About this journal

Although the ONE book that I started this Journal about is still my primary focus, on 29 April 2022 I changed the name of it to better reflect what this Journal has become since I started it.  As it's evolved it has become, at least to me, less about ONE book, and more about sharing my overall collecting journey while I ALSO look for the last 9.8 for my Registry set.  

I have been on the hunt for the below book for several years now. I have a 9.6 and a 9.4 (now TWO 9.4's!). I had the chance to pick up the 9.8 on eBay a couple years ago but at the time I still needed about 30 other books to complete my set and couldn’t justify the high price with so far yet to go. I am now at a point where this book is the LAST 9.8 that I need to have all books 9.8 or above in my set!  Whenever I start to regret not picking the book up when I had the chance, I stop myself... if I had done that there is no telling how that may have impacted the rest of my search and, who knows, if I had that book now maybe I would have missed out on other 9.8's or the many raw books that I had to buy to get the 9.8's that I made myself (check out my set to see some of those!).  The prolonged hunt for this book has also resulted in me meeting some cool people that I might not have met otherwise.  No regerts!

I’ve had a WTB post for quite some time and was able to obtain a few other books that were on the original post, from other board members.

I started this journal originally as another means to get the word out but also as a place where I can occasionally comment on how my search is going.

Thanks for reading and please let me know if you can help.

And Then Another Submission, and Another!

Although I had mentioned that finding a raw to submit was unlikely, earlier this year I did send a book in and am awaiting results. Got the book off of eBay for around $50.00. It certainly has a few issues. I think much of it will press out but I do not think this is my 9.8. If anything I think I sent this book in just for the excitement of sending a copy of this bad boy in myself… Looks like a small tear through the cover… lets see what CCS does with those den
