I joined the site a couple months ago, and am pleased to have found a home. Did not stumble onto site, however. After the end of classes in April 1998 while playing hooky from a construction job that was supposed to start a week early, I read a heisted copy Factotum while driving over the Rocky Mountains from Alberta into British Columbia. I immediately lost all feeling need to work again, ever. Thankfully, it has never come back and has been replaced by the need to bet on Fairgrounds and Hollywood, and to drive cars with headlights that don't turn on until you drive over a bump. I live on a Caribbean island, so it gets slow sometimes. In January I started buying old/signed/other Buk books, and it's a lot of fun. I really like the help a person can get in the "What's my X worth" or "Is this real" threads in the forum. There it is!
