A big question for you all. I have found myself at the point where I need a good general bottle identification guide, and pricing guide. So what book or books should I get ? Discuss. [:D]

I GOT LOTS OF BOOKS ,BUT I COME HERE WHEN I WANT TO FIND SOMETHING ABOUT A BOTTLE AND THE CURRENT PRICE OR I GO ON EBAY AND CHECK THE BOTTLE I HAVE AND SEE WHAT IT GOES FOR.

NOW IF YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR INTEREST IN A CERTAIN CATAGORY THEN A BOTTLE BOOK CAN BE RECOMMENDED. THE BEST BOOKS ONLY TELL HOW RARE A BOTTLE IS ,BUT GIVES A GOOD DEAL OF INFO ABOUT THAT BOTTLE AND HOW RARE IT IS .[AT THAT TIME AT LEAST,BUT MANY HAVE HELD UP OVER THE YEARS] SOME TIMES THESE BETTER BOOKS DO NOT GIVE YOU A PRICE CAUSE THAT CHANGES SO MUCH AND FROM LOCATION TO LOCATION ,AS A BOTTLE MAY BE RARE IN ONE PART OF THE COUNTRY ,BUT MAY BE COMMON IN ANOTHER.

FOR MY MONEY THEY "ONE FITS ALL BOTTLE BOOKS " ARE THE WORST. OVER INFLATED OR UNDERINFLATED PRICES AND GIVE VERY LITTLE INFO ON ANY BOTTLE! EXAMPLE KILMERS BOTTLE ,WELL WHICH ONE? THE SWAMP ROOT CURE? REMEDY ? KILMER HEART CURE? MAN BIG DIFFERENCE IN PRICES. YET THEY MAKE NO DIFFERENCE ,SO YOU GOT A "KILMERS" BOTTLE AND YOU THINK IT IS WORTH $100+ [WHEN IN REALITY THE KILMERS HEART CURE IS WORTH THAT]

NO MAGIC BOTTLE BOOK THAT TELLS ALL! JUST COLLECTING ,TALKING TO OTHERS BOUT WHAT YOU COLLECT AND A SPECIFIC BOTTLE BOOK FOR SPECIFIC BOTTLES:EXAMPLE: IF YOU COLLECT "CURE " BOTTLES THEN "COLLECTING THE CURES" AND THE SEQUAL"COLLECTING ALL THE CURES" BY BILL AGEE. THOUGH WRITTEN IN THE 70S STILL LOOKED ON AS ONE OF THE BEST TWO BOOKS ON "CURE "BOTTLES.MANY CLASSIC BOOKS JUST DEPENDS ON WHAT BOTTLES YOU COLLECT!

NOW I COLLECT ALL KINDS AND I GET SCREWED A BIT!HA,BUT I HAVE MY FUN AND I ALWAYS SEEM TO END UP EVEN IN THE END SO FAR ,THAT IS MY GOAL ,NOT TO HAVE ANY MONEY IN MY COLLECTION IN THE END,SELL THEM GET MY MONEY BACK PLUS GET TO ENJOY THEM FOR YEARS! HOPE I HELPED SOME AND NOT JUST CONFUSED YOU,PETE!
