I'm running out of credits because I keep finding good deals!  And I've had a few of my Wish List books come available.  To stock up on credits, I have a 2 for 1 deal going on all books on my bookshelf, no limit.

I have a very varied assortment of books, because nearly all of them are books left by people when they move out, and stuff like that... lonely, unwanted books.  I collect them and post them so they can find good homes with people who'd like to have them, and that enables me to get the books I'd like to have.  :) 

My bookshelf includes old novels, children's books, Christian books, comedies, health books, a thriller or two, Reader's Digest condensed books, sci-fi, and politics.  And I probably left something out.  Also, I try to make sure all my books have descriptions as well as cover art.

 

I have two unpostable books that I'm anxious to get off my shelves, so I'd like to offer them free with request of any book from my bookshelf.  You may order either one or both, and they would be in addition to the freebie you would get from my shelf.  Just make sure you ask for them if you want them.

 

The two books I'm offering for free are:

"The Titans" by John Jakes, Book V in the American Bicentennial Series, ISBN 0515040460.  This book is unpostable because the cover came off.  I carefully taped it back on with clear packing tape.  Also, the spine is creased once, but it is creased deeply.  Still, all the pages are tight, though you can see the crack at the crease.  Like the first one, the cover has a very worn appearance.

     >>>Raging with the heartbreaks and tragedies of our nation's darkest hours, this passionate saga follows a dynamic generation of Kents through the hell of Civil War -- from New York, where the Kent empire fears destruction... to Washington, where the family is drawn into the rank web of espionage... to the battlefields of the South, where the youngest Kents rally with pride and honor... along a thundering coast where heroes like Lincoln, Grant and Lee, and maniacla blackguards like John Wilkes Booth, touch the Kents -- and change them forever.  As the story begins, the Kent dynasty has fallen into the hands of the late Amanda's opportunistic son, Louis... and Jephtha Kent has come North, leaving his three sons at home in the South.  A nation torn asunder by holocaust and devastation... a family divided by hatred and greed.  Where one battle ends, the other begins, in this turbulent, unforgettable, tale of The Titans.  633 pages.

"The Glitter and the Gold" by Fred Mustard Stewart (author of Ellis Island), ISBN 0451167090.  This book is unpostable because the cover was coming off.  Like the other, I taped it with clear packing tape.  The spine is bowed, but does not seem to be creased.  This book's cover also looks really worn, but not quite as badly as the other two.  Something I just noticed is that there is a 1/2" x 1/2" heart hole punched through the back cover near the bottom.

     >>>Spanning five generations of passion and ambition, from the Gold Rush to today's gold coast, this is the riveting saga of the Collingwoods, a California dynasty blessed and cursed by the fortune it does everything to win -- and even more to keep.  From Emma de Meyer, the ravishingly beautiful matriarch, who fled anti-Jewish persecution in 1848 Germany to find love in the arms of Archer Collingwood, an American on the run from the law... to the aristocratic Claudia, who fought a desperate modern-day battle to continue the Collingwood bloodline of power and pride, this big, glowing, epic novel is afire with passion, adventure, and the rush of mighty events.  It has everything to set the pulse racing.  581 pages.

 

A similar book I'm offering for credit (or as a freebie with the order of another book for credit) on my bookshelf is:

"The Rebels" by John Jakes, Book II in the American Bicentennial Series, ISBN 051503729x.  I'll admit it's on the lower end of the postable range.  The spine is creased in two places, but all the pages are nice and tight, and the cover is in no danger of coming off.  The cover has some bends at the corners and along the edges, but it lays more or less flat.  I suppose that it is the poor quality of the finish of the cover that makes it look really worn.

     >>>As colorful and tumultuous as American history itself -- spellbinding adventure and stirring romance in a saga of the proud, courageous Colonial men and women who dared to call themselves -- The Rebels.  The bold glittering saga of our America -- and the people who made her great.  Beginning with a rag-tag group of Continental soldiers awaiting the British charge on Breed's Hill, and sweeping across the luminous fabric of our Nation's earliest, war-torn years. THE REBELS continues the passionate chronicle of Philip Kent, patriot soldier, and the colorful array of men and women, both famous and unknown, whose destiny propelled them into the epic struggle for American independence.  THE REBELS captures for all time the valor and turmoil of the Revolution, as seen through the eyes of young Philip Kent -- and the reader shares his struggles, his courage, and his loves in this tempestuous saga of American heroism, spirited romance, and rousing adventure. 533 pages.

 

Thanks!
