Oh yes and my dad gave me a better copy of V. than the falling apart paperback he's read dozens of times since 1964. It's a Modern Library edition with notes from whoever had it before! He got it on eBay for the dust jacket, to go with a better copy of the same edition which was lacking but is now worth $150. I love books with notes in them. Even when I come across them in the library where people should not be scribbling (don't be steppin' on my turf). "Furthest point to wh/ yo yo can stretch before being pulled back: what this book is about" and "-a tremendous revenge on language."
