago, I had to leave some behind. I only brought with me the ones I had not read yet.

I even managed to get my hands on Secret Windows.That was a hard one to get too!
