Don't mean to hog the list but I am very curious. I own 5 IJ.
One for home.. One that is torn up for each section during a
Wallace list read... One in my office.. one in my car. and one in my country house and it's on kindle.. So 6 copies! i have to have it near me at all times..
It and Murakami's books I like to have so I never feel alone or uncentered. Not that I'm that centered...
Peace to you guys.. Carol

Five, no! Six! Heh. Reminds me of the Spanish Inquisition sketch from Python. :D
I have my paperback copy, that's happily getting to look a bit worn, and a copy on my Blackberry for dire emergencies when I don't have the book with me.
I'm still a noob, obviously. ;)

7, but I have owned 9.

2 copies of 1st edition hardcover (incorrect "Vollman"); one signed
1st edition hardcover (corrected "Vollmann")
Back Bay paperback, my 1st copy, heavily marked-up; reading copy
Abacus UK paperback edition
Uncorrected Advance Proof - signed
10th anniversary paperback

I thought I had a 2nd signed 1st edition hardcover, but I may have given it away when my wife gave me the one listed above (not remembering I had one already). I also had a book club paperback (with the hard cover art) that I cut up into smaller pieces for easier transport way back when. I don't think I have that anymore.

And I have resisted buying the Italian and German translations .. so far. :ugeek:
