I was all set to buy the Reader's Edition by now, but of course money matters do not always go the way I like them to, so for now I will be content with the Deluxe Set, which I am almost afraid to touch. I think I'll buy whatever gloves are required to wear for handling rare books. I do have one of the Reader's Edition volumes though, and by comparing it side by side with its counterpart I find I prefer the looks of the Deluxe Edition.
