Manny In fact it was a few days ago... this was a late present, but all the better for it :)

Sean DeLauder Wow. I can't imagine the corollary expenses of purchasing a containment unit and keeping it pumped full of inert gases. I imagine this is a view from one of the security cameras, but you've cropped out the screen number.


message 6: by Manny (new)

Manny You've got to remember that we live in Geneva. Not went to a CERN garage sale and picked up the containment unit, complete with remote control manipulators and a year's supply of nitrogen, for another 15 francs.


Michelle (Crazy Cat Lady) You're so lucky! The only thing better than collecting books is collecting valuable books ;) Love LOTR, by the way.

I certainly do feel lucky!

Love LOTR, by the way."

I somehow guessed that from your name :) I am also a huge fan...

Happy birthday (again, I think).


message 11: by Manny (new)

Manny It may be the most valuable birthday present I've ever received! Now if only I were actually allowed to touch it...

message 15: by Manny (new)

Manny If it's any comfort, I still haven't dared open them.

That's a tricky one: as books, they should be loved, which ought to include reading them, albeit carefully. Yet I fully understand why you're reluctant to do it.
