Where do they belong?

Postby dunaddict » 07 Dec 2008 14:48

Do you own one or more of the new 'Dune'-'novels'? If so, where are they now?:

1) On my bookshelf, along with the other Dunes.
2) On my bookshelf, but nowhere near the real Dune books.
3) Stored in my attic/cellar.
4) My new doorstop / paperweight.
5) Sold / Present for a 'friend'.
6) In my fireplace / toiletpaper.

I keep Dune where I can find it in the dark.
I keep the rest of the original books on a shelf by the stairs.
The new books are all on the attic in my makeshift cardboard-box bookcase.

I traded them in at the used book store for credit and got my hands on better material.

I never bought any of the new crap, but if I did I would have given them to a used bookstore to keep someone else from giving money to the HLP.

My correcting of my file versions is an ongoing process, so I've kept my copies of everything; mostly paperbacks.

I just keep everything piled on a shelf next to whatever computer I'm using, currently the iMac downstairs under the heater. :) (No point in having to run all over the place if I want to look something up hard-copy. :roll: )

Mine are still unfortunately on my bookcase next to the Originals b/c I can't bring myself to just discarding them. I've thought about donating to Big Brothers Big Sisters but that would just be cruel.

Seconded! Bring it on! Youtube here we come. :)

Personally I had them next to my real Dune books for years. After reading 'Hunters of Dune' I couldn't stand seeing them together on the same shelf anymore and I put all those fake Dune books in a drawer where they can't hurt anyone's eyes.

All of the KJA/BH books I have purchased sit in a box in my closet. I will probably take them to my local used book store or will throw them away because I'd like to use that box to store something of worth.
