hot damn! you got all three in the epic trilogy for astronomically less than retail...and they're basically collectors items...lucky!
you've got mad skills when it comes dumpster diving, thrift store rummaging and second-hand bookstore shelf delving!

Are you going to re-read them for the 23rd time? I would.
