Hi,

I am looking to build up credits and get rid of books.  If there is a book on my shelf you would like, order it and then PM me to let me know which second book you would like for free.

I will also place some damaged items on my profile that can be use for free books as well.

5 of the books on my bookshelf are wishlisted under different ISBNs

Thanks,

Lita

Oops, I have several books listed individually as Forum Topics, Please forgive!!

Hi Megan,

Thanks for checking out my bookshelf (which is VERY limited).  I saw that you have Virgin of the Small Plains on your wishlist.  I just finished a book-club copy and my local book club will be discussing it this month.  After that, I could send it to you as a freebie if you wish.  It wouldn't be for a credit since its is a book-club edition and therefore can't be "sold".  Have your read other books by that author?

Thanks,

Lita

Wait, Lita, why can't book-club editions be posted? I thought they could be; I'm off to do a little research... :P

I looked again. There's nothing wrong with posting a book club edition under the correct ISBN. Some people have conditions against them though.

Hi Shelby,

I am sorry for the confusion regarding the "book club" edition.  It is a special edition that is only for distribution to individual book clubs who are going to read it and review it, not the typical book club editions where you buy 5 books for $1 and get the monthly choices.  It actually has no ISBN number printed on it and says "Not for Sale" where the ISBN ordinarily would be.    This is actually the first book I have seen like this.

Sounds like maybe an advanced reader copy (ARC)?

That sounds like what it is.

Hi Lita,

Thanks for the offer. I'd like to order Truly by Mary Balogh and get Sun Kissed by C.Anderson as my freebee!  If either is already taken I'll take the other C.Anderson book Bright Eyes.  Blessings, Mary

Hi Mary,

Thanks so much!
Truly has reading creases on the spine from being opened, but other than that it is in very good condition. Sun Kissed is in beautiful shape.   Ihave taken Sun Kissed off my shelf so that I can use it as the freebie.
Thanks,
Lita
