Take a look at my shelf and lets make a deal!    Please order two books and post your freebie picks (3 freebies) here so they're spoken for.  Also PM me your ordered books and freebie picks you wanted.

Thanks!

 

 

I also have the following books that are unpostable, you can claim one as an additional freebie with any order:

  • The Rainmaker - John Grisham - ISBN: 044022165x  Very used.   No water damage, spine is very used.  Some fraying at corners.  Completely readable though.
  • Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad - ISBN: 0140180907 Cover and index cut with scissors.  Introduction and rest of book intact. From the back cover:  In Heart of Darkness Conrad unfolds the story of Marlow's search for Mr. Kurtz, the company agent whose 'unlawful soul' has been 'beguiled beyond the bounds of permitted aspirations' in his dealings with the natives of the Belgian Congo.  Marlow's adventure involves him in a crucial reappraisal of his own values.  It is Kurtz, however, who attains to a vision of the inexpressible, terrifying reality of the heart in this extraordinary exploation of human savagery and despair.
  • The Promise - Chaim Potok - ISBN: 0449239365250 No damage, pages are yellowing due to age. Just as The Chosen summoned up the depths of the commitment that loving fathers make for their sons, Chaim Potok's new novel evokes the promise that the young make to themselves, to their own lives--the obstacles life automatically interposes, and the strength, the intelligence, the daring that must constantly be brought to bear if the promise is to be kept.
  • The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - Carson McCullers (No ISBN) An Oprah Book Club Selection Wear on the front cover and spine. When she was only twenty-three, Carson  McCullers's first novel created a literary sensation. She  was very special, one of America's superlative  writers who conjures up a vision of existence as  terrible as it is real, who takes us on shattering  voyages into the depths of the spiritual isolation  that underlies the human condition. This novel is  the work of a supreme artist, Carson McCullers's  enduring masterpiece. The heroine is the strange  young girl, Mick Kelly. The setting is a small  Southern town, the cosmos universal and eternal.  The characters are the damned, the voiceless, the  rejected. Some fight their loneliness with  violence and depravity, Some with sex or drink, and some  -- like Mick -- with a quiet, intensely personal  search for beauty.
  • Oliver Wiswell - Kenneth Roberts (No ISBN) Roberts continues his vivid and accurate historical fiction with a chronicle of a Loyalist during the American Revolution. It is a rare sympathetic look at the losing side.
