I've thought about searching for the books, but I'm only half way through Sharpe right now. You mention you're waiting for all the blu ray, me too! I've written several times about how TPTB really screw Bond collectors with all the releases. Of course, I've got about four different sets of Star Wars and LOTR-can't wait for those on blu ray! But you figure 24 films on blu ray is going to be very expensive-especially to an audience that already paid out for the original vhs, the first dvds, the special dvds, the collector sets and the ultimate collections. And from what I've seen thus far, bluray makes these films look mighty good!
