    So when I asked about recommended reading nearly everyone said Sprung and Delbeek. Because of that I've been keeping an eye open trying to find them for reasonable rates. I just came across one that is volume 1, listed as very good condition but they say some wear on the cover so let's call it good to very good. BUT...... it has signatures of both authors in it. ;D

    So what would you all say it's worth, need to know how I did here.

    I wouldn't pay more than the book's face value or less (it is used after all). Also, autographs don't mean much to me and for all you know, the seller himself "forged" the authors names just to try to get more for the book than it's worth. :)

    Well you spoiled my excitement but that's OK since I gave the same value as other used ones, about $45 with shipping. I figured that was a good price for a good condition book, actually I didn't even notice the autograph bit until I had already added it to the cart. I bought volumes 1 and 3, based on other reviews those were the best picks until I can round out the trilogy.

    :lol: Sorry, didn't mean to! Hey, if you're happy with your purchase, it doesn't really matter what anybody, including me, thinks right? :D

    yeppers, and if it stops just one little mistake that costs me one or two pieces of livestock or even a half a day to get straight again it's money well spent. ;)

    You can pick up vol 2 on amazon or buy.com for just a little more than you paid for the used ones. It is kind of cool that you've got signatures in your copy though.
