>>>I guess I'm more of a hunter than a collector. I have the resources to track down and purchase items available online (within reason), and have done so on occassion. My real joy comes in perusing used bookstores and second hand shops looking for unexpected finds.

This raises an interesting point. I think it was a bit more of a rush for me before I realized how much was up on ABE. I too love the thrill of the hunt. One challange I have living in the USA is that I'm higly unlikely to find the older and more obscure stuff at bookstores like I could if I was in the UK.
