Re: [midatlanticretro] interesting book found in thrift store
I'd say that's a good book to hold on to, it's a really good deal.
It has some good material in there about learning the origins of microcomputer design.

"How to Build Your Own Working Microcomputer" by Charles K. Adams, copyright 1980. Its a first edition, second printing hardcover with a brown stain on some pages, but still very useable. Shows how to build a computer based on the 8080 with video, keyboard, and other neat things. Got it as part of a "bag-o-books" which cost me $1. Would this be considered a collectible at all? I'm definitely going to read through it, but I'm just wondering how good a deal I got on this.
