But I've ended up with six copies of the same book before now. :?

Hahaha, six? Really? I discovered some old old books I used to read as a child (Deltora Quest by Emily Rodda) and realised I have three copies of the same book.

Maybe my old childhood friends are missing theirs? :?

Hellooo and welcome Georgie! I buy the hardcovers as soon as the book's released. :D

Maybe you harbour a secret urge to own a book shop? :D

I'm also looking for an opinion on the comics - are they worth me trying to source them out


I take you're refering to the graphic novels in softcovers good if you like comic artwork and slightly different but good.
or the hardcover one. http://www.harpercollins.com/browseinsi ... 0061685965

Thank you for the warm welcomes. I like it here already :D

I do believe those are some of the comics, the all-knowing Wikipedia tells me four of them have been made into graphic novels. I'd like to be able to draw the characters myself when I have the chance, but I'm afraid once I see someone's interpretation and agree with it, it sticks in my mind.

Long way to go before I finish the actual books, anyway. I've saved the Death & friends ones for last.. I have the highest hopes for them.
