I come from a family of bibliophiles.  Family dinners inevitably turn into discussions of what everyone is reading.  For a bibliophile, there is a special kind of joy that comes from finding a copy of an out of print favorite in a used bookstore, and adding it to your collection.  And why do you need multiple copies of the same book?  To give to your friends, of course!

I recently tracked down a copy of one of my favorite out of print books, Heroes of Zara Keep by Guy Gregory, a simple YA sword and sorcery novel, that I remember fondly from when I was a teenager.  Flush with success from this recent find, I am wondering dear readers:

What out of print book should I look for in my next trip to the used book store?

Leave a comment and we’ll enter you in a drawing to win a copy of the new Hellbound Hearts anthology. Comments must be left by midnight eastern time on Sunday, November 15th.  SB Frank will announce the winner in his post on Monday morning.  Good luck!
