  1. These are all fantastic. Ok, so the enormous price tags could be questioned, but each Top Ten entry reflects the power of books as a commodity in their own right.

    Also, the fact that King has used his Bachman persona to sign the $8,000 top spot book, is a triumph for the art of writing – celebrating that author / character tension in such a stellar novelist.

  2. It's a little sad, though, to think that some equally wonderful books make the same amount – for their entire advance.
