Bob Greene - Billion Dollar Baby Book

Post by Seriously » Wed Jan 23, 2019 7:06 pm

I know this has probably been done to death previously - but I have never read it. There are some ridiculous prices for second hand copies and I don't intend paying that, so does any know if there are any intentions to release this on Kindle? I would like to think so. :rock:

I will not argue the integrity of the publication any more than I'll stick up for any side in that fight. That said, I tend to believe MB, NS, DD and (to a lesser degree) BG, if it matters - which it doesn't. It's a riveting read and the writing is crisp and first class. I recall seeing a PDF online. Can't remember if it was for sale or if it was just...there. Been a long time since I've seen it.

I have a copy that I am open to offers for. It is in vg condition and has all the pics intact. US only though as shipping overseas is now too costly.

I guessed I could, but at what cost and from where? Thanks for getting back to me on this.

It's a good read. But remember, it's written by a guy who took a few shots to the head as Santa Claus! :rotfl:

Like I said, if you want to borrow my copy you can. I’m in the Uk. It’s worth reading but I’m not sure it’s worth the price some ar3 asking for it. I got lucky purchasing my copy 😀

Thanks, but I wouldn't like to be responsible for this as these books are going for some hefty prices.

Are they actually going for those prices though? Or is that just what the dealers are asking?

Of course that doesn’t make it any easier on you getting hold of a copy. Keep an eye out and you might find one at reasonable price sometime or as has been mentioned there is a pdf floating around the Internet somewhere. My offer still stands, if you change your mind pm me.

again you think a kindle reissue would fetch a few quid on this, if I find the PDF I will let you know.

I managed to secure a great paperback copy at the Wee Book Inn (second hand bookstore) for under five bucks. It was on a clearance rack of all places. I didn't even mention what it was going for elsewhere after I bought it. I just walked out.
If I may put forward a slice of personal colostomy...

Good for you! :clap: $5 is all the paperback is actually worth. Enjoy! :8):
I've often said with these kind of finds that once I've walked into the store, what I was looking for had been calling to me... Paranormal - yes! :ghostface: SickThings can be the judge. :bam:
The vendor can (possibly) figure that out the next time the book crosses paths!
However, if you do know the merchant it may help you "Down The Road" :8): Good luck!

That's great, well done. Still hope for me yet, but I do have the pdf version now sent to me by some kind person. :rock:

A great book, a great read. Worth every penny.

My favourite era.

Alice signed my hardback edition at the Meet & Greet I went to :)
