It's mine! MWAHAHAHAHA! This edition of Anne has been on the top of my acquisition list for awhile. (Illustrated Junior Library) Since they don't sell it brand new anymore, I have been wary about where to buy it from. You just never know what kind of condition you'll get it in, no matter what the seller says. (Just received some "good" condition second hand books via mail that were in such poor condition I am surprised they even tried to sell them. And I even knew that "good" condition meant it wouldn't be that great too!) I finally stumbled on it for $3 in like-new condition on Thriftbooks! (I am cackling like a mad woman as I type this) and figured if it was marked "like new" my chances of it being a good copy were high. And it is! It's a beauty. The illustrations inside are to die for. You can find it on Amazon right now for one cent plus shipping in varying conditions. Most marked as really good condition. Anyway, I have a small handful of Anne editions (13) and each one is carefully selected. It's the only book I collect and I only add copies with covers that really speak to me. So it feels really amazing to have this coveted copy finally in my possession. Do you have any books that you carefully seek out for your shelves? Maybe one specific cover? Or maybe a collectors piece?
