A thousand fucking euros? Get the fuck outta here. I mean, I sell books for a living; I value books; I think great books are absurdly underpriced. A well made book, hand sewn, with acid free paper and good boards, will outlast most watches, if treasured. Books are beautiful things, but a book that costs more than a blowjob from Bree Olson? That's just fucking nutz.

Don't worry. This will be reduced to $30 at Ross by next year.

1000 Euros????? LOL

Paying that would be dumber than forking out retail for an Invicta

I shudder to imagine how some "stains" might get there....

Maybe Conjurer can answer this.
He knows stains as well as books.
