Thrift Store Score!!!
Bought this for $3. Apparently, it's worth much more. Yay for scouring dusty shelves!!!

The dust jacket alone can be half the value, even without it, that's worth way more than $3.00!

Thanks guys!!! I'm excited, but I'm not sure what's next, honestly. I have several that are very old (including one from 1843 that's in fair-good condition and pretty neat). There are a handful I'll never let go, but there are some that aren't in the genre I collect that may well be valuable. I'm just not sure what to do with them. :-/

Ahhhhh I've a feeling I've found my calling! A friend of my mother-in-law gave me 31 old books. Old AWESOME books. On the very top? A 1943 edition of "The Fountainhead."
The literary nerd in me is squealing right now!!!
