Default Great titles.

I love their exclusive hardcover titles. I need to pick up Interview With the Vampire. I may also get Gray's Anatomy.

I finally got my pics up, Hitchhiker's Guide is great. I really would love to get a few more, Sherlock Holmes is very cool. But they are a bit pricey, although not that bad considering what you get is very cool. I am actually debating on whether I want to remove the plastic from my Hitchikers Guide.

I may get Sherlock Holmes for my mom she loves the stories, and the price is not great, I'd just get the ones that I cannot live without.

Thanks for that. That'll make the cost of the books easier to swallow.

Yeah...a few months back they had a "buy 2 get 1 free" promotion for the B&N hardbacks. I picked up these:





And my favorite one:

I have Arabian Knights. Beautiful book just wish I could say the same about the very dated translation.

I think a series that would be awesome to release as one of the B&N exclusive hardcovers would be Frank Herbert's Dune

A couple of years ago I got into collecting Easton Press leatherbound books. It was a very expensive habit, so I had to give it up.

I found out about B&N's exclusive books recently. I immediately had to go pick up Jurassic Park/Lost World because I'm a huge Crichton fan and the book itself is gorgeous. These aren't quite as nice as Easton Press, but the price is much more agreeable .

I'd like to pick up the HG Wells and Jules Verne collections next.

I have one of the two versions that Easton Press put out (one is nicer than the other). They occasionally come up on eBay for a good price.

Thanks for the info...I'll have to check out eBay and see if I can find one for a decent price.

I love these books! I have 4 or 5 of them; my favorite covers so far are Chronicles of Narnia and Hitchhikers Guide.
