I love that book, you really feel like Marilyn is actually saying those words to you. I need to save for that book (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) It's quite expensive here.

Impressive collections. I've started collecting them, sort of.
I wish I had kept all the ones I've traded over the years.

Great collections guys (IMG:style_emoticons/default/clapping.gif) ! Some titles I had never heard of before (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif) ! For example, Merja or Chris can you tell me a bit more about this one: Frederic Cabanas: Marilyn - La magia del cemento SC Ltd edt. 19/25? I seem to have missed that one when it came out (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif)

I was to lazy to type in all my books so I did it this way (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blush.gif) . I have left catalogs and MM-related books out of the list.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/hug.gif) Suus


Just curious, where do you store all your books?? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Suus (hope you don't mind another question)--
I saw your responses in the book survey, but I'm just wondering if it still stands that those books are your favorites?
I want to hear from an expert what the best book (in general, not just for bios) is! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Lol I asked this exact same question from her! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laughing.gif) Suus, have you thought about starting a blog on MM books (and magazines) or something? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/balloon.gif) I'm sure many other fans in addition to me and Alex would love to read reviews and hear what books you recommend. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink3.gif)

I've heard some horror stories from some of my MM friends who started collecting like 20 years ago when you couldn't get almost anything Marilyn in Finland and there was no internet. Collecting was so much more difficult (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) I belong to the internet/Amazon/Ebay generation who have never had that problem in collectin MM (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
