Ya gotta love it when money falls out of the sky.
John Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #176 was to "Tell us of one piece of culture -- book, movie, album, painting, play, architectural 'masterpiece,' whatever -- that you think is wildly overrated."
I was just over at Carly's blog, Ellipsis, where she posted an excellent response naming the movie "Dune" as the worst-ever film adaptation of a book. (I wholeheartedly agree.)
That got me thinking about whether my hubby might like a set of Frank Herbert's books, "The Dune Chronicles" -- most definitely NOT overrated. Which reminded me of the old copy of "The Dune Encyclopedia" I picked up for 50 cents at a library sale.
All of which led me to Amazon.com, where I discovered that my Encyclopedia, the hardcover 1984 Book Club Edition, is worth around $90 to $125. And to think, I very nearly re-donated it to the library last week.
Carly girl, I owe ya one.
