This week BTT asks: "How about First Editions? Are they something special? Or 'just another book' to you?"
Have to admit, I do think of first editions as a little bit special. And generally, if I'm buying a hard cover copy of a current book, I do try to get the first edition. Well, why not? Think about all those people who just happened to buy first editions of Stephen King back in the day. Of course, I know most books are not going to increase in value, at least not in my lifetime. But you never know.
My husband and I share a love of books. And over the years we've picked up a few first editions of older books, too. I suppose if we could afford it, we'd be full-fledged book collectors instead of just book accumulators.
