Thank you everyone for your orders.
My bookshelf is now bare.
 
Time's getting close.
I'll soon no longer be able to make such posting offers in the Book Bazaar.
I'm cutting back my participation due to having maxed out my library of readable books
(enough to last me the rest of my life now).

My current credits and Wish List will keep for happy for years to come.
Once my membership reverts back to the minimum my postings will no longer be available.

Too many people misunderstand this offer.

Please read it carefully!!

 

Order the first single book for 1 credit. That 1st credit ONLY gets you 1 book!!.

 

After that, when you order 1 more book, you get 9 FREE! That's 10 books for each 1 credit after the first book! And you can get as many extra 10 for 1 books as you want after the first book. That means you MUST order 2 books to get the 10 for 1 deal.

 

Why the first book for 1 credit? Because that's the way the Post Office does Media Mail. They charge $2.72 for the first pound, even if it's only 1 book, so ordering 1 book costs me $2.72 to send. After that it's only 50c for each extra pound. I can usually send 1 large or 3 paperback books per pound. I want to get rid of a lot of books and give everyone a GREAT deal, but I can't afford to do it on the first credit for one pound. Each credit is worth about $2.00 so each additional credit will pay for an extra 4 pounds of books.

 

At 10 for 1 you can get lots of experimental books,
authors, and genres you usually skip.
Expand your horizon!
Get extras for friends and family!


Go WILD!!

To me it's 11 books for two credits so I can understand the confusion.  I was going to look for 9 free books..

 I figured people were going get confused by thinking it's 10 for 1 credit.  

11 books for 2 credits is clear and easy to understand.

I added about 25 more books and cleaned up my bookshelf to make sure everything listed there is what's actually available.

I just got 1 book, the offer was not clear. 10 for 1 was what you said, you're not being right with your offer.

Please reread the offer, NOT JUST THETITLE, and tell me where it was unclear. Everyone else got it right.

HI, I ordered two books and I guess because I took too long to finish ordering it, for some reason, it didn't take, so it looked like I ordered them separately but I really didn't. The first time I tried ordering both books, The AT Wit's End didn't record for some reason. The second book which was really the first one was Thunderhead or something like that. You should see the name is from me whatever it is.   Anyway, for my 9 free books, I would like:

Simon Says, Intrigue # 258
The Secret Supper by Javier Sierra
Utopia by Lincoln Child
Casting Spells by Barbara Bretton
The Christmas Wife by Sherry Lewis
A Killing in the Market by Norma Daniels
Mount Dragon by Preston and Child
Reindeer Do Wear Striped Underwear
Seawitch by Alistair Maclean

Just so you know, the title on your offer does only say, 10 books for 1 credit. I only saw your explanation when I opened it up planning on ordering just one book and then 9 more. Like one of the ladies mentioned, it would be less confusing if you wrote 11 books for 2 credits. No matter how you offer it, it's a great deal. Thanks for being a good guy and giving us a special treat for the holidays. Merry Christmas and hope you have a wonderful New Year. Sandra

Snadra K.

Thank you for the order and PM. Both books showed up as a single order from you so it's fine. I"ve pulled and boxed them all to go out Monday.

On the title changing to 11 for 2, that would be incorrect, too. I've had several people order 20 to 50 books, all at 10 for 1 AFTER the first book. If I said 11 for 2 that would imply 22 for 4,  33 for 6, and that's not as good as 21 for 3 or 31 for 4. I started with about 150 books plus about 30 that were not posted. I'm now down to 42 (thank you everyone!).

Oops, just realized that sherlock holmes was an audio book so it was two credits.  Can i order just that one, and take the nine free books?
