Jan, once you get the hang of it book collecting can be more fum than you can imagine. It can also be expensive. NEVER let a book dealer know that you just HAVE to have that certain book or the price will go way up. Stick with 2nd hand stores and flea markets until you feel comfortable. I just bought a copy of "Pearl S. Bucks Story Bible" on Amazon.com for $2. It is rare and hard to find. I won the seller lost.
