That's a really good deal. Now you'll have to hunt for volumes 4, 5 and 6.

Yep, hopefully find them at a yard sale too. The lady I bought them from said she was going to build the complete set till she saw the prices they were selling for online.

If you have a real interest, I have volumes 4,5,6,7,8,9, and The one entitled "I Wish I Could Give My Son A Wild Raccoon", and "The Salt Book" However they will be a little higher priced. And yes, I have read through them all.

Great bunch of knowledge there!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

You may think before you act. The question is did you listen to your own council?

Look them up on ebay, $10 was a bargain. The whole set is selling in the 150-200 range. Probably the current situation in the world pushing the prices up but not by much.

I'm surprised they cost you $10. Most people around here wouldn't have a clue what those books are and would have maybe had them a a buck a piece or lower at a garage sale.

I think she would have priced them lower, but she said she had wanted to complete the set until she saw how much it would cost to buy the rest.

If you find any at those prices in good condition buy them. I'll be happy to reimburse you and pay shipping.
